Joke of the Week: 'In the land of the Midgets...'
Once upon a time, in the land of the Midgets, there lived three midgets, Winken, Blinken and Nod.
One fine day, Winken, Blinken and Nod were strolling down the main street in the Land of the Midgets and noticed a new office building with a sign that stated 'Guiness Book of World Records, Land of the Midget Branch'. Curious, they went inside and began a conversation with the clerk at the window.
After introductions, the clerk, well versed in all things regarding world records, was asked by Winken if indeed he himself, Winken the Midget, was still listed in his latest volume of the Guinness Book of World Records as having the world's smallest hands. The clerk thumbed through the pages and verified that indeed Winken was listed as the world record holder as having the worlds' smallest hands.
'Woo hoo,' shrieked Winken. And high fives were given to each Blinken and Nod. After the celebration among the midgets had somewhat subsided, Blinken stepped up and asked the clerk if he was still the world record holder as having the world's smallest feet. The clerk dutifully searched the volume of Guinness Book of World Records and subsequently Blinken was informed that he was still listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as having the world's smallest feet.
'Woo hoo,' cried Blinken, and a round of high fives began anew. After a few moments, Nod stepped up and quietly whispered to the clerk to check and see if he was still the world record holder as having the smallest brain. Since this was something Nod was not particularly proud of, he tried to hush the conversation as much as possible. Agreeing to Nod's wishes, the clerk checked the book to see if Nod was listed as the record holder with the world's tiniest brain. After several minutes, the clerk whispered into Nod's ear his findings, and Nod seemed subdued at the information.
All three midgets left the office, and Winken and Blinken were persistent in finding out what the clerk has whispered to a now despondent Nod. 'Tell us, Nod, did your name get listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as having the world's smallest brain? Please tell us, Nod, pretty please.'
After a moment, Nod indignantly blurted out 'who the hell is Barack Hussein Obama?'
