The most truthful course in the History of the USSR. A heroic biography of one sixth of the Earth made of jokes, caricatures and the decrees of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. — Soviet life humour: what can amuse those who were born in this country? — The most joyful times in our history: were there any or not? — Peculiarities of national humour: how can one tell satire from humour? — Black humour of the Father of Nations: why Stalins jokes were anti-Soviet. — Clowns of the Soviet political theatre: was it a joke or did he mean it? — Aesopian language of anecdote: why do our jokes love repressions? And more: laughter through tears as the main achievement of our life.Foolproof needs of peoples below as a safe type of humour.
