A Little Humor: U.S. Senator Gets Mugged

In Washington D.C., late one night, an armed robber wearing a ski mask jumped into a path of a distinguished, well-dressed man and stuck a gun in his ribs. 

“Give me all your money!” the robber demanded.

“Do you know who I am?” asked the indignant, affluent man. “I am a United States Senator!”

“In that case,” replied the armed robber. “Give me all MY money!”
