Sometime after January 2005...

An old man approached the White House from the park across Pennsylvania Avenue where he'd been sitting on a park bench. He spoke to the US Marine standing guard and said, "I'd like to go in and meet with President Bush."

The Marine looked at the man and said, "Sir, Mr. Bush is no longer
president and no longer resides here." The old man said, "Okay" and walked away.

The following day, the same man approached the White House and said to the same Marine,
"I'd like to go in and meet with President Bush."

The Marine again told the man, "Sir, Mr. Bush is no longer president and no longer resides here."
The man thanked him and again just walked away.

The third day, the same man approached the White House and spoke to
the very same US Marine, saying, "I'd like to go in and meet with President Bush."

The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and said,

"Sir, this is the third day in a row you've been here asking to speak to Mr. Bush. I've told you already that Bush is no longer president and no longer resides here. Don't you understand?"

The old man looked at the Marine and said, "Oh, I understand. I just love hearing it."

The Marine snapped to attention, saluted, and said, "SEE YOU TOMORROW, SIR!"
  • Bwahaha!

    Forwarded to D, and various out-laws & partners-in-crime in Oz.
  • Oh my. That's so damn funny.
  • BAH hahahahahahahaha

    Oh, thank you. I needed to read that this morning.
  • Just...classic....
  • (no subject) -
    • I think I like 'I'm sorry, we no longer sell Pravda' a bit better. I had not heard that older (perhaps-original) version.
      • I am told pravda means "truth." It is also the punchline of a very funny obscene joke a Russian friend told me once. (It won't work without the hand guestures, so I won't tell it here). The joke was terribly sarcastic about the contents of the paper.

        Still, when you wrote that, my brain read, "I'm sorry, we no longer sell truth." A good slogan for Fox News, no?
  • *dies laughing*
    Thanks, I needed that. :D
