Official Political Humor Thread

rayzac 2,014 October 20, 2006 at 08:38 AM
Since politics and humor do not always mix, yet the lounge is a little touchy about such topics, this will be the official thread in the Podium to post humor items (jokes, cartoons, blogs, etc). Anything that is overly offensive will still be moderated according to the rules and we will enforce the "No complaining about politics" rule more closely here.

Because of the volitile nature of the Podium, this thread will be limited to posts on humor content and debating will not be allowed in this thread. We will use the spamming and/or trolling if you choose to debate in here.

System Notice: This thread has been automatically renewed after reaching a post limit. Most of its content has been moved to this thread for reference purposes.

A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.

"She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be an Obama Democrat."

"I am," replied the man. "How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct. But I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."

The man smiled and responded, "You must be a Republican."

"I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?"

"Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are or where you are going. You've risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You're in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now it's my fault."

Actually, I'm younger and better looking, but it's an interesting story.....

Quote :
He planted the trailer with its professionally painted message in his Bates County cornfield along heavily traveled U.S. 71 about an hour south of Kansas City. He wanted lots of people to see it.

They did. Including at least one with a good case of outrage, matches and a can of gas.

On May 12, Jungerman’s trailer was torched. The Rich Hill volunteer fire department responded. A week later, it was set afire again. The firefighters put it out again.

Then flames erupted in an empty farm house that Jungerman owns.

“They don’t like free speech,” said Jungerman. He put out a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.


The sign is harder to read now because some of the letters are charred; the trailer tires burnt to nothing.

“Things are getting a little out of hand out there,” said Chief Deputy Justin Moreland of the Bates County Sheriff’s Office.

Nice try, but that is far from the original joke. Here's [engineeringhumor.com] a more original version of it.

I'm personally reminded of Andrew Ryan "On the surface, the Parasite expects the doctor to heal them for free, the farmer to feed them out of charity. How little they differ from the pervert who prowls the streets, looking for a victim he can ravish for his grotesque amusement."

But I've been playing Bioshock recently.Wink

laugh out loud Yeah, my bad. What finally tipped me off was when you wrote "Will we ever get to see? Please" and then I happened to notice that "mistress" subtitle. The avatar didn't tip me off.

I thought catluver was the only female that posted in this thread. Embarrassment
