Jarrod Atkinson, trying not to shout.
If you're meeting up with friends later today, Jarrod Atkinson has a joke for you to try. He told his rendition through a megaphone Saturday afternoon, before a crowd outside the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, and it went a little like this:

"Knock knock."
Who's there?
"Inflation."
(Confused pause from the audience)
"That's right, there's nothing funny about inflation."

After throwing their support behind the tax day tea party at Dallas City Hall, the Texas Liberty Campaign was back this weekend with a whole new batch of signs (some of which could use a proof-reading), decrying big government, complaining about the Federal Reserve, and leveling some serious smack at its chairman, Ben Bernanke.

Out in front of the Pearl Street building from noon to 2 p.m., the protest drew around 100 people, some with "Don't Tread on Me" flags and T-shirts with incendiary corporate logo parodies -- some of which were actually were pretty funny. (Well, considering that bar is set pretty low.)
