The Riddle


from bonz over at gcp …

Barack Obama met with the Queen of England. He asked her, “Your Majesty, how do you run such an efficient government? Are there any tips you can give to me?”

”Well,” said the Queen, “the most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people.”

Obama frowned, and then asked, “But how do I know the people around me are really intelligent?”

The Queen took a sip of tea. “Oh, that’s easy; you just ask them to answer an intelligent riddle.” The Queen pushed a button on her intercom. ”Please send Tony Blair in here, would you?”

Tony Blair walked into the room and said, “Yes, my Queen?”

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, Tony Blair answered, “That would be me.”

”Yes! Very good,” said the Queen.

Obama went back home to ask Joe Biden, his vice presidential choice the same question. “Joe, 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,” said Biden. “Let me get back to you on that one.” He went to his advisors and asked every one, but none could give him an answer. Finally, he ended up in the men’s room and recognized Colin Powell’s shoes in the next stall.

Biden asked Powell, “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?”

Colin Powell yelled back, “That’s easy, it’s me!”

Biden smiled, and said, “Thanks!”

Then, he went back to speak with Obama. “Say, I did some research and I have the answer to that riddle. It is Colin Powell!”

Obama got up, stomped over to Biden, and angrily yelled into his face,
”No! you idiot! It’s Tony Blair!”

  1. That’s a good’un, it was making the rounds a little while back.

    Have you heard this one?

    A man boarded an airplane and took his seat. As he settled in, he glanced up and saw the most beautiful woman boarding the plane.
    He soon realized she was heading straight towards his seat. As fate would have it, she took the seat right beside his.
    Eager to strike up a conversation he blurted out, ‘Business trip or pleasure?’
    She turned, smiled and said, ‘Business. I’m going to the Annual Nymphomaniacs of America Convention in Boston .’
    He swallowed hard. Here was the most gorgeous woman he had ever seen sitting next to him, and she was going to a meeting of nymphomaniacs.
    Struggling to maintain his composure, he calmly asked!,
    ‘What’s your business role at this convention?’
    ‘Lecturer,’ she responded. ‘I use information that I have learned from my personal experiences to debunk some of the popular myths about sexuality.’
    ‘Really?’ he said. ‘And what kind of myths are there?’
    ‘Well,’ she explained, ‘one popular myth is that African-American men are the most well-endowed of all men, when in fact it is the Native American Indian who is most likely to possess that trait.
    Another popular myth is that Frenchmen are the best lovers, when actually it is men of Jewish descent who are the best.
    I have also discovered that the lover with absolutely the best stamina is the Southern Redneck.’
    Suddenly the woman became a little uncomfortable and blushed.
    ‘I’m sorry,’ she said, ‘I shouldn’t really be discussing all of this with you. I don’t even know your name.’
    ‘Tonto,’ the man said, ‘Tonto Goldstein, but my friends call me Bubba.’
