Boxing Willie
"Who is this 'Boxing Willie'?", I asked the guy at the counter.

He stared at me as if I were an alien or a tourist from California. "We have a boxing smoker, and Willie Nelson is playing on the 3rd, and there are fireworks!" he gushed in his best Chamber of Commerce voice.

"Hmmmm," I mused, "given his recent run-in for marijuana possession, wouldn't 'Smoker Willie' be more appropriate?"

He said he would mention it to the boss.
