Not so blind

A bit of light relief from ZenTiger to start the day and open your eyes. Well done.

Helen Clark and Mike Williams are taking a stroll when they come upon a little girl carrying a basket with a blanket over it. Curious, Clark asks the girl, "What's in the basket?"

"New baby kittens," she replies, and she opens the basket to show her. "How nice," says Clark. "What kind are they?"

The little girl says, "that one is Labour and the other is Greens" and
Clark smiles, pats the little girl on the head and continues on.

Three weeks later, Clark is taking another stroll, this time with Jeanette Fitzsimons. They see the little girl again with the same basket.

Clark says, "Watch this, Jeanette -- it's really cute."

They approach the little girl. Clark greets her and asks how the kittens are doing, and she says, "Fine."

Then, smirking, she nudges Jeanette with her elbow and asks the little girl, "And can you tell us what kind of kittens they are?"

She replies, "National and Act".
Aghast, Clark says, "But three weeks ago you said they were Labour and Greens!"

"I know," she says. "But now their eyes are open."

A few people have liked this joke. It's an oldie that seems to do the rounds every few years. Maybe the old stuff is going retro?

And maybe not. I got a few more of those. The question is, do I feel lucky?
