Ronald McReagan was a very unifyin' guy,
but also a very dividin' guy.
Politics aside, one thing I kinda been noticin'
about Ron R, is that the guy loved comedy.
This here thread will explore his relationship
with comedy.

Recently seen Rodney Dangerfield performin' on a
NBC special called "The Stars Salute The President".
Rodney is in top form, deliverin' some of his best jokes.
Ronald Reagan seems to genuinely be havin' the time
of his life.

It was Frank Sinatra, once Kennedy Democrat
turned Reagan Republican, who insisted to the
White House staff that Don Rickles perform at
the 2nd inauguration of Ronald McReagan.
As Don fondly remembered, "Frank told them,
if you don't have Rickles, you don't have me."
Don would later call it a highlight of his career.
The hesitation of the White House staff was not
shared by President Reagan, who was laughin' all
the way through Don's hilarious performance.

As President, Ron R kept a stack of joke
cards in his desk in the oval office.
Accordin' to his daughter, he also did a
Truman Capote impersonation.

For some, the ideal roast of Ronald Reagan
would have been the 40th President of the
United States bein' burned at the stake.
However, as Governor of California, Ron R
was roasted with jokes.

Ronald Reagan's humor extended to the bedroom.
Livin' up to his nickname "Dutch", Ronnie Boy gave
Nancy Reagan a dutch-oven on their wedding night.

Ron Ron found comfort in clowns.
He related to them in a profound manner
and would eventually go ahead and befriend
legendary clown Emmett Kelly.

Ronnie Boy was never ashamed of bein' caught
with his hand in the jelly bean jar.
Originally a device to kick his pipe smokin' habit,
jelly beans slowly began to hold a strong grip on
the gipper.
His days became a cycle of sugar rush highs and
sugar rush crashes.

There were several factors which lead to the
formation of Ronald McReagan.
1. Ronald Reagan's use of comedy to escape
painful events from his childhood.
2. The sugar rushes and sugar crashes of
his jelly bean addiction.
3. His love of clowns.
4. A psychotic break on a Presidential visit
to Grenada.

It began when furniture around the White House
was bein' moved durin' the night. The Secret Service
were alarmed that someone had evaded their security.
When a special unit was formed to investigate the
incident, Ronald McReagan was first discovered.

On retreats to Camp David, Ronald McReagan was at
his happiest. He could be seen frolickin' through the
woods in full make-up. He would dance in the moonlight and
sing some of his favorite old time tunes, such as "Buttons And
Bows", "A Tiskit A Tasket" and "I Want A Gal Just Like The Gal
Who Married Dear Old Dad".

The way you describe him he had been senile and demented for all his presidency.
David Bowie, according to Morrissey's description, showed similiar features.

The first time I met an American in person was in the early 90s in Berlin. He was a former soldier and wore a t-shirt saying "Ronald Reagan, the best president ever!" We had a good laugh.

The Ronald McReagan persona is not to be confused
with senility. I believe the Ronald McReagan persona
came from a place of joy. In Ron's mind, an extension
of his "perfect self".

We had such a jelly bean jar in our office. It was filled up once a week by an elderly coworker, whose careering staccato heels could be heard half a mile away. Her hairdo was as unmoveable as that of Margaret Thatcher. Usually, it were the men who, while quickly passing by, stout-heartedly dug their hand deeply into this friendly-looking honeypot and filled up their mouths like hamsters, to the joy of the above-mentioned co-worker.
One day, rumour had it that a pubic hair had been found in the jar....

One mornin' the secret service found Ronald McReagan asleep
at the dinin' room table in the White House. Durin' the night, he
had created a jelly bean Penguin. Later, Ronald McReagan was
observed havin' conversations with the Penguin.
