Bungee Jumping In Mexico

Alice and Frank were Bungee jumping one day. Alice says to Frank, 'You
know we could make a lot of money running our own Bungee-jumping business
in Mexico.' Frank thinks this is a great idea, so they pool their money
and buy everything they need: a tower, an elastic cord, insurance, etc.
They travel to Mexico and begin to set up on the square. As they are
constructing the tower, a crowd begins to assemble. Slowly, more and more
people gather to watch them at work. When they had finished, there was such a
crowd,they thought it would be a good idea to give a demonstration, so Alice
jumps. She bounces at the end of the cord, but when she comes back up, Frank
notices that she has a few cuts and scratches. Unfortunately, Frank isn't
able to catch her and she falls again, bounces, and comes back up again. This
time, she is bruised and bleeding. Again, Frank misses her. Alice falls
again and bounces back up. This time, she comes back pretty messed up --
she's got a couple of broken bones and is almost unconscious. Luckily, Frank
finally catches her this time and says, 'What happened? Was the cord too
long?' Barely able to speak, Alice gasps, 'No, the Bungee cord was fine ... it was the crowd! ... What the HELL is a pinata?!
