What did I find? I found an extreme lack of "funny" jokes. I found jokes. Many were just plain dumb. Others were offensive. Overall, there were not that many to choose from.
Here are a couple that were funny and truly in the spirit of making us laugh.
Obama is so pretty that Bill Clinton wants to intern for him
Q. Why will Jay Leno vote for Barack Obama?
A. Because he's running out of George Bush jokes.
Q. Why will Bill Ayers vote for Barack Obama?
A. Bill thinks Obama's the bomb.
This one is kind-of long but got a smile out of me
The Presidential election was too close to call. Neither the Republican candidate nor the Democratic candidate had enough votes to win. There was much talk about ballot recounting, court challenges, etc., but a week-long ice fishing competition seemed the sportsmanlike way to settle things. The candidate that caught the most fish at the end of the week would win the election.
After much of back and forth discussion, it was decided that the contest take place on a remote frozen lake in northern Minnesota . There were to be no observers present, and both men were to be sent out separately on this isolated lake and return at 5 P.M. with their catch for counting and verification by a team of neutral parties.
At the end of the first day, John McCain returned to the starting line and he had ten fish. Soon, Obama returned and had no fish. Well, everyone assumed he was just having another ‘bad hair’ day or something and hopefully, he would catch up the next day.
At the end of the 2nd day John McCain came in with 20 fish and Obama came in again with none.
That evening, Harry Reid got together secretly with Obama and said, ‘Obama, I think John McCain is a low-life, cheatin’ son-of-a-gun. I want you to go out tomorrow and don’t even bother with fishing. Just spy on him and see just how he is cheating.’ The next night (after John McCain returns with 50 fish), Harry Reid said to Obama, ‘Well, tell me, how is he cheating?’
Obama replied, ‘Harry, you’re not going to believe this, but he’s cutting holes in the ice!’
That concludes the list of Barack Obama jokes that I thought met the criteria of actually being funny. Not much of a list is it? I think the late night boys and SNL need to get busy.
If you know of any please add a comment so I can extend this list. I really need some more material...
