An old joke

January 14, 2011

Here’s an old joke that you’ve probably heard before and I apologize for that. But there’s so much snow already that it’s getting difficult to think clearly because all I see, everywhere I look, is snow. Snow and snow and more snow. Did you know that since November 30, 2010, here in Minneapolis/St. Paul, we’ve only had 10 days where we didn’t see any snow? Now more snow today and more snow on Monday and the snow will probably never end. Ever! It’ll never end. The snow will never end. NEVER! IT’S NEVER ENDING! IT’LL NEVER END! SNOOOOOW!

Sorry, I got a little carried away there for a sec . . .

Free Kittens

Little Susie was standing on the sidewalk in front of her house. Next to her was a basket containing a number of newborn kittens. In Susie’s small hand she was holding a homemade sign advertising free kittens.

After about an hour with no one taking interest, a line of long black limousines pulled up beside Susie. The rear door of the lead limousine opened and out stepped a woman with a huge smile on her face.

“Hello there little girl, I’m Sarah Palin.  You’re giving away free kittens, is that right?” she asked.

“Yes,” Susie said.

“How old are they?” asked Sarah Palin.

“They’re so young, Ms Palin, that their eyes  aren’t even open yet.”

“And what kind of kittens are they?”

“They’re Tea Party kittens,” answered Susie.

Sarah Palin was delighted. She congratulated Susie on doing a good job finding new homes for all the kittens and before leaving, wished her much success.

As soon as Sarah Palin returned to her car, she called her public relations advisor and told him about the little girl and the free kittens. “And the best part,” she told him. “Is that the little girl told me they’re Tea Party kittens!”

Recognizing the perfect opportunity for publicity, the two agreed that the former governor should return the next day and in front of the assembled media, have Susie talk about her Tea Party kittens.

Plans were quickly put in motion, and the next day the long line of black limousines once again pulled up in front of Susie standing on the sidewalk with her free kittens sign. The motorcade was followed by news vans from Fox, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR and CNN.

Cameras and audio equipment were quickly set up and when all was in place, Sarah Palin stepped out of her limousine and, just as she did the day before, walked over to Susie and her free kittens.

“Hello, again,” she said. “I would be so happy if you would tell all my friends here what type of kittens you’re giving away today.”

“Yes ma’am,” Susie said. “The kittens are Democrats.”

Taken by surprise, Sarah Palin stammered. D. . . D. . . Democrats? But . . . but . . . yesterday you told me they were Tea Party kittens.”

“Yes ma’am, I know.” Susie said. “But that was yesterday and today they have their eyes open.”
