The politically correct, or in good taste to everyone, joke thread by Lounge Trekker on 3 February 2009 9:55pm
 
Nothing funny to be said in this category by this guy. If something comes up...oh, that could be construed as being an innuendo, so please disregard that.

Is it OK to tell jokes about politicians that are incorrect?

What, not even jokes about Scottish people?

Ken Dunn:I guess it is;--you can certainly tell jokes about British politicians which are incorrect (which btw is not quite the same as untrue..),but if you tell jokes about politicians they should always be tested for "political-correctness"--if you know what I mean. :))

Lounge Trekker:Thank you for starting this thread;we've been waiting a long time for a thread as good as this one.

Can I test your hypothesis (no innuendo meant!)with a couple of topical 'political' jokes,please? (If anyone is offended by them,be sure to shout loudly):--

Question:--WEN JIABAO?
Answer:--You bow when the Chinese Premier enters the auditorium,and you wish him a Happy Chinese New Year in mandarin,viz:"Gong Xi Fa Chai!"

A general tip:Don't whistle at him,or throw your shoe(s) at him,or start shouting at him about the chronic human rights injustices in Tibet,because he despises that sort of behaviour.

Now that his post-inaugural 'honeymoon' period is nearly over,millions of Americans (especially the women) are waiting expectantly to get their first glimpse of President Obama's huge package (no innuendo intended,well not much..);

..also,millions of Americans are savouring the prospect of receiving an uplifting physical stimulus..I thought:Gosh! --Did Mr Obama really promise THAT? --He really IS a change for the better!...Maybe he was talking b*llocks,or maybe economics,or maybe I just mis-heard him and he said 'fiscal'.

Incorrect politicians are fair game. And what about gays? I think they're doing it all wrong. Because they are incorrect we should be able to joke freely about them.

There was the gay farmer whose living was made growing gummy bears and disco balls.

I heard a gay comedian say that in different words (and tones, and body language) and he was hilarious. C'mon, laugh you guys! It's politically incorrect to NOT laugh at a gay comedian who jokes about his or her sexual preferences.

Q Did you hear of the thrifty Scot who got a new wallet?

A It has a Velcro© closure...it's so tight it even screams when you open it.

Yes, I heard that one, Pete. about the Scots. I keep hearing all sorts of things about their not being able to part with their money. What are they waiting for? They can't take it with them, thats for sure! lol

Pete, about the gay joke: Ha. Ha. Ha.

Eric Idle once said of gay marriage: "Why shouldn't they be allowed to marry? They have a right to suffer like the rest of us."

Wanna see a funny picture of Gordon Brown,alongside Sir Fred Goodwin and Alistair Darling,all wearing funny tartan hats? Then google:---

ALLAN MASSIE:You English think we Scots are thrifty and cautious... but as Gord...

I suppose we can't trust Gordon Brown to dip into his own personal piggy-bank to bail anybody out (because of course he's not only a Scot but also a Presbyterian),yet he's quite brazen about fixing to have the British taxpayers spend untold billions of pounds bailing out greedy bankers like Sir Fred Goodwin,who's also a Scot,and The Royal Bank Of Scotland.
