A teacher in Elmira, New York, who is an Obama supporter, asked her 4th grade class, ‘How many of you are Obama fans?’
Not really knowing what an Obama fan is, but wanting to be liked by the teacher, all the kids raised their hands, except for Little Johnny.
The teacher asked Little Johnny why he has decided to be different? Little Johnny said, ‘Because I’m not an Obama fan.’
The teacher asked, ‘Why aren’t you an Obama fan?’ Johnny said, ‘Because I’m a Republican.’ The teacher asked him why he’s a Republican.
Little Johnny answered, ‘Well, my Mom’s a Republican and my Dad’s a Republican, so I’m a Republican.’
Annoyed by this answer, the teacher asked, ‘If your mom was a moron and your dad was an idiot, what would that make you?’ With a big smile, Little Johnny replied,
‘That…would make me an Obama fan.’

One day a husband and wife were living peacefully in their cabin after more than twenty years of marriage. Suddenly a ravenous bear breaks into the cabin. The husband tells the wife to go to the corner while he fights the bear. The husband and bear go to it tooth, claw and Bowie knife. The carnage is terrible.
The wife, looking on from the corner, shouts out, “Go to it, husband!” Then she thinks for a second and shouts out, “Go to it, bear!”

A preacher was walking down the street when he came upon a group of about a dozen boys, all of them between 10 and 12 years of age.
The group surrounded a dog.
Concerned lest the boys were hurting the dog, he went over and asked, “What are you doing with that dog?”
One of the boys replied, “This dog is just an old neighborhood stray. We all want him, but only one of us can take him home. So we’ve decided that whichever one of us can tell the biggest lie will get to keep the dog.”
Of course, the reverend was shocked. “You boys shouldn’t be having a contest telling lies!” he exclaimed.
He then launched into a ten minute sermon against lying, beginning, “Don’t you boys know it’s a sin to lie,” and ending with, “Why when I was your age, I never told a lie.”
There was dead silence for about a minute. Just as the preacher was beginning to think he’d gotten through to them, the smallest boy gave a deep sigh and said, “All right, give him the dog.”
