[Two customers are standing in front of a display, contemplating the attached “Everything Orange Must Go” sign.]
Customer 1: “What’s wrong with orange?”
Me: “We’re celebrating the election.”
Customer 1: “I don’t get it.”
Me: “The very orange person currently holding office is no longer going to be president. To mark the occasion, we’ve put discounts on all of our orange merchandise.”
Customer 2: “He means Trump.”
Customer 1: “YES, I UNDERSTAND THE VERY BAD JOKE.”
And then he stormed out, muttering, “Y’all are gonna be upset [grumble grumble] second term [grumble grumble] voter fraud [grumble grumble] stop the steal [grumble grumble]…” with Customer 2 trailing meekly behind him.
Humor is always subjective, of course, but I submit that it if it sends a gay Republican into a fit of fuming rage, it is in fact a very good joke. And I, for one, am very proud of myself for coming up with it.
