A genuine "in Soviet Russia" joke

A couple weeks ago, we went to dinner with a friend and her family, who had defected from the Soviet Union in the 1980s. When her mother saw a strawberry on one of the plates, she commented about how it was out of season, and that it reminded her of a joke they had in Soviet Russia:

When can you buy strawberries in Russia?
From May to June.
When can you buy strawberries in America?
From 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
