While visiting England, George Bush is invited to tea with the HRH The Queen.

President Bush asks her majesty’s what her “real” leadership philosophy is. HRH replies that it is quite simply to surround herself with intelligent people. President Bush then asks how she knows if they’re truly intelligent” I usually do so by asking them the right questions,” says the Queen. “Allow me to demonstrate.”

She then phones Tony Blair and says, “Mr. Prime Minister, please answer this question: Your mother has a child, and your father has a child, and this child is not your brother or sister. Who is it?”

Tony Blair immediately responds ,”Certainly, the child would be me, ma’am.”

“Correct. Thank you and good-bye, Mr. Prim Minister” says the Queen. She hangs up and says,

“Did you get that, Mr. President?” “Yes, your Majesty. Thanks a lot. I’ll definitely be using that one!”

Upon returning to Washington, President Bush decides he had better put the Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to the test. He summons Jesse Helms to the White House and says:

“Senator Helms, I wonder if you can answer a question for me.”

“Why, of coahse, Mistah President”… What’s on yoah mind?”

“Uhh,” says President Bush, “your mother has a child, and your father has a child, and this child is not your brother or your sister. Who is it?”

Helms hems and haws and finally asks:

“Can Ah think that ovah, Mistah President, and get back to you on it?”

Bush agrees, and Helms leaves. Helms immediately calls a meeting of other senior Republican senators, and they proceed to puzzle over the question for several hours, but nobody can come up with an answer. Finally, in desperation, Helms calls Colin Powell at the State Department and explains his problem. Senator Helms poses the question as follows:

“Now lookee heah, Collin, yoah mothah has a child, and yoah fathah has a child, and this child is not yoah brothah or yoah sistah. Who is it?”

Powell answers immediately, “It’s me, of course, you dumb cracker.”

Much relieved, Senator Helms rushes back to the White House and exclaims:

“Mistah President! Ah know the ansuh! Ah know who it is! It’s Collin Powell!”

President Bush replies in total disgust: “Wrong, you idiot, it’s Tony Blair!
