If you slept through the blaring of the Internationale last night, or just decided to watch the Fox comedy block instead, we’ve got news for you: we have a new mayor. Bill de Blasio is our 109th mayor, and barring a situation where Bloomberg buys all the ballots and changes them, will take office in January. Whether a very, very tall Park Slope liberal with a beautiful interracial family ends up being good or bad for the city, or disappointing to the liberals who swept him in to office is yet to be seen. One thing we know for sure though is that we all brought the funny on this last night of the election cycle, so let’s take a stroll through the best election jokes of the night.
