Friday Caption Contest: The Communist Party

To celebrate the triumph of the workers on this Labo(u)r Day long weekend, we present the following image, for your captioning pleasure. Remember, in Soviet Russia… um … I dunno … something strong like tractor? something. Why do you think I make YOU do all the work with these?

    I find it interesting that silly pictures of these figures are considered acceptable, while a similar picture of Hitler, who only murdered 1/5 as many people as they did, would not be.

    Oh, you haven’t been reading me long, have you? I think I put one of those up last year.

    I’m sure they’re with you and wouldn’t want anyone making fun of them either.

    not really a caption, but just a concern that the only one with a sense of humour (if you’d know if you read his poetry), is missing from this pic. He’s also the only one I’ve seen in his mausoleum.

    I know the one you mean. I hear he’s hanging with The Old Gringo and Elvis somewhere.

    What a sad tale – the workers’ heroes! Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Castro – Oy Vey! With these bastards at the helm workers were reduced to pure serfdom with no opportunity for advancement. The great Soviet joke/slogan about terrible consumer conditions and shody production comes to mind: “We Pretend To Work, And They Pretend To Pay Us!”

    “Have you seen Snowball?”

    “Actually yes, and that reminds me about the entree: In Soviet Russia we do things differently. Instead of pulled pork it’s putsched pork.”

    Stalin to Castro: “He may have written The Communist Manifesto, but look who’s Party Secretary!”

    Marx to Lenin: “You let that half-armed gimp be Party Secretary? WTF?!!!! That wasn’t in my damned dialectic!!”

    Castro to Mao: “If I’m getting a Party Secretary, she’s gonna be a mujer caliente!”

    Mao to Castro: “A 12-year old Party Secretary, yesssss!!!”
