Son: "Daddy, I have to write a special report for school, but I don't know what Politics is".

Father: " Well, let's take our home as an example. I am the bread-winner, so let's call me Capitalism. Your Mum is the administrator of money, so we'll call her Government. We take care of your need, so let's call you The People. We'll call the maid the Working Class and your brother we can call The Future. Do you understand son?

Son: "I'm not really sure, Dad. I'll have to think about it."

That night awakened by his brother's crying, the boy went to see what was wrong. Discovering that the baby had seriously soiled his nappy, the boy went to his parents' room and found his mother sound asleep. He went to the maid's room, where, peeking through the keyhole, he saw his father in bed with the maid. The boy's knocking went totally unheeded by his father and the maid, so the boy returned to his room and went back to sleep. The next morning he reported to his father.

Son: "Dad, now I think I understand what Politics is." Father: "Good son! Can you explain it to me in your own words?

" Son: "Well Dad, while Capitalism is screwing the Working Class, Government is sound asleep, the People are being completely ignored and the Future is full of S**t."

It is really sad that an adult would find it offensive....was it screwed or was it s**t that did it??


LollyWithSprinklez Report 9 Feb 2013 02:16

We may never know Jax!!

I rather expected it though... It is Friday and the itchy finger is up late :-(

I thought it very funny and very apt, but the title and first line on the thread was an open temptation to somebody with Friday nightitis.

Agree with you Ann, to be honest I wasn't surprised, after all it was only a joke that was RRd and not a thread that loses it's momentum with constant RRs

Just sad really that someone has such a sheltered life that they took offense but didn't have the confidence to say why :-S

:-D :-D
