Commies in Virginia

Lee and I went out to do some errands.  A State Trooper passed us on the highway.  Virginia is a Commonwealth rather than a state, which a distinction without a difference as far as I can tell.


"Why don't they call them Commonwealth Troopers instead of State Troopers,?" Lee asked.

I thought about that for a minute and then it came to me.  "The nickname for a State Trooper is a Statie.  Can you imagine if we had Commies driving around giving out tickets?"


  1. Heh, heh! I'll remember that one!

  2. I can help you with that question.....Virginia is still officially a commonwealth. We're the only state that doesn' t call itself a state. We've officially been a commonwealth since we broke from the British.

  3. So does that make ALL of us commies?
