Fw: Illinois Student

A young student in Illinois attended the state University. Half way through the semester, he foolishly squandered all of his money.

He calls home. "Dad," he says, "You won't believe what modern education is developing! They actually have a program here in Champaign that will teach our dog, Bo, how to talk!"

"That's amazing," his Dad says. "How do I get Bo in that program?"

"Just send him down here with $1,000" the young man says. "I'll get him in the course."

So, his father sends the dog and $1,000.

About two-thirds of the way through the semester, the money again runs out. The boy calls home.

"So how's Bo doing son?" his father asks. "Awesome, Dad, he's talking up a storm," he says, "but you just won't believe this - they've had such good results they also have started to teach dogs how to read!"

"Read!?" says his father, "No kidding! How do we get Bo in that program?"

"Just send $2,500, I'll get him in the class."

The money promptly arrives. But our hero has a problem. At the end of the year his father will find out the dog can neither talk, nor read.

When he arrives home at the end of the year, his father is all excited. "Where's Bo? I just can't wait to see him read something and talk!"

"Dad," the boy says, "I have some grim news. Yesterday morning, just before we left to drive home, Bo was in the living room, kicked back in the recliner, reading the Wall Street Journal, like he usually does. Then he turned to me and asked, "So, is your dad still messin' around with that little redhead who lives in town?"

The father exclaimed, "I hope you shot that &*%$# before he talks to your Mother!"

"I sure did, Dad!"

"That's my boy!"

The kid would become a successful lawyer; he then went on to become the
Governor of Illinois ..

Considering the first time I heard that joke it was about someone buying his girlfriend an abortion, I'm surprised the original writer went with the Blagojevich angle instead.

The Blago angle is, uh, like something that's pasted on at the end of the joke as an afterthought.

Per usual: right wing humor: stupid, dull & nonsensical.

Oh well... don't really care that much for Blago, but this really doesn't make much sense, nor is it funny.
