Lazy Sunday Service

I'm reading Gun Monkeys by Victor Gischler at moment. A kind of madcap, crime caper novel that has a few chuckles in it. Here's a typical gag that made me laugh.

"We might as well cash it in," Bob said. "He's got the yellow ones, the green ones and now the blue ones."

As far as Bob was concerned, nothing had a proper name. Everything was the blue one or the green one or the lumpy one or the wet one or the one that smelled like cheese. He'd been married nine years before his wife had caught him with her sister. When I asked which sister, he'd said, "The easy one."
