What do you call a much milder and much funnier version of Marxism-Leninism? Marxism-Lennonism! (Named after Groucho Marx and John Lennon.)

Also, there's this funny WWII Disney Donald Duck animated cartoon in reference to Hitler and Nazi Germany:






When der Führer says we is de master race
We heil (pffft) heil (pffft) right in der Fuehrer's face
Not to love der Führer is a great disgrace
So we heil (pffft) heil (pffft) right in der Fuehrer's face

When Herr Goebbels says we own the world and space
We heil (pffft) heil (pffft) right in Herr Goebbels' face
When Herr Göring says they'll never bomb dis place
We heil (pffft) heil (pffft) right in Herr Goering's face

Are we not the supermen?
Aryan pure supermen?
Ja, we is the supermen
Super duper supermen
Is this Nazi land so good?
Would you leave it if you could?
Ja, this Nazi land is good
We wouldn't leave it if we could

We bring to the world New Order
Heil Hitler's world New Order
Everyone of foreign race
Will love der Führer's face
When we bring to the world dis order

When der Führer says we is de master race
We heil (pffft) heil (pffft) right in der Fuehrer's face
Not to love der Führer is a great disgrace
So we heil (pffft) heil (pffft) right in der Fuehrer's face

When der Führer says we never will be slaves
We heil (pffft) heil (pffft), but still we work like slaves
While der Führer brags and lies and rants and raves
We heil (pffft) heil (pffft), and work into our graves

When der Führer yells, I got to have more shells
We heil (pffft) heil (pffft), for him we make more shells
If one little shell would blow him right to (clang)
We heil (pffft) heil (pffft), and wouldn't that be swell

When der Führer says we is de master race
We heil (pffft) heil (pffft) right in der Fuehrer's face
Not to love der Führer is a great disgrace
So we heil (pffft) heil (pffft) right in der Fuehrer's face

Here's another funny joke about the Soviet Union:

"Comrade Khrushchev, how is the harvest this year?"

"Why, it's average!"

"Average? What does that mean?"

"It means that it's worse than last year's but better than next year's."

"Need Another Seven Astronauts".

I find this is still true today.

"A civil servant is like a broken cannon. It won't work and you can't fire it". - General George S. Patton.
