Grammatical-political joke

We were going through the difference between "will" and "going to" in class the other day. "Going to" for plans, and (in this case) "will" for predictions.

I asked some questions with "going to" and then some prediction questions.

"Do you think it will rain tomorrow?"

"Yes, I think it will."

"Do you think Medvedev will be the next President of Russia?"

They laughed. "That is not a prediction. It is a plan."

Ba-DUMP-bump. Rim shot. But seriously folks. . .
