A Little Soviet Humor

A bit of distraction from the recent unpleasant developments.

Lenin is dying, and talking things over with Stalin, his successor.

'The one worry I have,' says Lenin, 'is this: will the people follow you? What do you think, comrade Stalin?'

'They will,' says Stalin, 'they surely will.'

'I hope so,' says Lenin, 'but what if they don't follow you?'

'No problem,' says Stalin, 'then they'll follow you.'"
