A young woman was sitting on the bus cooing her baby when a drunk staggered aboard and down the aisle. Stopping in front of her, he looked down and pronounced, "Lady, that is the ugliest baby I have ever seen."
The woman burst into tears and there was such an outcry of sympathy among the other passengers that they kicked the drunk off. But the woman kept on sobbing and wailing so loudly that finally the driver pulled the bus over to the side of the road.
"Look, I don't know what the bum said to you, "the driver told his inconsolable passenger, "but to help calm you down I'm going to get you a cup of tea." And off he went, coming back shortly with a cup of tea from the corner deli.
"Now calm down, Lady," soothed the driver, "everything is going to be OK. See, I brought you a cup of nice, hot tea, and I even got a banana for your pet monkey!"
