My red herring of the week

Sitting around the dinner table, talking about the Secret Service exploits in Colombia, I said:

Those Secret Service agents are so dumb. You never dispute a bill with a whore. That will cost you dearly.

Others at the table started to agree and then caught themselves, “…wait…they shouldn’t have done all that stuff to begin with.”

I was pleased the others were able to spot my red herring so quickly. We had a good laugh.
