Hillary Clinton is not a joke, especially now that Geraldine Ferraro has been booted from the campaign for her assinine remarks. But Hill’s been the SUBJECT of jokes, which is why Robert Myers had no problem filling 84 pages with all those setups and rimshots for his new book The Humor About Hillary (OutskirtsPress.com). Meyers tells me that Hillary’s camp has tried to suppress the book’s publication (as if they have nothing better to do). Well, I’ll give you a few of the rip-roaring jokes you get in this esteemed tome and you can decide if they wanted to stop it because it’s offensive or it just ain’t the least bit funny.
“How many Hillary Clintons does it take to screw in a lightbulb?” “One. She holds the bulb and the world revolves around her.”
“What do you get if you cross Hillary with a gorilla?” “Nothing. There are some things even a gorilla won’t do.”
“Why did Chelsea Clinton grow up confused?” “Because her father couldn’t keep his pants on and her mother wanted to wear them.”
Oy. Ha! Yuck! Bravo! Boo! Waa! Bring back Ferraro. Now THAT was funny!
