flunking

From Tall Paul:

 

MY SON WAS FLUNKING OUT OF COLLEGE SO I TOLD HIM, “YOU WILL

MARRY THE GIRL I CHOOSE.”

HE SAID, “NO.” I TOLD HIM, “SHE IS BILL GATES’ DAUGHTER.
HE SAID, “YES.

I CALLED BILL GATES AND SAID,

“I WANT YOUR DAUGHTER TO MARRY MY SON.”
BILL GATES SAID, “NO.

I TOLD BILL GATES, “MY SON IS THE CEO OF THE WORLD BANK.”
BILL GATES SAID, “OK.

I CALLED THE PRESIDENT OF THE WORLD BANK AND ASKED HIM TO MAKE MY SON THE CEO.
HE SAID, “NO.

I TOLD HIM, “MY SON IS BILL GATES’ SON-IN-LAW.”
HE SAID, “OK.”

AND THAT’S EXACTLY HOW POLITICS WORKS.
And thus, began the practice of hiring morons to work in influential positions of government.
This practice remains unbroken to this day
