Communism jokes are not funny unless everyone gets them, comrade.

Her sharing herself equally with everyone would have been a red flag.
Her graduating high school on the “five year plan” would have been another.

A large group of ISIS soldiers are moving down a road when they hear a voice call from behind a sand-dune. "One Marine is better than ten ISIS fighters". The ISIS commander quickly sends 10 of his best soldiers over the dune whereupon a gun-battle breaks out and continues for a few minutes, then silence.

The voice then calls out "One Marine is better than one hundred ISIS fighters". Furious, the ISIS commander sends his next best 100 troops over the dune and instantly a huge gun fight commences, after 10 minutes of battle, again silence.

The voice calls out again "One Marine is better than one thousand ISIS fighters". The enraged ISIS Commander musters one thousand fighters and sends them across the dune. Cannon, rocket and machine gun fire ring out as a huge battle is fought, then silence.

Eventually one wounded ISIS fighter crawls back over the dune and with his dying words tells his commander, "Don't send any more men, its a trap, there’s two of them!

A woman and her 12-year-old son were riding in a taxi in Detroit . It

was raining and all the prostitutes were standing under awnings.

"Mom," said the boy, "what are all those women doing?"

"They're waiting for their husbands to get off work," she replied.

The taxi driver turns around and says, "Geez lady, why don't you tell

him the truth? They're hookers, boy! They have sex with men for

money."

The little boy's eyes get wide and he says, "Is that true Mom?"

His mother, glaring hard at the driver, answers "Yes."

After a few minutes the kid asks, "Mom, if those women have babies,

what happens to them?"

She said, "Most of them become taxi drivers."

Shamus and Murphy fancied a pint or two but didn't have a lot of money between them; they could only raise the staggering sum of one Euro.

Murphy said “Hang on, I have an idea.”

He went next door to the butcher's shop and came out with one large sausage.

Shamus said “Are you crazy? Now we don't have any money at all!”

Murphy replied, “Don't worry - just follow me.”

He went into the pub where he immediately ordered two pints of Guinness and two glasses of Jamieson Whisky.

Shamus said “Now you've lost it. Do you know how much trouble we will be in? We haven't got any money!!”

Murphy replied, with a smile. “Don't worry; I have a plan, Cheers!”

They downed their Drinks. Murphy said, “OK, I'll stick the sausage through my zipper and you go on your knees and put it in your mouth.”

The barman noticed them, went berserk, and threw them out.

They continued this, pub after pub, getting more and more drunk, all for free.

At the tenth pub Shamus said “Murphy - I don't think I can do any more of this. I'm drunk and me knees are killing me!”

Murphy said, “How do you think I feel? I can't even remember which pub I lost the sausage in.”
