The Queen's Riddle
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
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, 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, 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
Finally, Biden ran into Newt Gingrich out eating one night. Biden
Asked, "Newt, 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?"
Gingrich answered right 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's Newt Gingrich!"
Obama got up, stomped over to Biden, and angrily yelled into his
Face, "No! You idiot! It's Tony Blair!"
AND THAT IS PRECISELY WHAT'S GOING ON AT THE WHITE HOUSE.
