A Political Joke...(This has always been a favorite 'joke' of mine, not because it's so hilarious... it isn't... But because it takes a very complex issue of our time and sums it up beautifully. Whether you look at it as rich vs. poor, Republican vs. Democrat, conservative vs. liberal, or 1 % vs. 99% ...this says it all...)
The C.E.O. of Mobil Oil, a waitress, and a welfare mom were seated together at a table. There were 12 cookies on the table. The CEO took 11 of the cookies. The welfare mom took the one cookie that was left.
The CEO looked at the waitress and said, "Did you see she took your cookie?"
(Now you don't have to use 'welfare mom' when you tell it. You can easily substitute any poor person, disabled person, immigrant, minority. They'll all work just as well.)
