Girl #1: And then the interviewer asked me, "if you were on a deserted island with five handicapped people, what would you do to get off?" I was like "I don't know. We're screwed."
Girl #2: Wow.
Girl #1: Seriously. We would be screwed. I would just sit under a palm tree and pray or make smoke signals or something.
Girl #2: Yeah, I don't know what I would do either.
Girl #1: Well at least she said my answer was funny. Then she told me about the time she asked that question to some girl. Her response was that she would take all the people who had Down syndrome and use them as a raft to float to safety.

Guy on cell: So he tried to kill a roach and broke his knee, and that's why he's on crutches for the rest of summer.
