And now for a new joke in my ongoing 'I Love This Joke' series. Ta-ta-ta-raaaaaaaa!! Fasten your seatbelts, put on your crash helmets. It's a pretty good one, if you're a Democrat. And if you're a Bush-loving Republican (Hi, Dad!), you'll get over it.
One day recently George W. Bush had his daily meeting with his advisors to find out what was going on in Iraq and Afghanistan.
"Well, y'all, lay it on me," Bush began. "How's it lookin' out there?"
Condi cleared her throat. "Well, sir, let's start with casualties. It hasn't been too bad, lately, but we did have two Brazilian soldiers killed yesterday."
Bush's mouth dropped open and his face turned ashen. "Oh, dear God, what do you mean that's not too bad?! That's terrible, that's awful, we have to do something. Call a press conference!"
But then he paused, and furrowed his brow. "Wait a minute, Condi. Before we go on national television with this news, tell me one thing. Just exactly how many is a brazillion?"
Bah-dum-bump-chaaaaaa! Thank you, thank you, I'll be here all week.
