A young punk gets on a train. He has spiked, multicoloured hair that is green, yellow, orange and red. His clothes are a tattered mix of leather rags. His legs are bare and he’s wearing worn-out shoes. His entire face and the exposed parts of his body are riddled with piercings and jewellery. He has two large feathers as earrings.
He sits down in the only vacant seat, directly across from an old man who spends the next 10 minutes looking him up and down. Finally, the punk becomes self-conscious and turns to the old man and says, “What are you looking at, you old fart? Didn’t you do anything wild when you were young?”
Without missing a beat, the old man replies, “Of course! Back when I was young and defending my country I got incredibly intoxicated one evening and made love to a parrot. I thought perhaps you might be my son!”
