2008 Elections: Entertainment!
Just a little over two weeks left. We're down to the wire. And former colleague and friend N (you know who you are) sends this joke:
For your amusement.
Barack Obama is invited to meet with the Pope while he is vacationing in Venice.
The conservative press reluctantly watches the semi-private audience, hoping they will be able to allot minimal coverage, if any.
The Pope asks Senator Obama to join him on a gondola ride through the canals of Venice.
They're admiring the sights and agreeing on moral issues when, all of a sudden, the Pope's hat (zucchetto) blows off his head and out into the water.
The gondolier starts to reach for the Pontiff's cap with his pole, but this move threatens to overturn the floating craft.
Barack waves the tour guide off, saying, "Wait, wait. I'll take care of this. Don't worry."
He steps off the gondola onto the surface of the water and walks out to the Pope's hat, bends over and picks it up. He walks back across the water to the gondola and steps aboard.
He hands the hat to the Pope amid stunned silence.
The next morning the buzz among Republicans in Congress & on Fox News was like, "Guess what? Have you heard, Obama can't swim!"
Anybody got any more good ones? Send them over! Stumble It!
