What’s The Worst of These Three Hells?

by

*Jury duty

*An audit

*Or a colonoscopy?

I’m guessing the worst of the three is jury duty. Only the biggest dummos with no lives to speak of relish the chance to be packed into a far-downtown room, where you spend several tense days trying to bullshit your way out of every trial. (“My grandfather’s best friend was a police oficer and therefore I can’t possibly be objective about this case.”)

Agreed? Or did your anaesthetic wear off during your colonoscopy–or, worse, during your audit?
