Funny Clean Political Jokes -- Washington Political Joke
A little boy wanted $100 to buy a new bike, and his mother told him to pray to God for it.
He prayed and prayed for two weeks, but nothing turned up.
Then he decided perhaps he should write God a letter requesting the $100.00.
When the postal authorities received the letter addressed to God, they opened it up and decided to send it to the President.
The President was so impressed, touched and amused that he instructed his secretary to send the little boy a check for $5.00.
He thought that this would appear to be a lot of money to a little boy.
The little boy was delighted with the $5.00 and sat down to write a thank-you letter to God, which read:
Dear God, Thank you very much for the money.
I noticed that you had to send it through Washington.
As usual, they deducted $95.00 for themselves.
