Surprising Joke

I recently attended a workshop.  Pretty exciting I know!  Well after the introductions the first speaker got up and opened his talk with the following joke:

President Obama was visiting Queen Elizabeth.  As they were talking Obama asked her how she selects good people.  The Queen stated that she tests them to make sure that they are intelligent and promptly summoned Tony Blair to her office.  She gave Mr. Blair a quiz;  “if your mother and father had a child and it was not your brother or your sister who would it be?”  Tony Blair thought for a minute and answered, “it’s me!” the Queen smiled and Mr. Blair left them alone.  President Obama seemed impressed.

Stockholm Syndrome

I was recently watching one of my favorite shows, Always Sunny In Philadelphia. In one episode the main characters were held hostage by some local bullies and one of the hostages talked about Stockholm Syndrome and even began to exhibit symptoms. Stockholm Syndrome is where hostages who have been held for a long time begin to share the values and beliefs of those who are holding them captive. I have a very healthy disrespect for the main-stream media as water-carriers for the Democrats and liberal causes, but I have begun to feel sorry for them. I do believe that they may actually have Stockholm Syndrome.
