Think this may have been posted on here before but it's pretty darn funny (well to me anyway) so thought I would trot it out again, ya could change the name From Bush to the present incumbent and it would be just as accurate.
President Bush was visiting a primary school. One of the classes was in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings. The teacher asked the president if he would like to lead the discussion on the word "tragedy".
So the illustrious leader asked the class for an example of a "tragedy".
One little boy stood up and offered, "If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a tractor runs him over and kills him, that would be a tragedy."
"No," said Bush, "that would be an accident."
A little girl raised her hand: "If a school bus carrying 50 children drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy."
"I'm afraid not," explained the president. "That's what we would call a great loss."
The room went silent. No other children volunteered
Bush searched the room. "Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of tragedy?"
Finally at the back of the room a small boy raised his hand. In a quiet voice he said: "If Air Force One carrying Mr. Bush was struck by a "friendly fire" missile and blown to smithereens, that would be a tragedy." " Fantastic!" exclaimed Bush. "That's right. And can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?
"Well," says the boy, "it has to be a tragedy, because it certainly wouldn't be a great loss and it probably wouldn't be an accident either."
I do remember reading it before....though I would fail miserably at retelling it. I'm horrible at telling jokes; if I somehow manage to make it through the retelling without leaving out details, I forget the punchline, or mess it up entirely.
Speaking of making errors....
BP gave up eating red meat a few years ago. I told her it was a big missed steak.
What if Soy Milk is just Regular Milk introducing itself in Spanish?
It took me awhile (I read your post yesterday morning) to get it; I don't know Spanish. However Beck's song "Loser" has been stuck in my head since, with of course the wrong lyrics because after "Soy", I just make up the rest of the Spanish words he's singing.
I hate Russian dolls, they are so full of themselves.
Parallel lines have so much in common. It's a shame they'll never meet.
Man walks into the Dr.'s office and says: "Doc, I can't stop singing The Green Green Grass of Home." Dr. says: "That sounds like Tom Jones Syndrome." Man asks: "Is it common?" Dr. says: "Well, It's Not Unusual.."
This is a true story. One of the funniest signs I've ever seen.
I was sitting in a public toilet a long time ago. As I was going about my business I noticed a small label stuck to the bottom of the door. The printing was so small I had to lean right forward to read it. It said....
