At the newspaper designers'convention, a drunk copy editor stumbles into the hospitality room and says to the bartender, "Hey, heard the one about the newspaper designer who --?"
The bartender interrupts, saying, "Hey, you're at a newspaper design convention. That 300-pound guy over there is a former professional wrestler and is a designer. The guy at your left is a managing editor who is a former Navy SEAL and has fired hundreds of reporters, and he's a designer. The frowzy blonde chatting up that young reporter is an assistant features editor, and she's a designer. Do you really want to be telling that joke in here?"
After a 3-beat pause, the copy editor says, "You're right, thanks for bringing that up. Glad you're all here, so now I won't have to explain this joke four times."
