Here is a joke, for which one could’ve gotten a prison term back in the day.

An unidentified object appears over the USA. Two F17 successfully intercept it. The two pilots are invited to Pres. Carter. He pulls out two boxes. In each box – $100.000. Pilots take the money, Carter shake their hands, and they leave.

An unidentified object appears over the USSR. Two MiG-21 pilots successfully intercept it. The two pilots are invited to Brezhnev. He pulls out two boxes. In each – an order: “Hero of the Soviet Union”. Then hangs the medals onto pilots’ uniforms, kisses them in the lips (!), and they leave. Brezhnev thinks a bit, pulls a third box, and hangs third order on himself.

Leonid Brezhnev
