Being the Polite President
« on: April 22, 2019, 07:25:07 pm »
As Air Force One arrives at the Heathrow Airport , President Trump
strides to a warm and dignified reception from the Queen.
They are driven in a 1934 Bentley to the edge of central London, where
they change to a magnificent 17th century carriage hitched to six white
horses. They continue on towards Buckingham Palace, waving to the
thousands of cheering Britons; all is going well.
Suddenly, the right rear horse lets out the most horrendous earth
shattering fart ever heard in the British Empire . The smell is so atrocious
that both passengers in the carriage must use handkerchiefs over their
The fart shakes the coach, but, the two Heads of State do their best
to ignore the incident. The Queen politely turns to President Trump and
says:  "Mr. President, please accept my deepest regrets...I am sure you
understand there are some things that even a Queen cannot control."
Trump, always trying to be "Presidential," responded: "Your Majesty,
do not give the matter another thought...Until you mentioned it, I thought
it was one of the horses.”
“Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”
― Shel Silverstein

Drinking RUM before noon makes you a PIRATE not an alcoholic!
