Drunk man: Where are all my taxes going?! To housing for people who can only make over $60,000 a year?! I don’t wanna pay for a stadium! Mayor Bloomberg is an asshole! The elections are coming up, people!
Business guy: So why don’t you run for office?
Drunk man: I ain’t running for office! I want the people to know! The elections are coming up! Bloomberg is an asshole!
Business guy: And who’d you vote for?
Drunk man: I didn’t vote! I was on parole!…I ain’t on parole anymo’!
