A Political Joke

It all happened a fortnight ago in Lokoja. This story is between an inquisitive little boy and his Dad who is a prominent Politician in kogi State. Just read carefully:

Boy: Dad, what's politics?

Dad: Let me set an example with our family. I have all the money so we'll call me the management. Mom receives most of it so we'll call her the government. We'll call the maid the working class, you are the people, and your baby brother is the future. Do you understand now son?

Boy: I still don't understand dad.

Dad: Think about it for a while son.

That night the boy wakes up because his baby brother is crying. He goes in and finds out he's soiled his diapers. He goes to tell his mom but she's asleep he goes in to the maids room but she's in there doing the "main thing" with his dad. He bangs on the door but no one can hear him. The next day...

Son: Dad I understand politics now.

Dad: Good, explain it to me in your own words son.

Son: The management is screwing the working class while the government's fast asleep. The people are being ignored and the future is full of SHIT!

I wasn't too aghasted actually as contemporary little children are highly precocious. So please, Parents, learn to keep your secrets well from your children.
