Editor’s note: Do you need something to smile about? Every day, WND selects the best joke offered up by readers and contributors to its Laughlines forum and brings it to you as the WND Joke of the Day. Here is today’s offering:

Let’s call it Psalm 2009:

The politician is my shepherd – I am in want:

He maketh me to lie down on park benches.

He leadeth me beside the still factories.

He disturbeth my soul.

He leadeth me in the path of destruction for the party’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Depression,

I anticipate no recovery for he is with me.

He prepareth a reduction in my salary. In the presence of mine enemies,

He anointeth my small income with taxes: my expense runneth over.

Surely unemployment and poverty shall follow me all the days of my life.

And I shall dwell in a mortgaged house forever.

Got a great joke you want to share with the world? Write it up in the WND Laughlines forum. Who knows? It might be selected as the WND Joke of the Day – and your wildest dreams will come true.
