What We Know Now
Sometimes it's quite interesting to revisit old ones in the context of "What we know now." This one made the rounds in September 2002.
President Bush and Don Rumsfeld were sitting in a bar. A guy walks in and asks the barman, "Isn't that Bush and Rumsfeld sitting over there?"
The barman looks over and confirms, "Yep, that's them."
So the guy walks over and says, "Wow, this is a real honor. What are you guys doing in here?"
Bush checks to make sure no one is listening in, and whispers, "We're planning our next war."
And the guy says, "Really? What's going to happen?"
Bush says, "Well, we're going to kill 140 million Iraqis and one bicycle repairman."
The guy exclaimed, "A bicycle repairman? Why kill a bicycle repairman?"
And Bush turns to Rumsfeld, punches him on the shoulder and says, "See, smart ass? I told you no one would worry about the 140 million Iraqis!"
