"President" Bush was visiting a primary school and he

visited one of the classes. They were in the middle of a discussion

related to words and their meanings. The teacher asked the President if

he would like to lead the discussion on the word "tragedy". So the

illustrious leader asked the class for an example of a "tragedy".

One little boy stood up and offered: "If my best friend, who lives on a

farm, is playing in the field and a tractor runs over him and kills him,

that would be a tragedy.

" No," said Bush, "that would be an accident."

A little girl raised her hand: "If a school bus carrying 50 children drove

over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy."

"I'm afraid not," explained the president. "That's what we would call

great loss."

The room went silent. No other children volunteered.

Bush searched the room. "Isn't there someone here who can give me an

example of a tragedy?"

Finally at the back of the room a small boy raised his hand...

In a quiet voice he said: "If Air Force One carrying you and Mrs. Bush was

struck by a "friendly fire" missile

and blown to smithereens, that would be a tragedy."

"Fantastic!" exclaimed Bush. "That's right. And can you tell me why that

would be tragedy?"

"Well," says the boy, "It has to be a tragedy, because it certainly

wouldn't be a great loss and it probably wouldn't be an accident either".

Donald Rumsfeld is giving the President his daily briefing, and

concludes by saying: "Yesterday, Mr President, 3 Brazilian soldiers were killed in an accident."

"Oh MY GOD!", the President exclaims, "That's terrible", and slumps forward, head in hands.

His staff sit there, nervously watching, stunned at this display of emotion.

Finally the President looks up and asks......

"How many is a brazillion"?
