Bedlam Humour: What are politics about?

What are politics about?
A little boy goes to his dad and asks, 'Dad, what are Politics?'

Dad says, 'Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I am the head of the family , so call me The President. Your mother is the administrator of the money, so we call her the Government. We are here to take care of your needs, so we will call you the People.'

The little boy says, 'And what about Nanny? What is she?'

'Nanny.... we will consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we will call him the Future. Now think about that and see if it makes sense.'

So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what Dad has said.

Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper. So the little boy goes to his parent's room and finds his mother asleep.

Not wanting to wake his mother, he goes to the nanny's room Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed.

The next morning, the little boy says to his father, 'Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now. '

The father says, 'That's good, son. So tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about.'

The little boy replies, 'Well the President is screwing the Working Class while the Government is sound asleep. The People are being ignored and the Future is in deep shit.'

Thanks John - I think that just about sums things up....
