I sent this once before. Todays banjo program reminded me.
A family is sitting down to dinner when they hear loud stomping steps coming up to the their second floor apartment, then a loud pounding at the door. The family is frightened but finally grandma gets up, goes to the door and asks"Who is there? A monstrous voice answers "Its the grim reaper of death." Grandma throws open the door and exclaims "Thank God, we thought it was another Banjo player" I made this up as a variation of a joke I heard on your program years ago only the answer was "the KGB". Of course it could also be "Homeland Security".
