|43-41 Comrade Imperialists
Brezhnev was thought not to be too bright.
He comes to address a big Communist party meeting, and starts: "Dear Comrade Imperialists,"
The whole hall perked up - "what did he say?"
Brezhnev tried again. "Dear Comrade Imperialists!" Well, by now the hall was in pandemonium - was he trying to call them Imperialists?
Then, an advisor walked over to the podium and pointed to the speech for Brezhnev.
"Oh..." he muttered, and started again: "Dear Comrades,Uhm…. Imperialists are everywhere."
