The definition of tragedy
    #3379199 - 11/18/04 01:32 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

George W. Bush is visits a primary school and is sitting in one of the
classes. They are in the middle of a discussion related to words and
their meanings. The teacher asks the President if he would like to
lead the discussion of the word, "tragedy." So the illustrious leader
asks the class for an example of a tragedy.

One little boy stands up and offers: "If my best friend, who lives on
a farm, is playing in the field and a runaway tractor comes along and
knocks him down dead, that would be a tragedy." "No," says President
Bush, "that would be an accident."

A little girl raises 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," explains the exalted leader. "That's what we would
call a great loss."

The room goes silent. No other children volunteer.

President Bush searches the room. "Isn't there someone here who can
give me an example of a tragedy?"

Finally, at the back of the room, little Johnny raises his hand. In a
quiet voice he says: "If Air Force One carrying you was struck by a
missile and blown to smithereens, that would be a tragedy."

"Fantastic!" exclaims President Bush, "That's right.
And can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?"

"Well," says the boy, "because it sure as hell wouldn't
be a great loss and it probably wouldn't be an accident

Bush and Cheney are sitting in a small diner in a po-dunk southern town. The waitress comes over, and asks them if they have decided what they want. Cheney orders a burger and fries, but Bush seems to have some trouble deciding. Finally, he looks up from his menu and says to the waitress - "I'll have a quicky!" The waitress is shocked, and storms away. Cheney looks down at his own menu and says, "George - I think it's pronounced quiche"

(well i guess the joke doesn't work unless you tell it aloud, but you get the point :smile: )
