One Thing Better
Jenny was a sweet girl with a soft voice and a heart-warming smile. These endearing qualities were overshadowed by one thing.
Everyone in Jenny’s home town of Heffeberg, TX will tell you her tush is a world beater…but there’s one thing better.
Even so, because of Jenny’s tush, distracted drivers hit 4 cars, 3 telephone poles, and a pizza delivery man. On any given day, a crowd of transfixed young men could be seen following her as she walked to work at the pet hospital. In one year, 4 were hospitalized with concussions after walking into lamp posts, 6 men broke ankles while tripping on unseen curbs, and one lesbian fractured her tibia while walking into fire hydrant. Jenny’s tush has been replicated in bronze and it now resides in the Smithsonian Institute.
Howard Potsdam (aka, “Jam4bootay”) had made millions by the time he was 20. His hip-hop hits included “Booty, Oh That Booty” and “What a Wonderful Booty” (featuring Louis Armstrong). It was his videos that really made his money, though, with girls upon girls shaking that…well, you know. With all his fame and riches, Jam4bootay was used to taking certain liberties with the video girls’ booties.
He cruised through the quiet streets of Heffeberg on his way to Dallas to film his next music video. Perchance, he looked over to see Jenny on her way to work…and then he ran into a bicycle rack.
He got out and followed Jenny, his hand quivering in anticipation.
“Careful!” said a passing old woman. “Her tush is great, but there’s one thing better.”
Jam4bootay ignored her and continued. Three times more, people offered the same warning. He ignored them. He caught up to her and reached out, and grabbed her butt…
He awoke in the hospital.
“Don’t sit up!” said the nurse. “You have a fractured skull.”
“You grabbed Jenny’s tush.”
“Only one thing is better than Jenny’s tush.”
“People keep saying that! What is this one thing better?”
“Jenny’s spinning back kick.”
