From America With Love

George Bush visited the Queen of England, and asked her, "Your Majesty,  you've been a ruling monarch almost all my life, and I'm impressed. Do you mind if I ask you a question?  How do you run such an efficient government? Are there any tips you can give me?"
 
"Well," said the Queen, "the most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people."
 
 Bush frowned, "But how do I know the people around me are really intelligent?"
 
 The Queen took a sip of tea, then replied, "Oh, that's easy. You just ask them to answer an intelligence riddle.  I'll show you."
 
 
She then pushed a button on her intercom. "Please send The Prime Minister in here, would you?"
 
Tony Blair walked into the room. "Your Majesty . . . ."
The Queen smiled and said, "Answer me this, please, Tony. Your mother and father have a child.  It is not your brother and it is not your sister. Who is it?"
 
 Without pausing for a moment, Blair answered, "That would be me!"
 
 "Yes! Very good!," said the Queen.
 
 Back at the White House, Bush called Vice President Dick Cheney to the Oval Office. "Dick, answer this for me. Your mother and your father have a child. It's not your brother and it's not your sister. Who is it?"
 
"I'm not sure," replied the Vice President. "Let me get back to you on that one."Dick Cheney went to his advisers and asked every one of them, but none could give him an answer.  With that he went to the Men's room. Recognizing Colin Powell's shoes in the next stall, Cheney shouted, "Colin!  Can you answer this for me? Your mother and father have a child and it's not your brother or your sister. Who is it?"
 
Powell yelled back, "That's easy. It's me!"
 
Dick Cheney smiled. "Thanks!"
 
Cheney went back to the Oval Office and asked to speak with Bush. "George, I did some research and I have the answer to that riddle. It's Colin Powell."
Bush got up from his desk, stomped over to Cheney, and angrily yelled into his face, "No, you idiot!  It's Tony Blair!"
