Little Boy Asks His Dad What Politics Is and the Explanation Is Hilarious

In today’s joke of the day, a young boy used their family’s situation at home to explain how politics works by using a hilarious metaphor.


With the presidential election coming up next year, politics headline more than usual. Little Johnny, having just watched the news with his dad and not knowing what politics is, decided to find out. “Dad, what is politics?”

Johnny’s dad, Brad, took a moment to think his responsive over and said, “Well, son, let me try and explain it this way.”

After a quick sip of beer, Brad launched into his explanation. “I'm the breadwinner of the family, so let's call me Capitalism. Mommy is the administrator of the money, so we'll call her the Government. We're here to take care of your needs, so we'll call you The People.”

Brad paused for another sip of beer and continued, “The nanny, well, consider her The Working Class. Your baby brother, we'll call him The Future. Now go think about this and see if it makes sense."


With his father’s words rummaging around in his head, Johnny went to bed. A few hours later, his baby brother, Kyle’s crying, woke him up.

When Kyle didn’t stop crying, Johnny hopped out of bed and went to the nursery. Kyle’s diaper was very soiled, so he decided to get some help.

In his parents' room, Johnny found his mum fast asleep and decided not to wake her, since his father appeared to be up already as he was not in bed.

While looking for his father, he passed the nanny’s room and thought she might be awake. Her door was locked, so curiosity got the better of him. With his eye to the peephole, he understood why the door was locked as he saw his father in bed with the nanny.

Having forgotten about the whole diaper issue, Johnny went back to bed. The following morning at the breakfast table, Johnny said, "Dad, I think I understand what politics is now."

Brad looked up from his newspaper and replied, "Good son, tell me in your own words then what politics are."

“Well,” Johnny replied as he dug a spoon into his cereal bowl. “While Capitalism is screwing the Working Class, the Government is sound asleep, the People are being ignored, and the Future is in deep s**t."

While there is always room for another giggle, the joke about a Pope’s surprise discovery after going to heaven is sure to keep them coming.
