Stalin sits at his usual table, in the glorius kremlin studying the map of eastern germany. His pencil sitting proudly beside him. Comrade Stalin looks away for a split second, and the pencil is gone! Stalin takes out a second pencil and places it on the table. Looks the other way again and the second pencil is gone! The same story continues 3-4 times until stalin had enough. So, he calls in Beria- the chief of the NKVD.
Beria- Comrade Stalin! What have you summoned me for?
Stalin in a thick georgian accent- Comrade Beria, someone is stealing all of my pencils. Find who this fascist is that is stealing all of my pencils.
Beria- Yes! Ofcourse comrade Stalin!
Some time passed and stalin finds a drawer that is half open on the side of his desk with all of the pencils in it. He calls Beria to his office.
Beria- Good day comrade stalin! What do you want?
Stalin in a thick georgian accent says- Comrade Beria! I found all of the pencils! They were in my drawer this whole time! Cancel the search,
Beria- What do you mean comrade stalin? 700 people confessed already!
