Excuse Me We Can't Hear

After a long and contentious meeting, two village trustees decided to stop in at a local nightspot not far away from the village hall before going home.  Because it was late and a weeknight, only the bartender and two other patrons were in the bar watching a ball game.

As the two village trustees began to relive the events that occurred at the their convoluted board public meeting, their voices began to escalate and their volume rose dramatically.  Finally, one of the other patrons watching the ball game turned toward the two trustees and loudly said, "Excuse me, but we can't hear.
"That's good," said one trustee.  "This is a private conversation."
