Funny bus driver in soft-spoken jazz voice: This is Madison Avenue. If this is you, get out. I wish I was getting out. Does anyone know how to get out? Next is Park Avenue…or it’s not. Is anyone listening? Thanks for the smile.

Lady #1: Girl, it was the best salad I ever *had*! Baby, it was better than sex! All I gotta do is eat this salad and masturbate and I’m good to go!
Lady #2: I thought it was okay, but it wasn’t better than sex.
Lady #1: That’s ’cause you smoke too much and you burnt off all your taste buds. You taste things based on memory.
