One of the best jokes to come along:
As Air Force One arrives at the Heathrow Airport, President Obama 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 noses. The fart shakes the coach, but,
the two dignitaries of State do their best to ignore the incident.
The Queen politely turns to President Obama and says:
"Mr President, please, accept my deepest regrets... I am sure you understand there are
some things that even a Queen cannot control."
Obama, 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."
Moral of the story: "Silence is Golden"
