Overheard at the furniture store

Guy1 (in a suit at a high end furniture store in Bellevue Washington): “So when is Bumbershoot this year?”


Guy2 (wearing a coat that says, “Boomershoot Event Director” on the back): “I don’t know. This is Boomershoot, not Bumbershoot. It’s something different.”


Guy1: “Oh! I’m sorry. What is Boomershoot?”


Guy2 (quickly finishing his transaction): “Boomershoot is a long range precision rifle event with high explosives as the targets.”


Guy1 (eyes get big during a long pause): “That is different.”


Guy2: “Yeah. We don’t hold the event in the city.”
