Happy Presidential Joke Day!

11 Aug

This day is almost as old as I am!  Here’s the story behind it:

On August 11, 1984, just before his regular Saturday radio address, President
Ronald Reagan was doing a voice test with the microphone. He thought the
microphone and the feed was not live. He joked into the microphone: “My fellow
Americans, I am pleased to tell you I just signed legislation which outlaws
Russia forever. The bombing begins in five minutes.” To his surprise, he was
speaking to a live feed! http://www.holidayinsights.com/moreholidays/August/presidentialjoke.htm

Got any good presidential jokes?  I’m sure there are tons out there.

Especially with the current state of political affairs, celebrate Presidential Joke Day early and often.
