An American Jew visits Russia and is asked about life in America. Thank G-d,
he replies, life is good, and how is life in the Soviet Union? Here, replies
the Russian, it is also good, but here we don’t say thank G-d. Here we say
Thank Brezhnev. What will you say when Brezhnev dies, the American inquires.
Then we will say thank G-d, replies the Russian.
