One of my favourite jokes is this:

Lenin, Stalin and Brezhnev are in a train that is running late. The conductor arrives and apologises that he doesn’t know wny the train is not moving. Lenin says, “Shoot all the owners of the railway company.” After a little while, the conductor comes back and says, “We have shot the owners of the railway company, but still the train is not moving.” Stalin says, “Shoot the workers of the railway company.” After a little while, the conductor comes back and says, “We have shot the workers of the railway company, but still the train is not moving.” Brezhnev ponders for a moment, then says, “Paint all the windows black, and tell everyone the train is moving.”
