And Jay Commie did entertain the Palace Press Corps with many jokes, such as , "Terrorist attacks are caused by movies," and "There is no credible evidence that NSA is spying on our own citizens," and "The IRS is simply doing its job of preventing tax fraud," and one of his favorites, "The king did not know until yesterday what was going on."
And the Palace Press Corps did frequently smile at Jay Commie, but they very seldom laughed, for his jokes were not funny.
And Jay Commie, prior to his daily routine, would hand out to the Palace Press Corps a written copy of his jokes for the day. This was in case any of the reporters were too dense to understand his jokes and might fail to convey them accurately to the people. But in truth, Jay Commie's jokes were so insipid that they were quickly forgotten – by both the Press Corps and the people – unless they were written down.
And Jay Commie was an avid Communist, and he did decorate the walls of his apartment with old Soviet posters, apparently in the belief that Communism was the wave of the future. And he did marry a good Communist girl named Claire Strychnine and they did raise two Communist children. And this did not cause any concern among the members of the Palace Press Corps, for they knew full well that the king himself was a Communist.
And it came to pass that the king did make such a large number of stupid mistakes that Jay Commie's jokes could no longer cover the king's derriere. And as Jay Commie tried harder and harder to think of jokes to cover up the king's idiocies, his jokes got worse and worse.
And so it came to pass that Jay Commie was fired and that the king did appoint a new jester whose oxymoronic name was Josh Earnest. And thus it was that no one could tell for sure if the king's jester was in earnest or was joshing.
And the people reacted with resounding indifference, for they had long ago stopped listening to the tired jokes of the king's jester.
