is another tasteless joke which one can enjoy even if one doesn't agree with the political agenda (which, being an anti-communist, I clearly don't).
I can certainly understand your point of view on the "implied notion", Horatio. Although no implication was intended, I do get your point.
I think your analysis is spot on....since kids (since time immemorial) do have a tendency to model themselves on people they look up to (or at)....especially those who have an "image" of a sort. (Re: Perry, Simpson, and Bieber.)
The joke you referenced afterward was amusing to hear, but the teller had a very strong counterpoint to it. It was interesting. Thanks for pointing it out.
