Joke of The Day

 Ryan and his wife are having hard financial times, so they decide she'll become a hooker.
She's not quite sure what to do, so Ryan says, "Stand in front of that bar and pick up a guy. Tell him a hundred bucks. If you've got a question, I'll be parked around the corner.
She's not there five minutes when a guy pulls up and says, "How much?"
"A hundred dollars."
"Damn. All I've got is thirty."
"Hold on," she says and runs back to Ryan. "What can he get for thirty dollars?"
"A handjob," Ryan replies.
She runs back and tells the guy all he gets for thirty dollars is a handjob.
He says okay, she gets in the car, he unzips his pants, and out pops a simply HUGE male unit.
She stares at it for a minute, and then says, "I'll be right back."
She runs back around the corner and says breathlessly, "Ryan, can you loan this guy seventy bucks?"
