Justin Trudeau walks into a Bank to cash a cheque in front of me one day: As he approaches the cashier he says, "Good morning, Ma'am, could you please cash this cheque for me?”

Cashier: "It would be my pleasure to do that sir. Could you please show me your ID?"

Trudeau: "Truthfully, I didn't  bring any "ID" with me as I didn't think there would be any reason, he says, I'm the leader of the Liberal Party, "I am the Prime minister of Canada....

Cashier: "Yes sir, I know who you are, but with all the regulations and monitoring of the banks today because of all the impostors and forgers and requirements of the CIDC legislation, etc., I must insist on seeing your ID."

Trudeau: "Just ask anyone here at the bank who I am and they will tell you. Everybody knows who I am."

Cashier: "I am sorry, Mr. Trudeau, but these are the rules and I must follow them."

Trudeau: I am urging you, please, cash this cheque."

Cashier: "Look Mr. Trudeau , here is an example of what we can do. One day, Mike Weir came into the bank without ID. To prove he was Mike Weir he pulled out his putter and made a beautiful shot across the bank into a cup. With that shot we knew him to be Mike weir and cashed his cheque for him.

Another time, Wayne Gretzky came in without ID. He pulled out his hockey stick and made a fabulous shot with a hockey puck it landed in an over turned trash can at the other end of the bank. With that shot we cashed his cheque.

So, Mr. Trudeau, what can you do to prove that it is really you, and only you?"

Trudeau stands there thinking, and thinking, and finally says, ummmm "Honestly, my mind is totally blank, I have absolutely no idea what to do, I don't have a clue." I really don't have a clue.

Cashier: Says, Ok thanks Will that be large or small bills, Mr Trudeau?"

A very random internet stumble but a little bit of history... power consumption of Bryston gear as measured in 2002:

My Grandson pulled this one on me today.

What is unique about this sentence - The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy black dog.

I worked for a government contractor years (and years 😀) ago refurbishing teletype machines similar to typewriters. That sentence must have been typed hundreds of times a day to check that all letters were operating properly.

Mrs. Hunter my 4th grade teacher would not be happy I missed the "S"

But.......thinking that 4th grade was 1969, she is probably long gone, and I have nothing to fear..... :lol:
