Socialist: You have two cows. The government takes one and gives it to your neighbor. You form a cooperative to tell him how to manage his cow.

Communist: You have two cows. The government seizes both and provides you with milk. You wait in line for hours to get it. It is expensive and sour.

A philosophical question. Where did this socialist and this communist get the cows in the first place? Black market? Hmmmm, time to send them both off for re-education. Hey, maybe some capitalist stole the cow from the guy in the other post that didn't have one, and then sold it on the black market to these guys?
I think the cows should be investigated. this is the second post today on these damn cows.


Been there, done that, the washing machine ate the T-shirt

In answer to your question, Bobber:

Democracy: You have two cows. The government taxes you to the point you have to sell both to support a man in a foreign country who has only one cow, which was a gift from your government.

then there's

Bureaucracy: You have two cows. The government takes them both, shoots one, milks the other, pays you for the milk, and then pours it down the drain.

Pass the vodka, please!

France - you have two cows. You want four. You go on strike.

Italy - you have two cows. You can't find them. You break for a long lunch.

Japan - you have two cows. You shrink them to save space, train them to milk themselves and fill little cartons with "cowky-mon" cartoons on them.

Germany - you have two cows. You demand that they give the milk of four. They drop dead.

United States - you have two cows. You trade one for a bull. You sell shares in four bulls.

England - you have two cows. Both are mad.

New Zeeland - you have two cows. The one on the right is looking kind of cute.

Belize - you have two cows. You are Mennonite and actually what to do with them!
