A Meeting in an Iron Curtain Country


At a meeting in an Iron Curtain country, a Party member, Comrade Dobrinsky, got up from his seat and said, “Comrade Leader, I have only three questions to ask. If we are the greatest industrial nation in the world, what has happened to our automobiles? If we have the best agriculture in the world, what has happened to our bread? If we are the finest cattle raisers in the world, what has happened to our meat?”

The Party chairman stared at Comrade Dobrinsky for a moment, then declared, “It is too late to reply to your questions tonight. I will answer them at our next meeting.”

When the meeting opened the following week, another Party member rose and said, “I have just one question. What happened to Comrade Dobrinsky?”
