A joke for the jokers in Government

With the recent elections still fresh in our minds, this hilarious joke I received from a friend via e-mail is rather pertinent to the two main contenders. I couldn’t resist sharing:

A woman in a hot air balloon realised she was lost.
She lowered her altitude and spotted a man below.

“I am,” replied the balloonist. “How

a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise that you have no idea how

position you were in before we met, but, somehow, now it’s my fault.”
