Caption: Yesterday I bought some socks at the store. It came to $19.51. So I said to the clerk, hey . . . 1951! That was the year Harry Truman fired General MacArthur. She looked at me with a blank stare, so I had to explain to her all about MacArthur and Truman and the Korean War. I was in the express line, so I had to give her the Reader's Digest version, but she didn't seem very interested. And before I could finish, the people in line behind me began getting upset and starting to mutter, so I had to cut it short. So, anyway, I'm not allowed in the express line anymore.
