January 2017.

This joke made the rounds a few years ago, and seems worthy of dusting off now:

One sunny day in January 2017, an old man approaches the White House from across Pennsylvania Avenue where he’d been sitting on a park bench. He speaks to the U.S. Marine standing guard and says, “I would like to go in and meet with President Obama.”

The Marine looks at the man and says, “Sir, Mr. Obama is no longer President and no longer resides here.”  The old man says, “Okay,” and walks away.

The following day the same man approaches the White House and says to the same Marine, “I would like to go in and meet with President Obama.”

The Marine again tells the man, “Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Obama is no longer President and no longer resides here.” The man thanks him and again just walks away.

The third day the same man approaches the White House and speaks to the very same U.S. Marine, saying, “I would like to go in and meet with President Obama.”

The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looks at the man and says, “Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to Mr. Obama. I’ve told you already that Mr. Obama is no longer the President and no longer resides here. Don’t you understand?”

The old man looks at the Marine and says, “Oh, I understand. I just love hearing it.”

The Marine snaps to attention, salutes, and says, “See you tomorrow, Sir!”

    Hey Dal, nothing relevant to the post here, just in a good mood saying hey and thanks. Something I noticed a long time ago is that when I just type DALROCK the search shows “Dalrock Foundation Repair” and in a sense this is exactly what you are doing. Cool.

    Everyone in your joke is a man, you sexist.

  4. Somehow it’s also good to know that his wife, and her unabashed, overt misandry, will also soon be absent:

    “Women are smarter than men”:

    “Men, be better.”


    Identity politics will continue to plague the country, but it won’t receive any oxygen from the residents of the White House.

    Old joke… still good.

    Yes, but before videocams in phones. The man could make a video with the Marine, and then loop it into 100 continuous repeats in one go. That would be far more efficient.

    Plus, with the Marine’s consent, it can be on YouTube for more to enjoy.

    Never heard it before. Liked it. Shared it.

    Would that old man be one of those who used to live rough on the other side of Pennsylvania Avenue and thus opposite the White House? I always thought that a very bad advertisement for your country. I understand they have now, for security purposes, re-routed the buses – when I was there I had the pleasure each Monday morning of passing by The White House on the way to work – and frankly one could have thrown had one been so inclined a cricket ball from the pavement [sidewalk] such that it would have hit a window of The White House. Great joke by-the-way.

    As anyone who has ever spent any great length of time in the place would tell you, anybody who would visit Washington, D.C. voluntarily (i.e., in a non-work capacity), or who would LIVE in the place thoroughly deserves the experience they’ll suffer. While what has taken place there over the last 15 years in terms of the metastasis of the dystopian security state would be tragic in any other city (e.g., New York, which yours truly also despises, having grown up in its shadow), it’s par for the course in the imperial capital. Quite frankly, I can’t think of any other city in North America whose denizens deserve to be made even miserable than they already are. If the English language contains a description more apt than “shit hole” to describe such a place, I have not seen it.

    When I last heard this one it was about Buddy Rich. I like this version better 🙂
