Last weekend on the way to finish his Christmas shopping, Bruce wasn't really paying attention and drove into the back of a car at some traffic lights.
The driver got out and it turned out he was a dwarf.
He said, "I'm not happy."
Bruce said, "Well, which one are you then?"

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of you from all of us.
