Joke: San Francisco Story


A tourist walks into a curio shop in San Francisco, where he spots a lifelike bronze statue of a rat. It has no price tag, but it's so striking he decides he has to have it.

"How much for the bronze rat?" he asks the owner.

"$12 for the rat and $100 for the story."

He hands him $12 and says "I'll take the rat, you can keep the story."

He walks out carrying his bronze rat. Soon he notices a few real rats crawling out of the allys and sewers and scampering after him. Disconcerted, he walks faster. Within a couple of blocks there's hundreds of rats and they're starting to squeak. He begins to trot toward the Bay and the next time he looks over his shoulder, the rats number in the MILLIONS. They're squealing is louder and they're running towards him faster and faster.

Really scared now, he runs to the edge of the Bay and hurls the bronze rat out into the water as far as he can. Then, he watches in amazement as the millions of rats all jump into the Bay after it, where all of them drown like, well, like drowned rats.

The man runs back to the curio shop as fast as he can.

"Ah ha, you've come back for the story," says the owner.

"No," says the man, "I've come back to see if you have a bronze Democrat, a bronze Muslim, and anything French."
