The Queens Riddle


Barrack Obama meets with the Queen of England. He asks her,
"Your
Majesty, how do you run such an efficient government? Are
there any
tips you can give to me?"

"Well," says the Queen, "the most important
thing is to surround
yourself with intelligent people."

Obama frowns "But how do I know the people around me
are really intelligent?"

The Queen takes a sip of tea. "Oh, that's easy.
You just ask them to
answer an intelligent riddle."

The Queen pushes a button on her intercom. "Please
send Tony Blair in
here, would you?"

Tony Blair walks into the room. "Yes, my
Queen?" The Queen smiles.
"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 answers,
"That would be me."

"Yes! Very good," says the Queen.

Obama goes back home to ask Joe Biden, his vice president,
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," says Biden. "Let me get
back to you on that one." He
goes to his advisors and asks every one, but none can give
him an
answer. Finally, he ends up in the men's room and
recognizes Colin
Powell's shoes in the next stall.

Biden asks 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 yells back, "That's
easy. It's me!"

Biden smiles, and says, "Thanks!" Then, he goes
back to speak with Obama.

"Say, I did some research and I have the answer to
that riddle. It's
Colin Powell."

Obama gets up, stomps over to Biden, and angrily yells into
his face,
"No, you idiot! It's Tony Blair!"

That is funny. Here's an even funnier one, except is wasn't meant to be a joke. If you listen carefully, many in the audience politely laughed at what they thought was a joke. In a way, they were right!

What is funny is that the original of this joke was about Bush. Tony Blair ended his run as PM in 2007.

The joke is older than that even. I first remember it about Clinton/Gore.

Uncle Bill heard the joke when it was about Millard Fillmore. ;-)

Colin Powell must be a lot older then he looks.
