The jokes this year have been on us. Here’s the first actually funny joke I’ve spotted about the 2016 campaign:
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump go into a bakery. As soon as they enter the bakery, Trump steals three pastries and puts them in his pocket. He says to Hillary, “See how clever I am? The owner didn’t see anything and I don’t even need to lie. I will definitely win the election.” Hillary says to Donald, “That’s the typical dishonesty you have displayed throughout your entire life, trickery and deceit. I am going to show you an honest way to get the same 3 pastries without stealing or lying, and also prove that I’m much more clever than you! Hillary goes to the owner of the bakery and says, “Give me a pastry and I will show you a magic trick.” Intrigued, the owner accepts Hillary’s offer and gives her a pastry Hillary swallows it and asks for another one. The owner gives her another one. Then Hillary asks for a third pastry and eats that, too. By this time, the owner is starting to wonder where the magic trick is and asks, “What did you do with the pastries?” Hillary replies, “Look in Donald’s pocket”!
I don’t care if it’s a rerun of an older joke (it sounds like one), it was new to me.
Spotted, in all places, in the comments section to Gizmodo, Conspiracy Theorists Are Very Concerned About Hillary’s Mic Pack.
Got any good jokes about this election? We could sure use them.
The Miami-Dade Expressway Authority (MDX) announced on Monday that it plans to greatly expand the number of toll plazas along State Road 836. The plan, which will take thirteen years and cost upwards of $1.4 billion dollars, will see 60 new toll installations along the 15-mile expressway. The design was unveiled to the County Commission and Metropolitan Planning Organization to resounding applause by an unnamed representative of the MDX, a Borg-like collective comprised of 13 assimilated, unautonomous board members.
This came up on my RSS feed, and I was really believing it, especially given the photo of the Sunpass scanners, until about the end.
Actually, like much great dark humor, it expresses a deeper truth.
