The Editor:  Did a newspaper really print a front page without smearing Trump, LL ?

Windy City Cat:   The Chicago Sun Times did, they left it blank.   At least they didn’t have to print the murders.

WHAT AISLE IS THE POLISH SAUSAGE IN?

Everyone seems to be in such a hurry to scream ‘prejudice’ these
days…………….
 
A customer asked, “In what aisle can I find the Polish sausage?”
 
The clerk asks, “Are you Polish?”
 
The guy, clearly offended, says, “Yes I am. But let me ask you
something.
 
If I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian?
 
Or if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was
German?
 
Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish?
 
Or if I had asked for a Taco, would you ask if I was Mexican?
 
Or if I asked for some Irish whiskey, would you ask if I was Irish?”
 
The clerk says, “No, I probably wouldn’t.”
 
The guy says, “Well then, because I asked for Polish sausage, why did
you ask me if I’m Polish?”
 
The clerk replied, “Because you’re in Ace Hardware.”
