One evening, just after dusk, Jack Benny, then in his early 80s was taking a stroll in Central Park when a young mugger held him up by gunpoint and said with menacing threat:
“OK Old man, your money or your life. What’s it gonna be!”
Jack just looked at the mugger with a curious stare and said nothing.
Looking anxiously around to see if any witnesses were present, the mugger prodded Jack with the gun and repeated:
“Come on, old man, answer me. What’s it gonna be, your money or your life!”
Whereupon Jack focused his glance on his assailant and said with considerable irritation:
“Don’t rush me young fellow, I’m trying to decide!”
Thanks for the joke (and wise advice…) Burton!
