Why walking up and down the many aisles he noticed a long cylindrical shiny object behind one counters where a clerk was working. He walked over to the employee behind the counter and asked "Miss What's that shiny object behind you on that ledge." Oh this, she replied, "That's my thermos."
"A thermos"? replied the township officer "What does it do?" The employee replied, "It keeps my hot things hot and my cold things cold."
Boy o boy, the township officer thought; that was just about the most incredible thing he had ever heard of. What a wonderful device. The employee said we sell them here at the store they are down in aisle 5. The township officer immediately went down to aisle 5 picked it up and bought it.
The following week the township officer brought his new thermos with him to the township meeting. When the other township officers saw that shiny object they asked him "What is that thing?"
"Why that's a thermos" said the proud township officer. "What does a thermos do" asked one of the township officers? "Well it keep my hot foods hot and cold foods cold".
"Really they all said - what do you have in it now" they all wanted to know. "Well, right now I have a Popsicle and my coffee in it."
