A Tourist walked into a Chinese curio shop in San Francisco.

While looking around at the exotic merchandise, he noticed a very life like, life-sized, bronze statue of a rat. It had no price tag, but was so incredibly striking the tourist decided he must have it. He took it to the old shop owner and asked, "How much for the bronze rat?"

> "Ahhh, you have chosen wisely! It is $12 for the rat and $100 for the story," said the wise old Chinaman.
>
> The tourist quickly pulled out twelve dollars. "I'll just take the rat, you can keep the story".
>
> As he walked down the street carrying his bronze rat, the tourist noticed that a few real rats had crawled out of the alleys and sewers and had begun following him down the street. This was a bit disconcerting so he began walking faster.
>
> A couple blocks later he looked behind him and saw to his horror the herd of rats behind him had grown to hundreds, and they began squealing.
> Sweating now, the tourist began to trot toward San Francisco Bay . Again, after a couple blocks, he looked around only to discover that the rats now numbered in the MILLIONS, and were squealing and coming toward him faster and faster.
>
> Terrified, he ran to the edge of the Bay and threw the bronze rat as far as he could into the Bay.
>
> Amazingly, the millions of rats all jumped into the Bay after the bronze rat and were all drowned. The man walked back to the curio shop in Chinatown .
>
> "Ahhh," said the owner, "You come back for story ?"
>
> "No sir," said the man, "I came back to see if you have a bronze Democrat."

"No sir," said the man, "I came back to see if you have a bronze Democrat."

Hate against a class of humans is wrong.

The fact that people have a choice to be Democrat or not does soften the blow as it is not hate against a class of people for which they have no control (like skin color or nation of origin). However it does suggest that taking action resulting in the death of a million Democrats would be a desirable, something even worth paying for.

No wonder there will be no progress as long as people like you have an influence on the GOP.

It makes me wonder, who would the GOP hate if they succede in getting rid of Democrats?

Does a being this devoid of a sense of humor qualify as human?

Let's not pretend that the opposite isn't true.

Each other. The different wings of the GOP are already at each other's throats.

I get the joke. I had heard it years ago.

Even before I got to the punch line I was wondering who it would be picking on. I figured no one would tell it in the original form using the N word.

I think the definition of "sense of humor" sometimes depends on whose ox is getting gored.

Old joke:

What do you call 10,000 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean?

ans: a good start

Definition of a damn shame:

A busload of democrats fell off of a cliff and there were two empty seats.


Some folks just can't laugh at themselves.

No discussion with liberals can be considered complete until they play the race card.

Hispanics, blacks, browns, women who use birth control, gays, lesbians, the 99%, anyone who can't trace their ancestry back to the American Revolution...
