A Card for a Guard
AA WORKS IN PRISON, TOO
"SAY, Bub, what's the good of AA in prison? You can't get anything to drink in here," said the guard, scrutinizing Bub with a skeptical eye.
"True enough," answered Bub, "there are no cocktail lounges or taverns behind these walls, and we are free of that kind of temptation. But actually that is not our problem. The kernel of the problem lies in socializing ourselves by developing right thinking. And that goes for you alkies outside, too."
"Humph!" snorted the guard, "you guys didn't get in here by going to Sunday school!"
