Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Good Joke

Mrs. Barbara Bush is here today for our annual memorial dinner and to talk to the Ashbrook Scholars which, I should add, C-SPAN is taping and will run sometime between 8pm and 11pm (Eastern time) on Saturday, so I will stop blogging for the day. So I end with this joke from today’s Jay Nordlinger’s column:

The following joke — said to be current in Iraq — has been making the rounds here:

"The eight Saddam body doubles are gathered in one of the bunkers in downtown Baghdad. Tariq Aziz, the deputy prime minister, comes in and says, ’I have some good news and some bad news.’ They ask for the good news first.

"Aziz says, ’The good news is that Saddam is still alive, so you all still have jobs.’

"’And the bad news?’ they ask.

"Aziz replies, ’He’s lost an arm.’"

That’s a good one. Here’s one that I had sent to me this morning...

Saddam Hussein and his chauffeur were rolling down the highway when suddenly they hit a pig crossing the road. They killed it instantly.

Saddam tells his driver, "Go to the farm over there and explain to the owner of the pig what happened."

One hour later, Saddam sees his driver coming back from the farm, his clothes all wrinkled, a bottle of wine in one hand and a cigar in the other.

"What happened to you?" He asks.

"Well, the farmer gave me a bottle of wine, his wife, the cigar and their 19 year old daughter made wild passionate love to me."

"My God! What did you tell them?" asked President Hussein.

The driver answered, "Good evening, I am Saddam Hussein’s chauffeur and I have just killed the pig."
