What do You Get if You Cross an Elephant with a Donkey?


There is an old joke that goes something like this:


Man 1: What do you get if you cross an elephant with a rhino?

Man 2: Hell if I know.

Man 1: That’s right!


The irony in that joke is that the second man didn’t know the answer (Elephino) but, the first man mistakenly thought he did.


I can’t think of a better analogy for the state of the political system in United States today. Let me rephrase the joke to illustrate what I mean:


Man 1: What do you get if you cross an elephant with a donkey?

Man 2: Hell if I know.

Man 1: That’s right!


As above, the second man didn’t know the answer, but the first man mistakenly thought he did.


OK, the second joke isn’t as funny as the first one, but it illustrates my point – there is virtually no discernable difference between a Republican and a Democrat anymore, and only God knows what you’d get if you crossed the two.


I certainly don’t know the answer, but my guess is you would get the worst traits of both, a sort of super-spreader of bad ideas. As far as what to call “it” (in bowing to Nancy Pelosi’s wokeness, I chose to use a gender-neutral pronoun), there are several possibilities.


Obviously, we could call it a Republicrat or a Democan, but neither seems to accurately reflect what such a monstrosity would be. I prefer a shorter version of the latter – Demon – as I think it truly and accurately describes what such a horrid creature would be.


Regardless of what we call it, there seems to be a profusion of cross-breeding between Democrats and Republicans, resulting in a horde of these Demons in both houses of Congress, ready to unleash a pandemic of bad legislation upon the American people.


And masks and lockdowns won’t save us from the ravages of this pandemic.


So how do We the People fight this pandemic. I don’t have specific answers for that, but we had better figure it out sooner rather than later, or it will turn into another bad joke to which the answer is:


Hell if I know!
