    Well it is understandable that neither of you would get it. The premise is Russian reversal. A line of jokes that are based not within and language or an idiom in a language. There was this comedian with the last name of Smirnov (I believe). His jokes about Russia, and after the collapse of the Union, Soviet Russia were all phrase in this fashion. The use of antimetabole that is. There is more information involved. There are references in pop culture... Among other things.

    Google or Wiki "in soviet russia jokes" for more info.

    Sorry to bore you. Lol

    The long explanation is funnier than the original joke.

    Work on some one liners and keep your day job.

    Nice. Well luckily for me I'm not trying to be a comedian. I thought there would be at least a few people in the half a million members that would know about this line of jokes. Lol. Oh well.
