Monica Lewinsky just won the “I have a joke” meme that spread across Twitter on Saturday. Her contribution concerned her relationship with former President Bill Clinton when she was a White House intern, which led to his impeachment for perjury.
The meme goes, “I have a joke but ...” and the humor comes in the explanation of why the joke won’t be revealed — as in: “I have a prune joke, but it’s kind of dated.” Or “I have an astronomy joke, but might be over your head.” Or “I have a Star Wars joke, but it’s kinda forced.”
Lewinsky was particularly taken with the quip: “I have a Charles Manson joke, and it kills.” She fired back: “I have an intern joke and it... nevermind.”
The Twitterverse was smitten. Even the never-Trump Republican Lincoln Project responded.
