A friend recently sent me this in an e-mail, apparently from a classified ad in a Florida newspaper:
4 Sale: One Beleaguered State
Lots of waterlogged property, beautiful views of crashing tidal waves. Land already cleared of pesky trees (some cleanup required). Lack of electricity and gasoline makes for fun historic living environment. Increasingly popular see the stars, feel the rain roof modifications on housing. Plenty of insurance agents available for consultation, however may experience difficulty getting one to return your call.
