A little boy goes to his father one day and says, "Daddy, what is politics?"

"Well," his father replied, "let me try to explain it to you this way. Let's say that you're the people. I'm the breadwinner of the family so we'll call me the economy. Your mother is in charge so we'll call her government. Your nanny will be the working class, and your baby brother is the future. Now go think about that and see if you can understand."

The boy thinks about it but doesn't really get it so he goes to bed. He wakes up in the middle of the night and hears his baby brother crying. He goes to check on his brother and sees that he has soiled himself but doesn't know how to change a diaper. He goes to his parents' room to wake them up, but only his mother is there, snoring loudly. He goes to the nanny's room instead and finds the door locked. When he looks through the keyhole, he sees his father in bed with the nanny. Frustrated, he just goes back to bed.

In the morning, the boy goes to his father and says, "I think I understand politics now."

"Good," says the father. "Let's see what you've come up with."

"Well," says the boy, "While the economy is screwing the working class, the government is fast asleep, the people are being ignored, and the future is in deep shit."

Instead of just saying "dupe" would you please either report it or give me the number for the original? I searched for this before I submitted it and after you said it was a dupe and still can't find another like it.

Not funny, necessarily, but sure a good anecdote for what real life is like.
