The Flower Show

Two little old ladies were sitting on a park bench outside the local town hall where a flower show was in progress. The thin one leaned over and said, 'Life is so boring. We never have any fun any more. For $10.00 I'd take my clothes off and streak through that stupid, boring flower show!' 'You're on!' said the other old lady, holding up a $10.00 note. The first little old lady slowly fumbled her way out of her clothes and, completely naked, Streaked (as fast as an old lady can) through the front door of the flower show. Waiting outside, her friend soon heard a huge commotion inside the hall, followed by loud Applause and shrill whistling. Finally, the smiling and naked old lady came through the exit door surrounded by a cheering, clapping crowd. 'What happened?' asked her waiting friend. 'I won $1000 as 1st prize for 'Best Dried Arrangement....!!!'
