Election humor

In honor of Super Tuesday (I don't know who won, but I hope you do by now) I have decided to assemble all my favorite election day jokes. Nothing brings a divided country together like laughter!


Someone gestures to my "I Voted" sticker. "I see you voted." They say.

"Seven times!" I reply. "It's really the process that I love."


"How'd your voting go?" Someone asks me.

"I meant to vote for Bloomberg, but I think I accidentally voted for Coronavirus instead. I got confused by the wording."


"This may be my last election." I proclaim.

"Oh, are these campaigns driving you crazy?"

"Yes. Yes they are. I think I'll probably be convinced I'm Emperor before there's another.


"You voted!"

"Yes." I respond sadly. "But what point is there in my tiny vote among all the millions of votes?" I muse. "If only there were some way for my vote to count along with those of others!"


Yes, laughter can bring this divided nation together! I'm sure that as soon as someone actually laughs at one of these jokes we will be healed.


  1. Well, I can't help with the healing, because I never got beyond a muted chuckle.

    But thanks for the help with faxing/scanning. And the book I think you might like is The absolute at large by Karel Capex. I don't know why, but while I was reading I just kept thinking it might be your sort of book. It's short.

  2. I suspect muted chuckles are my bailiwick.

    You're welcome and thank you for the suggestion. I have requested it. It looks right up my alley!


If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
