One afternoon in LA, a man on his way home from work suddenly comes to a dead stop in traffic. After fifteen minutes of not moving, he notices a police officer visiting every stopped car.
Curious, the motorist rolls down his window and asks, "Excuse me officer, what's the delay?"
The officer replies, "O.J. Simpson is lying down in the middle of the freeway, threatening to douse himself in gasoline and set himself on fire. "
"Why?" asks the motorist.
"He claims he just doesn't have $33.5 million for the Goldmans. I'm walking around taking up a collection for him." The policeman paused as if he were expecting the motorist to offer a contribution.
"Oh really? " replied the motorist, "How much have you collected so far?"
"About three hundred gallons."
