Joke: Soviet style sharing

Seems the Soviet Department of Information Services (Ministry of Propaganda) was out in the field, taking "The Revolution" to the people: explaining the fundamentals of Socialism to the populace to bolster popularity.

A member of the Department was out talking to a farmer in Siberia.

Official: "So you see, comrade, dat it iz de way Marx explained: ' From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.' You understand?"

Farmer: (confused) "Nyet..."

Official: "OK. Iz like dis: Say a comrade has two cows. Ve take one cow from him and give it to comrade that has no cow. Dat is de Rewolution. You see?"

Farmer: "Da, Da! Iz good!"

Official: "And if a comrade has two tractors, ve take one of his tractors and give to man who has no tractors. Da?"

Farmer: "Da! Da! Is WERY good!"

Official: "And if a comrade has two cheekens, ve give one cheeken to man who has no cheekens. Da?"

Farmer: "Nyet! Iz not good!"

Official: "Vhy?"

Farmer: "I have two cheekens..."
