Awful Jokes Comes to Mind--

OK, I remember this: maybe it was Ray Charles, who had a wicked sense of humor, doing it, or Stevie Wonder, or someone playing them in a Saturday Night Live sketch:

Scene: First press conference after Lieutenant Governor of New York David A. Paterson becomes governor:

Press: "Mr. Paterson, how does it feel to be the first black governor of new York?"

Paterson: "I'm black? OH MY GOD I'M BLACK! Why didn't anyone ever tell me??"

Entirely inappropriate of course due to the Spitzer train wreck, but I bet he wishes he could pull that in response to that probably inevitable question--.
