I’m not posting because I’ve been thrown into a bit of a panic. I’ll post the reason later tonight.
But I was looking through the humor folder at work for something a friend asked me to find for him, and I stumbled across this…
I don’t know whether this falls under a joke, a time capsule, irony, satire, political commentary, proof against revisionists, or what…
The President is meeting with Saddam Hussein regarding the recent
crisis. They are meeting in Hussein’s Baghdad capital, and halfway
through the meeting Hussein hits a button on his armrest. A fake arm
flies out and hits Clinton in the face.
A little while later he hits another button and Clinton ducks, only to
be kicked in the butt. A while later, this happens again. Clinton is
angry, calls a break, and they decide to meet again later, in
When Hussein comes to DC, they sit in Clinton’s office. A few minutes
into the discussions, Clinton hits a button, Hussein ducks, but
nothing happens. A few minutes later, Clinton hits another button, Hussein
ducks again, but still nothing happens. This happens a third time, and
Hussein, by this point, is angry and paranoid.
He gets up and shouts “Enough of this! I’m going back to Baghdad!”
Clinton looks up and displays a funny-looking smirk to the Iraqi
leader. Then quite calmly replies, “What Baghdad?”
