Someone Had Gas.

on October 10th, 2002

President Bush is representing the United States of America on a highly formal, carefully orchestrated state visit to England. Air Force One lands and comes to a stop at one end of a bright red carpet along which the President strides to join Queen Elizabeth II in a beautiful, ornate 17th-century coach hitched to six enormous matched white horses. The coach proceeds through the streets of London en route to Buckingham Palace. The Queen and the President all-the-while waving to the cheering crowds.

Then suddenly the right rear horse produces a thunderous, cataclysmic fart that reverberates through the air and rattles the door latches on the coach. Uncomfortable, the reaction of the two powerful figures is to focus their attentions elsewhere and behave as if nothing extraordinary had happened.

But the Queen is the first to realize that ignoring what had just happened is ridiculous. She explains, "Mr. President, please accept my regrets. I'm sure you understand that there are some things which even a Queen cannot control."

President Bush replies, "Your Majesty, please don't give the matter another thought. If you hadn't said something I would have thought it was one of the horses."
