"Stalin is addressing the people" joke
Stalin is addressing the people. He announces:
Comrades, I have here a telegram from Trotsky. He states, "You were right and I was wrong. You are the true heir to Lenin. I should apologize."
From the front row a (comrade) tailor rises and calls, "Comrade Stalin!"
Stalin replies, "In our great free socialist state, even a tailor may address the head of state. What is it, Comrade Tailor?"
The tailor replies, "You`re reading it wrong."
"What," says Stalin, "what is wrong? How should I read it? Come up here and tell us."
The tailor reads: "You were right and I was wrong? *YOU* are the true heir to Lenin? *I* should apologize?"
