I got this email from a Joisey friend earlier today –

What is with Mass Congressperson Barney Frank causing a ruckus on the Fire Island Ferry down heah in the New Yawk metro area. I really think you can do a summer humor piece on this one, he was bent out of shape because he didn’t get the 1 dollah senya discount. Like this guy knows how to watch a buck, billions to the Investment Bankers disappear and he worries about a buck senya discount.
Now, while I know that the Packy is an unimpeachable source, I just had a hearty laugh and decided to check it out before posting. But since it’s on Fox25, I guess the story is out there…
More after the jump
Come with me to the Fire Island Ferry…
Frank – I get the discount, too.
Clerk – I’m sorry, sir, but you need a valid photo ID for that.
Frank – But I’m famous! Google Me! You’ll see I’m old enough!
Clerk – I’m sorry, Congressman, but the government ferry terminal has a porn blocker, so I can’t access you on Google…
Frank – I AM A QUALIFIED SUFFICK COUNTY RESIDENT!
Clerk – We DO have a discount, but it’s for SUFFOLK in JOISEY, not some SUFFICK…
Frank – I DEMAND my dollah! I’m ENTITLED! My friend – SENATAH – John Kerry will take me on his boat next time, and then…
Clerk (now wishing she hadn’t filled out that damn summer job application) – I am SORRY, sir, but I cannot MAKE exceptions…there are people behind you, sir, and the ferry is getting ready to leave…sir, I am going to HAVE to ask you…
