Where did George Washington keep his armies?
In his sleevies, of course.
Presidential Joke Day was created in honor of an infamous joke cracked by Ronald Reagan, when as president on August 11, 1984, cracked a joke during a sound check before a Saturday radio broadcast. Reagan said, "My fellow Americans. I'm pleased to announce that I've signed legislation outlawing the Soviet Union. We begin bombing in five minutes."
Little did he know that the feed was live and news quickly made its way to the Soviets who put their military on high alert. Yikes!
In celebration of Presidential Joke Day, here are a few jokes I've glommed from others and happily share with you now...
"When they call the roll in the Senate, the Senators do not know whether to answer 'present' or 'not guilty.'" —President Teddy Roosevelt
"Being president is like running a cemetery: you've got a lot of people under you and nobody's listening." —President Bill Clinton
"These stories about my intellectual capacity really get under my skin. You know, for a while I even thought my staff believed it. There on my schedule first thing every morning it said, 'Intelligence Briefing.'" —President George W. Bush
Jimmy Kimmel to Obama: “Remember when the country rallied around you in hope for a better tomorrow? That was a good one.”
