OK, now the “Knock, knock” joke.
“Barack Hussein Obama.”
“Barack Hussein Obama who?”
[The “Hussein” can be omitted if necessary to improve the punch line, or for contestants who are actually members of the Obama campaign staff.]
Suggested punch lines:
[A lot of cynics out there] That depends. Is this the primary or the general election?Knock, knock … Who’s there? … Jeremiah Wright … Jeremiah Wright who? … Aw, come on, Barack, you know who I am![Several of this one] Barack who’s-sayin’-I’m-a-Muslim? Obama.[… along with this one] Barack who’s-sayin’-whatever-he-must-to-get-your-vote Obama.”Barack Hussein Obama.”
[Then, in a follow-up, this punchline for the prisoner joke:] The lifer explains: “We just don’t care for inflammatory knock-knock jokes.”Barack Hussein Obama who? Well my dear sir, perhaps 300 hours of mandatory Community Service will refresh your memory. Take him away![Some groaners, inevitably] Barack Hussein Obama’s brother, Sweet Home Al Obama. (Cue Leonard Skynnard music in background).
