If you read the headline and assumed this post was about Sarah Palin and how much of a joke she is, you are wrong. For one thing, the headline doesn't read, "Joke Becomes Vice Presidential Pick." And for another thing, not all humor will focus on the election these next two days (Breaking News: All humor will focus on the election these next two days).
According to Yahoo News, jokes are becoming reality. A polish man following his GPS directions drove his car into a lake.
"The [Polish] man took a road that was closed a year ago when the area was flooded to make an artificial lake serving as a
– he ignored three road signs warning of a dead-end," Piotr Smolen,
police spokesman in Glubczyce, southern Poland, told AFP Friday.
"…His GPS told him to drive straight ahead and he did," Smolen
said, adding the driver had not been under the influence of alcohol.
Of course he wasn't under the influence of alcohol. It's not like he's Russian. He was clearly under the influence of being Polish. Get your stereotypes straight, police spokesman Piotr Smolen!
So, either this is all an elaborate hoax by the Polish people to boost their greatest import, dumb jokes about themselves, or reality has a sense of humor, a kind of racist and old-fashioned one to boot. I'm going to lay down all my chips and bet the farm that reality has a sense of humor, mainly because I'm convinced Polish people are too dumb to pull off an elaborate hoax.
So, the question stands, which jokes will become our very real future headlines?
- Local Blond Drowns After Scratch and Sniff Sticker Glued to Bottom of Pool
- A Priest, A Preacher, and A Rabbi Found Dead After Attempting Conversion of Wild Bear
- Polish Drive Follows GPS Directions Into Lake (Oops! That one already happened!)
If you think these predictions are ridiculous, chew over this. Thirty years ago, people would have laughed at the prospect of a black president. Not to be politically partisan but that's one knee-slapper we'd all like to see become a reality (Breaking News: All humor will focus on the election these next two days).
