The Boss Says, “No One Says ‘Motherfucker’ in Front of Me,” and Gary’s Out on His Ass

Hipster #1: I’ll ask Gary.
Hipster #2: Gary got fired. He was robbed at gunpoint when he went to buy drugs.
Hipster #1: And he got fired for that? How did his boss know?
Hipster #2: Well, people talk, you know, so the boss called Gary in and asked him straight out if he got robbed while buying drugs.
Hipster #1: And Gary admitted it?
Hipster #2: Nah, he said, ‘I wasn’t robbed, I kicked that motherfucker’s ass.’

Good Insincerity, but You Blew Your Line

Big black man is minding own business when two-year-old child sitting behind him slaps him in the back of the head.

Big black guy turning around, startled: What the fuck?!
Child’s mother: What did I tell you about hitting people?! [Child shrugs his shoulders and looks confused.] I told you we don’t hit people. That’s not nice. Now, what do you say?
