Have a nice day , mom. At a recent convention addressed by a spiritulalist the audience are asked "Is there anyone here who has ever seen a ghost?" A small forest of hands go up, and over the next hour they share their experiences. As they are winding up the spiritualist light-heartedly asks, "Is there anyone here who has ever made love to a ghost?" A small elderly man near the back puts his hand up. Incredulous, the spiritualist asks, "You've actually made love to a ghost?" "Oh, no, sorry" says the man, "I thought you said a goat!"
Which brings to mind the story Joe Slovo used to tell about the first day Fidel Castro gathered his revolutionaries together after they swept to power in Cuba. Needing to form a Government, and starting with Finance Minister, Castro asks, "Step forward if anyone amongst you is an economist." To Fidel's surprise, his old comrade Che Guevara steps forward, and is duly appointed Finance Minister. Six month's later, after the economy had plummeted into a deep depression, Che confessed to Fidel he thought he had said, "Step forward if anyone amongst you is a communist!"
