    I am sorry if this is a repost but I thought this joke was good so I am posting it here.


    The Reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, while visiting a primary
    school class, found themselves in the middle of a discussion related to
    words and their meanings.

    The teacher asked both men if they would like to lead the discussion of
    the word "tragedy". So the illustrious Rev Jackson asks the class for
    an example of a "tragedy".

    One little boy stood up and offered: "If my best friend, who lives on a
    farm, is playing in the field and a runaway tractor comes along and
    knocks him dead, that would be a tragedy."

    No," says the Great Jesse Jackson, "that would be an accident."

    A little girl raised her hand: "If a school bus carrying 50 children
    drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy."

    I'm afraid not," explains the exalted Reverend Al. "That's what we
    would call a great loss." The room goes silent. No other children

    Reverend Al searches the room. "Isn't there someone here who can give
    me an example of a tragedy?"

    Finally at the back of the room little Johnny raises his hand. In a
    stern voice he says: "If a plane carrying the Reverends Jackson and
    Sharpton were struck by a missile and blown to smithereens that would
    be a tragedy."

    Fantastic!" exclaims Jackson and Sharpton, "That's right. And can you
    tell me why that would be a tragedy?"

    "Well," says little Johnny, "because it sure as hell wouldn't be a
    great loss, and it probably wouldn't be an accident either."
