Q: What does “Dukakis” mean in Greek?
If Dukakis gets elected, then his home state will be renamed to Machusetts. The “ass” will be in Washington.
Those were great! Bumper stickers showed a man laughing his butt off with the caption: DUKAKIS for WHAT?!?!? (as in,
“You want it WHEN?”). Also “Dump The Duke”. A caller to the Jerry Williams show on WRKO Boston sang “Unelectable...” to the tune of “Unforgettable...”*
A joke from, of all people, Barney Frank:
“They want to depress the Central Artery? They should just have Mike Dukakis talk to it.” (Frank also quipped: “Depressing the Central Artery? Wouldn’t it be cheaper to raise the city?”)
*—also Howie Carr gave him the nickname Pee Wee as in Pee Wee Herman...piece that used to run on Jerry Wiliams show:
PEE WEE HERMAN: What’s the secret word for today?
(Sound effect: Woman screaming)
PEE WEE HERMAN: So when you hear the secret word...SCREAM REAL LOUD!
I thought Dukakis was Greek for Romney?
