Reflections of a working writer and reader

 

 

Bush Humour

GW was visiting an elementary school and he asked if any of the children had a question. A little girl raised her hand.

“What is your name and what do you want to ask me” Bush asked.
“My name is Alicia”, the girl replied, “and I have three questions for you.”
“Why did we invade Iraq when there were no weapons of mass destruction, why haven’t we gotten Bin Laden, and why have you run up record budget deficits?”

Bush looked around to his aides and the bell went off. “Oh look, it is time for recess”, Bush said. “We will pick this up when you get back”.
The kids came back from recess. Bush asked again,” Do any of you have any questions for me?”

Little Jimmy raised his hand. “Yes, I have 5 questions for you”, he said.
“Why did we invade Iraq when there were no weapons of mass destruction, why haven’t we gotten Bin Laden, why have you run up record budget deficits, why did the recess bell go off a half hour early, and where is Alicia?

(Thanks to Geoff Gritten for this one. . .)

    I have six questions: the first five are the same as Little Jimmy’s; the sixth is: where is John? 😉
    Thanks for the laugh.

    Thanks Thomas. You’re like a son to me.

  4. Thanks for an excellent, topical and poignant joke. I relayed it to my mother this afternoon and she laughed as much as I did, which is quite a lot.
