Re: The New Joke Thread

A woman goes into Wal-Mart to buy a rod and reel. She doesn't know which one to get so she just grabs one and goes over to the register. There is a Wal-Mart "associate" standing there with dark shades on.

She says, "Excuse me sir...can you tell me anything about this rod and reel?"

He says, "Ma'am I'm blind but if you will drop it on the counter I can tell you everything you need to know about it from the sound that it makes."

She didn't believe him, but dropped it on the counter anyway.

He said, "That's a 6' graphite rod with a Zebco 202 reel and 10 lb. test line...It's a good all around rod and reel and it's $20.00".

She says, "That's amazing that you can tell all that just by the sound of it dropping on the counter. I think it's what I'm looking for so I'll take it."

He walks behind the counter to the register, and in the meantime the woman breaks wind big-time.

At first she is embarrassed but then realizes that there is no way he could tell it was her...being blind he wouldn't know that she was the only person around. He rings up the sale and says, "That will be

$25.50."

She says, "But didn't you say it was $20.00?"

He says, "Yes ma'am, the rod and reel is $20.00, the duck call is $3.00, and the catfish stink bait is $2.50."

Tsk Tsk Tsk...... Kenyan?

In Kenya, "...(t)he Bantu Swahili language and English, the latter of which was inherited from colonial rule (see British Kenya), are widely spoken as lingua franca. They serve as the two official working languages."

Maybe I'm a little slow but can you explain what made you think that post was racist?

Re: The New Joke Thread

It was the original post implying messages in "Kenyan" (the Arabic or Persian script) might have emanated from the White House, being a direct slur against the nationality - and colour - of the current POTUS.

Who was born in Hawai'i, according to his birth certificate and the official records.
And last time I looked, Hawai'i was part of the USA.

Continuing the conversation implicitly supports the former racist remark.

Anything that highlights a person's racial differences in anything but a positive light is 'racist'.

Even when it's meant to be funny....

And that final comment of mine could even be considered racist.

But only by those who have PC for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Re: The New Joke Thread

Why do you jump from a questionable birth certificate to racism? What do the two have in common?

How does doubting his honesty equate to anything to do with his racial mixture?

That's the standard these days, isn't it. Don't like the man's policies? well by golly that makes you a racist!!

I'm more worried that his IQ only tested at 102. We need smarter people than that running the country.
