House Colors

October 7, 2009

This is a dumb joke I heard recently that won't leave my brain until I share it with someone. So here it goes. You have to present it quickly, to not give the person you're telling it to too much time to think about it. Therefore, I ask that you read it and respond quickly. Ready?

There are five houses, a red house, a green house, a yellow house, a blue house, and a white house. The red man lives in the red house, the green man lives in the green house, the yellow man lives in the yellow house, and the blue man lives in the blue house. Who lives in the white house?

At this point the person you're telling it to says...

Um, the white man?

To which you say...

No, silly! Where have you been? A black man lives in The White House now!
