A Joke My Grandfather Used to Tell

The generalissimo and president-for-life of a banana republic is talking with some favored reporters from the tame press. One of them was slightly more brave, more honest, or perhaps just more stupid than the rest.

Reporter: Your Excellency, many people are curious about the way so many of your friends have become so extremely... fortunate... since the formation of your government of national salvation.

President: For friends, anything!

Reporter: And for your enemies, Excellency?

President: For enemies, the law!

The Beloved Republic
