The Pope is visiting Washington, D.C., and President Bush takes him out for an afternoon on the Potomac, cruising on the Presidential yacht, the Sequoia. They're admiring the sights when, all of a sudden, the Pope's hat (zucchetto) blows off his head and out into the water.

Secret Service guys start to launch a boat, but President Bush waves them off, saying, "Wait, wait. I'll take care of this. Don't worry."

Bush then steps off the yacht onto the surface of the water and walks out to the Holy Father's little hat, bends over, picks it up, and then walks back to the yacht and climbs aboard. He hands the hat to the Pope amid stunned silence.

The next morning, the headlines in the New York Times, Boston Globe, Atlanta Constitution, Washington Post, Boston Herald, Buffalo News, Houston Chronicle, Milwaukee Sentinel-Journal, Minneapolis Tribune, Denver Post, Albuquerque Journal, Los Angeles Times, and San Francisco Chronicle all proclaim:

"Bush Can't Swim!"

Fox News: "Told You So!"

Well, that answers the question "Who Would Jesus Bomb?"

Heh.

Was it on Hatrack that I heard the genocide joke about Bush and the Iranians?

The level of hatred is too high for humor like this to really work IMJ. Which is too bad.

Whom would Jesus bomb?

Dunno. But he'd probably use proper nominative/objective forms [Wink] .

Iranian president Mahmud Ahmadinejad calls President Bush and tells him, "George, I had a wonderful dream last night. I could see America, the whole beautiful country, and on each house I saw a banner."

"What did it say on the banner?" Bush asks. Mahmud replies, "Allah is Great."

Bush says, "You know, Mahmud, I am really happy you called. Last night I had a similar dream. I could see all of Tehran, and it was more beautiful than ever. It had been rebuilt completely, and on each house flew an enormous banner."

"What could you see on the banners?" Mahmud says. Bush replies,

"I don't know, I can't read Hebrew."

And a typical "Bush is stupid" joke, but a funny one:

BUSH PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY DESTROYED BY FLOOD

Crawford, Texas -- A tragic flood this morning destroyed the personal library of President George W. Bush. The flood began in the presidential bathroom where the books were kept. Both of his books have been lost. A presidential spokesman said the president was devastated, as he had almost finished coloring the second one. The White House tried to call FEMA but there was no answer.

I was ready to be offeneded, but that library joke was funny. I hear Clinton's library is for adults only.

My favorite Bush joke is the one where he's getting briefed in the morning by all his advisors, you know, insurgents in Iraq, fires, famine, and he's listening to all this, and finally they wind it all up by telling him about six Brazilian soldiers who were killed in an ambush in the early hours of the morning.

Bush blanches and says, Oh my GOD. He's all hollow-eyed and silent for a moment, and then he raises his head and whispers, How much is a brazillion?

Ho-ho-ho.

What I like about President jokes is that there is always one ready to be made, regardless of who gets elected. [Smile]

Um, yeah. [Grumble]
