On Adjusting the Topic . . Go to Teacher's Comment

I felt that finding political jokes in 19th century to early 20th century would be difficult and they would be much less than jokes in the recent times. So I broaden the scope from political jokes to political humor which can include not only jokes but also other humorous political words or illustrations. I think the approach would not be that different from what I intended before. Spanish version of political humor, English translation, explanation and analysis. But I am unsure about whether I should divide the history chapter into two and explain the political words and illustrations separately.

I Introduction
Throughout the history, politics has been one of the most important and central issues for people, as it can influence almost every aspect of people¡¯s lives. Whether or not politics have been good or bad, a few privileged people always have ruled other great number of people. With this situation, people have developed various methods to deliver their opinions and one of them would be through political satire, jokes, cartoons, etc. These political humors have been great tools for people to give their opinions successfully with less danger and more wit.
This paper would deal with this political humor, specifically, of Argentina history. The paper would explain the aspects and changes of political humor including jokes, satires, and cartoons of Argentina throughout its history from the independence of Argentina in the early 19th century to recent. It aims to find out the correlation between the history of Argentina and political humor in accessible sources.

Joke No.1` . . Go to Teacher's Comment

Carlos Menem went to visit a class of 4th. Degree of a primary school. His arrival came during a discussion about words and their meanings. The teacher asked the President if he would participate in the discussion of the meaning of the word "tragedy."
So the illustrious leader asked the class an example of "tragedy."
A little boy stood up and said: - If a friend of mine, is playing in the street and hit by a car, that's a tragedy. - No, "said Menen" That would be an accident.
A small raised his hand and said: - If a school bus transportation has melted down a cliff, killing all its occupants, that would be a tragedy. - I'm afraid not, "said the President" That's what we might call a great loss.
The silence grew in the classroom. No other students were encouraged to respond. Menen encouraged them to continue, saying: - Is there anyone who can give me an example of what a tragedy?
Finally, in the back of the room, a small boy raised his hand and soft voice, he dared to say: - If the Tango 01 is transported to the President and the entire Cabinet and a missile is destroyed, making it shatter, that would be a tragedy. -
Great, "said Menen" That's fine. And could you tell me why that would be a tragedy? -
Yes, "the boy" Because, first of all, it would not be an accident and second, it would not be a big loss.
