For today’s Friday Funnies I thought I would write about a little political humour. As usual I got the following bit of political humour in my email. I’m constantly amazed how some people can come up with some of this stuff. It’s really quite witty.

The thing with most political humour is that not everybody finds them funny. It all depends on which side of the political fence you’re sitting on. That being the case it’s pretty hard trying to find political humour that someone won’t find offensive. Luckily I fount the following cartoon that I reckon almost everyone would agree with.
That image has a hell of a lot of truth in it. It never ceased to amaze me how politicians never have to tighten their belts but the rest of the country has to.
While there are probably a lot of honest politicians out there I’m sure there are also some shady ones as well. Have you ever wondered how some companied win government contracts? I know there are times when a lot of people are left scratching their heads after some contracts are one. A lot of the time it doesn’t include local businesses and other times you know they could have done better with the price.
I wonder if maybe the following joke has some truth in it?
Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House. One is from Chicago, another is from Tennessee, and the third is from Minnesota. All three go with a White House official to examine the fence.
The Minnesota contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil. “Well,” he says, “I figure the job will run about $900. $400 for materials, $400 for my crew, and $100 profit for me.”
The Tennessee contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, “I can do this job for $700. $300 for materials, $300 for my crew, and $100 profit for me.”
The Chicago contractor doesn’t measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers, “$2,700.” The official, incredulous, says, “You didn’t even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?” The Chicago contractor whispers back, “$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire the guy from Tennessee to fix the fence.” “Done!” replies the government official.
And that, my friends, is how the new stimulus plan will work.
And that my loyal readers is the end of another Friday Funnies. I sure hope you enjoyed this weeks political humour.
