Tragedy
e-mail | 9/18/05 | unknown

Jesse Jackson, while visiting a primary school class, found himself in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings. The teacher asks the Rev. Jackson if he would like to lead the discussion on the word "tragedy". So the illustrious leader asks the class for an example of a "tragedy".

One little boy stood up and offered: "If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a runaway tractor comes along and knocks him dead, that would be a tragedy."

"No," says the Great Jesse Jackson, "that would be an accident."

A little girl raised her hand: "If a school bus carrying 50 children drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy."

"I'm afraid not," explains the exalted spiritual leader. "That's what we would call a great loss."

The room goes silent. No other children volunteer. Rev. Jackson searches the room. "Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?"

Finally at the back of the room a small boy raises his hand. In a quiet voice he says: "If a plane carrying the Rev. Jackson were struck by a missile and blown to smithereens that would be a tragedy."

"Fantastic!" exclaims Jackson, "That's right. And can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?"

"Well," says the boy, "because it sure as hell wouldn't be a great loss, and it probably wouldn't be an accident either."

"Tragedy
When the feeling’s gone and you can’t go on It’s tragedy
When the morning cries and you don’t know why It’s hard to bear
With no-one to love you you’re Goin’ nowhere
Tragedy
When you lose control and you got no soul It’s tragedy
When the morning cries and you don’t know why It’s hard to bear
With no-one to love you you’re Goin’ nowhere

Now you can all swear at me as that tune from the Bee Gees keeps going through your heads.

While I did laugh, you realize, you could put anybody's name in for Jackson. Before I got to the punch line I kept saying to myself, Jesse would never be at a Primary school talking to students unless there had been some tragedy there and alot of cameras.

Substitute [pick your target] for "Jesse Jackson" and this, like almost any joke, is instantly a "Mad-Lib" like game.

Same goes for ethnic jokes. Take any ethnic joke you can think of and it is almost always possible to switch groups and not affect the joke in the slightest. You want proof? Look up Aggie Jokes. You can substitute almost any group you want to take a shot at and the joke still works, as is.
