Humorist Dave Barry’s “Ask Mr. Language Person”

Today I’m sharing a very funny post by one of my favorite authors, Dave Barry. I hope you will enjoy this laugh with  me.

Ask Mister Language Person:

Question: In the song, “I Shot the Sheriff,” how come the singer keeps loudly announcing that he shot the sheriff, but he did NOT shoot the deputy? Is he in some weird municipality where it’s a serious criminal offense to shoot a deputy, but if you shoot the actual sheriff, hey, no problem?

Answer: Your question is very important to us.

LOL! For those of us who are old enough to remember this song, we can’t help but smile. 🙂
