Pick your favourite villain


One afternoon, a (lawyer, Republican, banker) was riding in his limousine when he saw two men along the road-side eating grass.
Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and got out to investigate.
He asked one man, "Why are you eating grass?"
"We don't have any money for food," the poor man replied. "We have to eat grass."
"Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I'll feed you," the (lawyer, Republican, banker) said.
"But sir, I have a wife and two children with me. They are over there, under that tree."
"Bring them along," the (lawyer, Republican, banker) replied.
Turning to the other poor man he stated, "You may come with us, also."
The second man, in a pitiful voice, then said, "But sir, I also have a wife and six children with me!"
"Bring them all as well," the (lawyer, Republican, banker)  answered.
They all entered the car, which was no easy task, even for a car as large as the limousine.
Once under way, one of the poor fellows turned to the (lawyer, Republican, banker)  and said, "Sir, you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you.
The (lawyer, Republican, banker) replied, "Glad to do it. You'll really love my place. The grass is almost a foot high."

  1. Canadians can substitute Conservative for Republican, though it is getting harder to tell them apart.

  3. Yes, um, well. I suppose it depends on what kind of grass.

  4. Definition of a "Compassionate Conservative(Repub)" is someone who leaves the lid open on the dumpster so the poor can eat!!

  5. That would be funny if it wasn't so true.

    Seriously considering that move to Canada. The NDP needs more recruits.

    1. The NDP sure could use more recruits. I just hope there is something left of the country by the next election.
