Friday Funny: Popular Russian Joke

By Eowyn @DrEowyn

Barack Obama dies.

10 years later, he gets bored in Hell and asks Satan to let him go down to earth and see how America is doing. Satan lets him go, but accompanied by a low-ranking demon who has Obama on a short leash.

Obama goes to New York and enters a bar, orders a beer and asks the bartender how the country is doing, how it is developing and what problems it is solving.

Surprised, the bartender says: “What problems could there be? We’re a great empire, everything around us is ours.”

Obama asks: “Whattaya mean ours? Even Irak and Afghanistan?”

“Yep, it’s all ours!”

“Even Europe, Africa, the Middle East?”

The bartender reaches under the counter, pulls out a globe and proudly spins it. With a big grin, he says: “I’m telling you, we’re an empire, the whole world belongs to us!”

Obama beams proudly, looking self-satisfied. His demon yanks the leash, barking: “Your time is up. We must return to Hell.”

So Obama finishes his beer and says to the bartender: ” Well, thanks, buddy! How much do I owe you?”

Bartender: “One ruble and 20 kopecks.”

H/t Don Hank for translating the Russian joke into English. The original Russian joke had Obama in heaven, which we all know is patently absurd. ;)
