Out of the firing pan

We've created this area in the hope of seeing material ranging from some well-told (or well retold) jokes to original writing with a humorous slant, or anything else that might appeal to the kind of person who enjoys playing with words more than people. That probably means someone like yourself. N.B. -- Postings preceded by ** contain some sexual or risqué content. (Makes them easier to find.)

Out of the firing pan

Post by Erik_Kowal » Sun Sep 12, 2021 4:57 am

It's 1937 in Soviet Russia, the height of the Great Purge. In one of the gulags, a firing squad is about to execute the first political prisoner of the day.

The officer shouts “Ready… Aim…”, and is about to give the order "Fire!" when the prisoner yells out, “Fuck Stalin!”

Everything stops.

The captain of the guards walks up to the man, lifts his blindfold a bit, and snarls, “Are you looking for trouble, or what?"
