At Moscow airport, customs found a Lenin statue in his baggage and asked, "What is this?"
The man replied, "What is this? Wrong question comrade. You should have asked: Who is he? This is Comrade Lenin. He laid the foundations of socialism and created the future and prosperity of the Russian people. I am taking it with me as a memory of our dear hero."
The Russian customs officer let him go without further inspection.
At Tel Aviv airport, the Israeli customs officer also asked our friend, "What is this?"
He replied, "What is this? Wrong question, Sir. You should be asking, 'Who is this?' This is Lenin, the bastard who caused me, a Jew, to leave Russia. I take this statue with me so I can curse him every day."
The Israeli customs officer said, "I apologize, Sir, you are cleared to go."
Settling into his new house, he put the statue on a table.
To celebrate his immigration, he invited his friends and relatives to dinner.
One of his friends asked, "Who is this?"
He replied, "My dear friend, 'Who is this' is a wrong question. You should have asked, What is this? This is ten kilograms of solid gold that I managed to bring with me without paying any customs duty and tax."
Politics is when you can tell the same stuff in different ways to fool different audiences, to allow you to look good in every way.
Is it just me or is 63 not as old as it used to be? I was thinking this the other day. I swear that when I was younger, people in their sixties looked and acted like they were about to drop dead, but for every year that it gets closer for me, people in their sixties don't look or act as I remember them. Is it a phenomenon similar to time appearing to speed up as you get older? Are people really looking and acting younger than they used to? Or is it a mind trick our brains play on us to give us some sort of comfort as we edge towards old age ourselves?Chad Sexington wrote: ↑Tue Jan 05, 2021 7:28 pmYou just watched 63 year old former punk singer Toyah Willcox and her husband, King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp cutting loose in their kitchen during lockdown.
Thanks for that. I had no idea who they were, just thought it was a weird video.Chad Sexington wrote: ↑Tue Jan 05, 2021 7:28 pmYou just watched 63 year old former punk singer Toyah Willcox and her husband, King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp cutting loose in their kitchen during lockdown.
The first time I watched it, I had the volume off. The looks on the guy's face looking at her dancing was priceless.
