A Little Political Humor
`````` === ``````
A renowned political scholar was recently asked what finally becomes of a starving people. He responded, "That's obvious ... they will do the most immediate thing to quell their hunger ... they will eat their rulers!"
Journalists followed up: "So why haven't the Ethiopians gorged on their leaders in response to the current famine?"
The scholar was far from being nonplussed. He replied, "Ethiopians are comprised of Coptic Christians and Muslims. You all know very well that in both religions, it is expressly forbidden to eat pork!"
