Knock, Knock, Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door…
Bill Clinton, Al Gore and the Koch brothers were in an airplane that crashed. They’re up in heaven, and God’s sitting on the great white throne.
God addresses Al first. “Al, what do you believe in?”
Al replies, “Well, I believe that we need to save the world from climate change and that if any more Freon is used, all of humanity is doomed.” God thinks for a second and says, “Okay, that’s good. Come and sit at my left.”
God then addresses Bill Clinton. “Bill, what do you believe in?”
Bill Clinton replies, “Well, I believe in power to the people. I believe that democracy is a noble goal.” God thinks for a second and says, “Okay, that sounds good. Come and sit at my right.”
God then addresses the Koch brothers: ” What do you believe in,” God asks them.
The Koch brothers answer: “We believe you’re in our chair.”
