I'm reading into Stop Me If You've Heard This: A History and Philosophy of Jokesand I have been amused for at least ten minutes.  I was reminded of Ronald Reagan's definition of liberalism:"If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. If it stops moving, subsidize it."  Or this, about West Virginia: "What do a hurricane and a divorce in West Virginia have in common? Somebody's gonna lose a trailer."  There are more, but I practice self control.  OK, maybe not; just one more: "A woman gets into a cab and says, where can I get scrod?  The cabbie says, Gee, I've never heard it put in the pluperfect subjunctive before!"

When a Unitarian is angry at you he burns a question mark on your lawn.

UU bumper sticker: Nuclear war would be the end of brunch as we know it.

Those are actually pretty good (with the exception of the Reagan one, of course).

Steve - What am I missing with the 2nd UU joke?

A kind of lifestyle producing a lack of a sense of proportion. Some versions use geography: bumper sticker seen in Sausalito. . .


Somebody once wrote up a great list of provincial newspaper headlines for a nuclear war:

Washington Post: "Republicans' Triumph Short-Lived as World Ends"

New York Times: "Turmoil in Middle East as World Ends"

Boston Globe: "Hub Man Dies in Nuclear Holocaust"

San Francisco Chronicle: "Bay Area Lifestyles Decline as World Ends"

USA Today: "We're Dead"
