The Saturday Night Joke


The king wanted to go fishing, and he asked the royal weather forecaster the forecast for the next few hours.

The palace meteorologist assured him that there was no chance of rain so the king and the queen went fishing.

On the way he met a man with a fishing pole riding on a donkey, and he asked the man if the fish were biting.

The fisherman said, "Your Majesty, you should return to the palace! In just a short time I expect a huge rain storm."

The king replied: "I hold the palace meteorologist in high regard. He is an educated and experienced professional. Besides, I pay him very high wages. He gave me a very different forecast. I trust him."

So the king continued on his way.

However, in a short time a torrential rain fell from the sky. The King and Queen were totally soaked.

Furious, the king returned to the palace and gave the order to fire the meteorologist.

Then he summoned the fisherman and offered him the prestigious position of royal forecaster.

The fisherman said, "Your Majesty, I do not know anything about forecasting. I obtain my information from my donkey. If I see my donkey's ears drooping, it means with certainty that it will rain."

So the king hired the donkey.

And thus began the practice of hiring dumb asses to work in influential positions of government. The practice is unbroken to this date.

Thus, the democratic party symbol was born.

How beautiful we were.

A short list. In no particular order.

We told our children that any child could grow up to be President. And then we made it come true.

We had car shows, boat shows, beauty shows and dog shows.

We ran robots on the surface of Mars by remote control.

Our women came from all over the world in all shapes and sizes and hues and scents.

We actually believed that all men are created equal and tried to make it come true.

Everybody liked our movies and loved our television shows.

We tried to educate everybody, whether they wanted it or not. Sometimes we succeeded.

We did Levis.

We held the torch high and hundreds of millions came. No matter what the cost.

We saved Europe twice and liberated it once..................

Any distinguishing tattoos? No officer that isn't my name.

Unlike past First Ladies in our past, the current FLOTUS is charming and Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

First lady Melania Trump made an unannounced visit to wounded service members at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland on Tuesday.


Mrs. Trump, who underwent kidney surgery at the Bethesda hospital back in May, didn’t publicly announce her visit until after she arrived — the latest in a string of “surprise” visits to locations throughout the U.S.

The first lady tweeted that she had a “wonderful visit” at the medical center.

She also thanked “the many dedicated service members & medical staff who take such good care of our men & women in uniform.”
