And now for a sampling of humor from the Soviet Union (when it still WAS the
Soviet Union)   >non-offensive<

     A schoolboy sees a picture of a dear, and he had never seen a deer
before, so he askes his teacher, "What is this?
     The teacher responds, "Why, that is a creature they write all of the
poetry about..."
     So the schoolboy immediately says, "So that's what Lenin looks like!"
