But every joke contains a kernel of truth. That's what makes a joke funny. That's why people get offended by racist jokes, sexist jokes, etc. It's because the joke contains some pre-supposed truth that minorities or women are in some way inferior. I'm searching for the kernel of truth in this joke...I don't get it. for at least one of the posters here it wasn't a joke. personally, i don't get it either. what does the current Boss share with the Boss of 70 years ago in terms of management team and values? and how many Germans today had parents and grandparents who continued drawing a salary while the Nazis were in power? should we stop associating with them too for being the descendents of collaborators? you get on a slippery slope.
