This guy is flying down the road, and he comes over a bridge.

Sure enough, Officer Ellison with a radar gun is sitting on the other side of the bridge and pulls him over.

Jim walks up to the guy's car and asks, "What's the hurry?"

The guy says, "I'm late for work."

"What do you do?"

The guy responds, "Well, I'm a rectum stretcher."

Jim says, "What? A rectum stretcher?"

The guy says, "Yeah. I start with a finger, then work my way up to two fingers... eventually I get a hand in, then both hands, and I slowly stretch it until it's about six feet wide."

Jim asks, "What do you do with a six-foot asshole?"

"Well, you give him a radar gun and park him at the end of a bridge....."

Song: Day Old Donuts

(Tune: Banana Boat Song -- Day, Oh!)

**CHORUS
Day old, Daaay old
Day old donuts for one ninety-nine
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day old
Day old donuts for one ninety-nine.

Work all day in the donut shop.
Day old donuts for one ninety-nine.
Some are filled with jelly, Some are glazed on top.
Day old donuts for one ninety-nine. **

Come Mr. Policeman, buy my aging pastry.
Day old donuts for one ninety-nine.
They are cheap, but they're not very tasty.
Day old donuts for one ninety-nine. **

Half dozen, whole dozen, buy a whole bunch,
Day old donuts for one ninety-nine.
Put 'em down at breakfast, Bring 'em up at lunch.
Day old donuts for one ninety-nine. **

Once there was a donut,
Boy was it humongous.
Day old donuts for one ninety-nine.
Took a bite and found it full of fungus.
Day old donuts for one ninety-nine. **
