Default Kerry'* School Visit

Here'* a good one.
Subject: Kerry'* School Visit

John Kerry visits a primary school and sits in on one of the classes, which is in the middle of a discussion of words and their meaning.

The teacher asks Mr. Kerry if he would like to lead the discussion of the word "tragedy".

The illustrious senator asks the class for an example of a "tragedy".

One little boy stands up and offers: "If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a runaway tractor comes along and knocks him dead, that would be a tragedy."

"That'* wrong", Kerry ...shouts. "That would be considered an accident."

A little girl raises her hand: "If a school bus carrying 50 children drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy."

"You are >completely incorrect” ...shouts... the senator. "That would be what we would consider a great loss."

The room goes silent. No other children volunteer. Kerry searches the room. "Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?"

Finally, at the back of the room, a small boy raises his hand. In a quiet voice, he says, "If a plane carrying Senator John Kerry were struck by a missile and blown to smithereens, that would be a tragedy".

"Fantastic!" exclaims Kerry. "You are absolutely right. Can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?"

"Well", says the boy, "because it sure as heck wouldn't be a great loss, and it probably wouldn't be an accident!"

i've noticed a slight tint of anti-kerry'ism going on in the last few jokes...I could make quite a few Bush jokes, but sadly most of them aren't "haha" funny...more sad and depressing...*sigh*
