Today's Joke - Tue, 05 Nov 2013

Barack Obama is visiting a school. In one class, he asks the students if anyone can give him an example of a "tragedy". One little boy stands up and offers "If my best friend who lives next door was playing in the street when a car came along and killed him, that would be a tragedy." "No," Obama says, "That would be an ACCIDENT." A girl raises her hand. "If a school bus carrying fifty children drove off a cliff, killing everyone involved... that would be a tragedy." "I'm afraid not," explains Obama. "That is what we would call a GREAT LOSS." The room is silent; none of the other children volunteer. "What?" asks Obama, "Isn't there any one here who can give me an example of a tragedy?" Finally, a boy in the back raises his hand. In a timid voice, he says: "If an airplane carrying the Obama family were blown up by a bomb, THAT would be tragedy." "Wonderful!" Obama beams. "Marvelous! And can you tell me WHY that would be a tragedy?" "Well," says the boy, "because it couldn't be an accident, and it certainly would be no great loss!"

You've done it now Billie.. I went back to bed for a while..I had a late night and got up too early..came back wondering if I would even still be on here for (gasp) mentioning people should stand up for injustices by this administration. I personally don't wish death on the president (and good start up to talk about this by the way..you got everyone's attention)..but I am HONESTLY sick and tired of watching the president, his cronies, and the media get away with all of this..and that (imo)  is DISGUSTING...NOT FUNNY, and Americans NEED their head examined for just assuming someone is going to save the day for them.  I don't even trust the conservatives in office anymore..they either start off good, but back off..or go rhino.

Not an Obama supporter at all but I wouldn't joke about his death.

I didn't write it.

It is the "Joke of the day" - tell them.

Find this one funny?

Bush's Tragedy

One day, President Bush visited an elementary school. All the kids were so excited to get to meet the President. He began to talk to them and asked them to define the word ''tragedy.''

"Well," one girl replied, "If my mommy ran over my dog, Rover, that would be a tragedy!"

The President smiled at the little girl and said, "No, sweetie. That would be an accident! Can anyone give it a try?"

A little boy sitting across the room raised his hand and said, "I know! I know! If our bus driver ran off of a cliff and killed everyone!"

The President shook his head and said, "No son. That would be a great loss! Doesn't anyone know of a good example of a tragedy?"

A small girl raised her hand and said, "Well, Mr. President, if you and Laura were in Air Force One and it was hit by a missile and blown to smithereens, most people would think that that was a tragedy!"

"Very good," he said. "And what was your reason for that answer?"

"Well," she said, "It would not be an accident and it sure would not be a great loss!"

Kerry: Or, I could have gone to 1600 Pennsylvania and killed the real bird with one stone.
