Down in New Orleans there lived a man named Charlie.

Charlie ever since he was a young boy wanted to grow up to be a street car conductor. When he finally became old enough, he applied for the job and lo and behold he got it. Now Charlie was the friendliest street conductor that the city has ever seen. Not only did he never complain about his job, but also he greeted everyone who boarded his street car and treated them like family.

Everything in his life was perfect for Charlie until one day he decided to operate the street car after having a few drinks. In his drunken state, he crashed the streetcar and killed all the passengers. After going to court Charlie was sentenced to death by the electric chair.

When the day came for his execution, a guard visited Charlie's cell and asked him what he wanted for his final meal. Charlie replied, "I want a rotten tomato and a raw fish." After Charlie finished his meal he headed into the execution room and sat down in the electric chair. The warden gave the order to pull the switch and the room went dark as thousands of volts passed through Charlies body.

After the switch was thrown back it came as a surprise that Charlie was in fact still alive. Having no idea what else to do the warden let Charlie out of jail but banned him from ever operating a streetcar in New Orleans. Since street cars were his life Charlie decided "Hey I'll go to Japan, I hear they have fancy new street cars there." In Japan Charlie gets a job as a conductor again, but as before decides that after having a few drinks that he is still able to work the street car.

To no surprise Charlie crashes the street car and kills all the passengers. Charlie again finds himself in jail ordering his last meal. "A rotten tomato and a raw fish," he tells the guard. After the meal was eaten, Charlie was led to the chair and once again survived the electricity. Because he didn't die, he was set free, but banned from operating the street cars in Japan.

So Charlie thought to himself, "Well I heard San Francisco still has street cars operating so I'll go there." As you can guess Charlie ends up in the same situation and again orders the same meal " A rotten tomato and a raw fish," he tells the guard.

Well, the warden from San Francisco had heard of Charlie and his previous death sentences so before he brought Charlie in to be executed he sent a letter to the mayor asking to reroute the city's electricity to the jail. The mayor approved and confident with his new found power the warden smiled and gave the order to pull the switch. The lights in the room burst from the overload and the smell of something burning overwhelmed the air. After a minute, the warden ordered the guard to shut off the chair, and as the smoke cleared, there was Charlie same as always.

Distraught with emotion, the warden told Charlie to get out of his sights. Charlie, tired of going to jail, finally decided that maybe he shouldn't be a street car conductor after all. So Charlie traveled back to New Orleans and met his friend Thibodeaux at a bar. Thibodeaux after a few minutes of small talk tells Charlie: "Everyone has heard about the electric chair incidents and I just gotta ask, how were you able to survive all them jolts of electricity through your body, was there something you did that made you resistant to it?"

Charlie looks at Thibodeaux and says "I dunno, I guess I was just a bad conductor."
