“You want to hear a Social Security joke? You probably won’t get it”

The Social Security crisis led to this “joke”:

“You want to hear a Social Security joke? You probably won’t get it.”

“Get it” refers to both the joke and the Social Security financial crisis. Similar jokes have been told about Ebola and the coronavirus.

“I have a social security joke....but you won’t get it. #haha #jokes #funny” was posted on Twitter by Dustin Powers on December 16, 2012. “I wrote a joke about Social Security but you probably won’t get it” was posted on Twitter by Nathan England on May 16, 2015. “I was going to tell you a joke about Social Security.

Wikipedia: Social Security (United States)
In the United States, Social Security is the commonly used term for the federal Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) program and is administered by the Social Security Administration. The original Social Security Act was signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1935, and the current version of the Act, as amended, encompasses several social welfare and social insurance programs.
(...)
In 2018, the trustees of the Social Security Trust Fund reported that the program will become financially insolvent in the year 2034 unless corrective action is enacted by Congress.
