A Politician Is Visiting A Primary School.

This Will Make You Laugh Crazy.

A politician is visiting a primary school.

In one class, he asks the students if anyone can give him an example of a “tragedy.”

One little boy stands up and offers that,

“If my best friend who lives next door is playing in the street when a car came by and ki!led him, that would be a tragedy.”

“No,” the politician says,

“That would be an ACCIDENT.”

A girl raises her hand.

“If a school bus carrying fifty children drove off a cliff, ki1ling everyone inside … that would be a tragedy.”

“I’m afraid not,” explains the politician.

“That is what we would call a GREAT LOSS.”

The room is silent; none of the other children dare volunteer.

“What?” asks the politician,

“Isn’t there anyone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?”

Finally, Little Johnny in the back raises his hand.

In a timid voice, he says:

“If an aeroplane carrying a politician was blown up by a bomb, *that* would be a tragedy.”

“Marvelous!” the politician beams.

“And can you tell me WHY that would be a tragedy?”

“Well,” says Johnny,

“because it wouldn’t be an accident, and it certainly would be no great loss!”
