The following is a conversation between my little brother and my mother:
Greg: A halfway-decent Republican is a step up from a halfway-decent Democrat!
Mom: Do you even know what Democrats and Republicans stand for?
Greg: Sure I do. Repulicans have a donkey.
Mom: No, the Democrat's mascot is a donkey.
Greg: So, we're pigs, right?
Mom: No, Republicans are elephants.
Greg: We're big and fat?
Mom (frustrated): That's better than being an ass!
