    Talking Good ol Johnny

    JOKE OF THE DAY:

    Donald Trump was visiting a primary school in Orlando and visited a 4th grade class. They were in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings.

    The teacher asked Mr.Trump if he would like to lead the discussion on the word 'tragedy.'

    So our illustrious POTUS asked 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 tractor runs him over and kills him, that would be a tragedy."

    "No," said Trump, "that would be an accident."
    A little girl raised her hand: "If a school bus carrying 50 children drove off a cliff, killing everyone, that would be a tragedy."

    "I'm afraid not," explained Trump. "That's what we would call great loss."

    The room went silent. No other child volunteered. Trump searched the room.

    "Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?"

    Finally at the back of the room, Little Johnny raised his hand. The teacher held her breath.

    In a quiet voice he said: "If the plane carrying you was struck by a 'friendly fire' missile and blown to smithereens that would be a tragedy."

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

    "Well," says Johnny, "It has to be a tragedy, because it sure as hell wouldn't be a great loss... and you can bet your sweet ass it wouldn't be an accident either!"

    The teacher left the room..

    Accurate, yep.
    But, you must admit it's hardly believable in any sort of story.
    Entropy is not what
    it used to be.

    Poor Mr Trump. I do believe that little Johnny summed things up very well.

    Poor Mr.T is definitely a victim of online bullying

    Is there somewhere that he can report all the online bullying & abuse

    That is a very old joke albeit a funny one. I remember reading it with Helen Clark as the star of the story.
