A Russian Communist Party official was driving through the country when he saw a farm worker kneeling in the middle of a field praying. He stopped the car and stomped over to the man.
“Aha! You waste your time like this instead of ploughing and planting for the Party.”
“But, Commissar,” the worker replied, “I’m praying for the Party.”
“Praying for the Party! Huh, and years ago you probably prayed for the Czar and his corrupt ministers who oppressed and exploited the peasants.”
“I did, Commissar.”
“Well, look what happened to them.”
“That’s right.” The man replied.
