“What is that?”

“WHAT is that?! You mean WHO is that?! That is Lenin, the genius who created our worker’s paradise!”

The Soviet official chuckled and let the old man through.

When the old man arrived at Tel Aviv airport, an Israeli customs official found the bust of Lenin.

“What is that?”

“WHAT is that?! You mean WHO is that?! That is Lenin, the son-of-a-b*tch! I will display him over my toilet for all the years he stopped me from coming home!”

The Israeli official laughed and let him through.

When the old man arrived at his family’s house in Jerusalem, his grandson saw him unpack the bust.

“Who is that?”

“WHO is that?! You mean WHAT is that?! THAT, my child, is eight pounds of gold!”
