Obama And Biden Discuss Tragedy

The Barack Obama and Joe Biden, while on the campaign trail, visited a primary school class which was in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings. The teacher asked both men if they would like to lead the discussion of the word ‘tragedy’. So the illustrious Barack Obama asked the class for an example of a ‘tragedy’.

One little boy stood up and offered: ‘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.’
No,’ says the Great Obama, ‘that would be an accident.’

A little girl raised her hand: ‘If a school bus carrying 50 children drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy.’ I’m afraid not,’ explained Joe Biden.
‘That’s what we would call a great loss. ‘

The room went silent. No other children volunteered.  Barack Obama searched the room. ‘Isn’t there someone here who can give us an example of a tragedy?’

Finally at the back of the room little Johnny raised his hand. In a stern voice he says: ‘If a plane carrying Barack Obama and Joe Biden were struck by a missile and blown to smithereens that would be a tragedy.’

Fantastic!’ exclaimed Obama and Biden in unison, ‘That’s right. And can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?’

‘Well,’ says little Johnny, ‘because it sure as heck wouldn’t be a great loss, and it probably wouldn’t be an accident either’.

    I don’t do a whole lot of jokes. But whenever I come across one that makes me laugh, I try to pass it along…

    Glad you enjoyed it.

    HAHA! OK, that was really funny. Very clever. I was expecting something about money or people making money being the ‘tragedy’ – but little Johnny’s response was hilarious.

    Gonna be more and more people wishing Air Force One went down while Obama, Biden, and Pelosi are on it.
