LESSONS IN SEX AND POLITICS
son asks his father, "What can you tell me about politics?
I have to learn about it for school tomorrow." The
father thought some and said, "OK, son, the best way
I can describe politics is to use an analogy. Let's say
that I'm a capitalist because I'm the breadwinner. Your
mother will be the government because she controls everything,
our maid will be the working class because she works for
us, you will be the people because you answer to us, and
your baby brother will be the future. Does that help any?"
The little boy said, "Well, Dad, I don't know, but
I'll think about what you said."
Later that night, after everyone had gone to bed, the little
boy was awaken by his baby brother's crying. Upon further
investigation, he found a dirty diaper. So, he went down
the hall to his parent's bedroom and found his father's

The next morning, he said to his father at the breakfast
table, "Dad, I think I understand politics much better
now." "Excellent, my boy," he answered, "What
have you learned?" The little boy thought for a minute
and said, "I learned that capitalism is screwing the
working class, government is sound asleep ignoring the people,
and the future's full of crap."
