I have always enjoyed the old Soviet humor, and I thought I’d share this one that I found in my notes:
A flock of sheep were stopped by frontier guards at the Russo-Finnish border.
“Why do you wish to leave Russia?” asked the guards?
“It’s the NKVD!”, replied the terrified sheep. “Comrade Beria has ordered them to arrest all elephants!”
“But you aren’t elephants!” the guards pointed out.
“Try telling that to the NVKD!” replied the sheep.
