Cheap Dubya joke.

This magpie's been remiss about posting for the past few days that we've been in Seattle, trying (successfully) to find a place to live for the next few months. Since we don't have time to come up with a post with real substance, we figured that a hit-and-run cheap shot at the current administration in Washington is the least we can do:

So the prez is just arriving back in Washington after yet another of his vacations at his ranch in Crawford, Texas. Air Force One rolls to a stop, right next to the usual array of military and government officials. Dubya comes out the door and descends the stairs, with a pig under each of his arms. When he gets to the bottom of the stairs, he's met by a general, who salutes.

Dubya looks at the general, then down at the pigs, and says, 'I'd salute you, but I'm carrying these pigs.'

'Yes, sir,' says the general. 'They appear to be very fine pigs.'

'They're not just any pigs, you know,' Dubya continues. 'They're Texas razorback hogs.'

'Quite impressive,' says the general.

'I got this one for Vice President Cheney,' says the prez, nodding toward the pig under his right arm. 'And this other one for Secretary Rumsfeld,' he continues, nodding at the pig under his left arm.

'You made a very shrewd trade, Mr President,' says the general.

We'll leave now before any of you can start throwing stuff at us.

Here's another cheap shot, it's too long to post here, but starts like:

While visiting England, George Bush is invited to tea with the Queen. He asks her what her leadership philosophy is. She says that it is to surround herself with intelligent people...
