Conservatives are often depicted in the media and by Hollywood as dour, gloomy or negative and totally lacking of a sense of humor. You and I know that’s not true. Surfing around the conservative blog sites one can find many excellent examples of the lighter side of conservatism. Because my own post this week have been anything but humorous, I thought I’d lighten things up here at CoF today and share a few examples of conservative posting that tickled my funny bone.
First, from the always entertaining TOTUS: Conservative Political Commentaryy we have this fairy tale:
Next we have this tale of our inept President from the blogsense-by-barb blog:
Obama at the bank
(My thanks to Patriot Post for their Humor!)
Barack Obama walks into the bank to cash a check. “Good morning, Ma’am,” he greets the cashier, “could you please cash this check for me?”
“It would be my pleasure, sir. Could you please show me your ID?”
“Truthfully, I did not bring my ID with me as I didn’t think there was any need to. I am President Barack Obama, the president of the United States of America!”
“Yes, sir, I know who you are, but with all the regulations, monitoring of the banks because of impostors and forgers, etc, I must insist on seeing ID.”
“Just ask anyone here at the bank who I am and they will tell you. Everybody knows who I am.”
“I am sorry Mr. President but these are the bank rules and I must follow them.”
“I am urging you please to cash this check.”
“Ok, this is what we can do Mr. President: One day Tiger Woods came into the bank without ID. To prove he was Tiger Woods he pulled out his putting iron and made a beautiful shot across the bank into a cup. With that shot we knew him to be Tiger Woods and cashed his check. Another time, Andre Agassi came in without ID. He pulled out his tennis racquet and made a fabulous shot, making the tennis ball land in my cup. With that spectacular shot we cashed his check. So, Mr. President, what can you do to prove that it is you, and only you, as the president of the United States?”
Obama stands there thinking and finally says, “Honestly, there is nothing that comes to my mind. I can’t think of a single thing I’m good at.”
“Will that be large or small bills, Mr. President?”
Finally, my personal favorite of the week, I found thanks to Patricia (loopyloo) of MY BLOG and comes from the blog Boudica BPI Weblog. This bit of humor brings back fon memories of the six years I lived among the great people of Southern Missouri. it seems the Pentagon has a new plan for bringing end to the war in Afghanistan:
The Pentagon announced today the formation of a new 500-man elite fighting unit called the US Redneck Special Forces (USRSF). These southern boys will be dropped in Afghanistan knowing only these facts about terrorists.1. The season opened today. 2. There is no limit. 3. They taste just like chicken. 4. They don’t like beer, pickups, country music or Jesus. 5. They are directly responsible for the death of Dale Earnhardt. The Pentagon expects the problem in Afghanistan to be over by Monday.
I hope you enjoyed these examples of conservative humor. If you have a favorite example of conservative humor, please share them with us in the comments section.
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

Nice change of pace. Jim. We do indeed need to keep our sense of humor if we are to make it through.
Yeah. I felt a need to lighten-up at least for one day.
We conservatives are actually the funny ones. Liberals? Their humor is childish, crass (anyone remember whoopi goldberg’s “This bush will not vote for that Bush”) and immature.
It’s amazing how delusional the left can be.
We are definitely the funny ones. Of course the left makes it easy for us.
Your article today inspired me to post a humorous spoof of an Andy Borowitz article I had originally written as an email to a Democrat friend. Borowitz is a very funny liberal.
Sometimes we need to back away from the serious stuff and share a smile with someone.
Great stuff Jim, thanks!
You’re very welcome, Steve.
I swiped your cartoon. It’s a classic!
Glad you like it, Grant.
Sometimes, it’s laugh or cry, huh?
Yes indeed, AOW. But taking time to laugh is a healthy thing to do, don’t you think?
“I can’t think of a single thing I’m good at.”–Indeed.
Thanks for the laughs.
You’re welcome, John.
Obama-Heimlich Maneuver Poster for the win!
Thanks for the laughs, off course liberals would never admit that we’re funnier than them. That’s only because we’re usually mocking them and poking big holes in their various fantasies and bald-faced lies.
You are welcome, MK.
Still LOLing on this one! gonna borrow it for my site…
