Political Humor

lokakuu 15, 2007, 2:31 pm

There as a better than average Soviet joke in one thread, and someone suggested a special thread for humor. Instead of limiting it to Russian jokes, lets just poke fun at anyone who seems to deserve it. Or not.

Remember, this is the humor thread. Tongues must be inserted firmly in cheeks!

A soviet boy asks his father, "Pappa, what is capitalism?"

"Ah, son, that is when Man oppresses his fellow Man."

"But then, what is communism?"

"Ah, son, that is when it works in reverse."

There is absolutely nothing funny about politics.

Politics is okay, but there's something funny about it.

I say you gotta laugh to keep from crying.

...or you can ignore it and wish it will go away--like the upcoming elections.

Anyone got any new Ming jokes now that he's resigned?

George Bush, surrounded by his entourage of Secret Service men, makes an impulsive visit to an upscale Washington DC restaurant for lunch.

The pretty, flustered young waitress brings him the menu. He studies it for a minute, scowling, and then looks up at her and smiles and says

"Well, you know what Ah'd really lahk? Ah think Ah'd lahk a quickie!"

She blushes deeply and then, through tears, shouts at him ... "You dirty old man ... you're just like all the others! Why, I voted for you because you said you believed in family values ... you nasty hypocrite!"

And then she spins on her heel and runs off, weeping.

Bush stares at her retreating figure with his mouth open, dumbfounded.

Then a Secret Service man bends over and whispers in his ear ... "Mr President ... it's pronounced 'keesh'".

Finally, a new bumper sticker for BOTH political parties.

This hottest selling political bumper sticker comes from New York State:


Democrats put it on the rear bumper.

Republicans put it on the front bumper.

Not too sure that this is *actually* funny.

>2 geneg: And yet there are so many programs on TV that capitalize on political humor, not to mention podcasts, books, political cartoons, etc. It seems people find a tipping point where the absurdity of events passes from seriously ridiculous to ridiculously funny.

Someone Used AI to Recast Ted Cruz and Other Republicans as Drag Queens Because Your God Has Abandoned You

These photos of high-profile GOPers in drag are very special, indeed.

Original tweet deleted but if you hurry you may catch McConnell, Bannon, Giuilani, Cruz et al. in drag:

(Amazing what a little glam can do, but originators met their match with Bannon!)

This dude didn't buy into the Succession series storyline or characters. Who would have bought into a saga featuring a sicko billionaire/American president and his adult brats?? Unfortunately, we know that saga happened because we all lived thru it!

Ukrainians joke (as Prigozhin's Wagner Group invades Russia):

"According to the CCB news agency, a large-scale supply crisis has occurred in the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
NATO factories work day and night, but still cannot meet the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine for popcorn."

Meanwhile, a comment on Instagram showing Russian troops staging:
“They are distracting you from the BIDEN family. Wake up!”

One day Kevin McCarthy is speaking truth to power about Russia’s war invasion,
the next he’s promising to impeach a squirrel in Joe Biden’s garden.
Must be tiring.
