This isn't exactly a groaner but I found it in the archives and it struck me as timely. It's been there for a very long time -- two years -- and I'd all but forgotten it was there. It might be funny if it didn't typify thinking by certain people in this country.
One afternoon, a rich politician was riding in the back of his stretch limousine when he spotted two men eating grass by the roadside. He ordered his driver to stop and he got out to investigate.
“Why are you eating grass?” he asked one man.
“We don’t have any money for food,” said one man.
The rich politician replied, “Oh, then come along with me to my estate.” “But sir, I have a wife with two children!”
“Bring them along!” He turned to the other man, “And you, come with us too!”
“But sir, I have a wife with six children!” the second man said.
“Bring them as well!” They all climbed into the limo. Once underway, one of the poor fellows said, “Sir, you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you.”
The politician replied, “Well, it makes perfect sense. You have nothing to eat, the grass at my home is three feet tall, and a gardener would demand a fortune to cut it!”
Name your' favorite' politician as the culprit!!!!!
