IF ONLY.........


Shortly after the next revolution, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, and George W. Bush are condemned to face a firing squad in a small Central American country.

Bill Clinton is the first one placed against the wall but, just before the order to fire is given, he yells out, "Earthquake!"

The firing squad panics, and Bill jumps over the wall and escapes in the confusion.

Al Gore is the second one placed against the wall. The squad reassembles and Al ponders on what he has just witnessed. Taking his cue from Clinton, just before the order to fire is given Al yells out, "Tornado!"

Again the squad falls apart, and Al slips over the wall.

Now it’s George W. Bush’s turn. As he is placed against the wall he thinks "Ah, I see the pattern here!" So he confidently refuses the blindfold as the firing squad lines up.

As they raise their rifles in his direction, Dubya grins from ear to ear and yells, "FIRE!"

I see that Dubya stuck his foot in it with our Queen Liz.
When I saw it she gave new meaning to the phrase 'pained smile'.

Maybe if they hadn't had a revolution, and stayed in the Commonwealth, he'd have had better manners and be less of a world menace.

I find it hard to imagine a world in which the U.S. is the largest most populist country in the Commonwealth. Much to much power for one little island nation to control, even more frightening than the current scenario.

Anticant : you are less than diplomatic.
One would expect better from an Oxbridge education.
Must do better.
