    President George Bush was visiting an elementary school today and he visited one of the classes. The students are in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings. The teacher asked the President if he would like to lead the class in the discussion of the word, “tragedy.”
    So the illustrious leader asked the class for an example of a “tragedy.”
    One little boy stands up and offers, “If my best friend, who lives next door, is
    playing in the street and a car comes along and runs him over, that would be a tragedy.”
    “No,” says Bush, “that would be an ACCIDENT.”
    A little girl raises her hand: “If a school bus carrying 50 children drove off a cliff, killing everyone involved, that would be a “tragedy.”
    “I’m afraid not,” explains Mr. President. “That’s what we would call a GREAT LOSS.”
    The room goes silent. No other children volunteered.
    President Bush searches the room. “Isn’t there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?”
    Finally, way in the back of the room, a small boy raises his hand.
    In a quiet voice he says, “If Air Force One, carrying Mr. Bush, was struck by a missile and blown up to smithereens, by a terrorist like Osama bin Laden, that would be a tragedy.”
    “Fantastic,” exclaims Bush, “that’s right. And can you tell me WHY that would be a TRAGEDY?”
    “Well,” says the boy, “because it wouldn’t be an accident, and it certainly wouldn’t be a great loss.”

    The President is getting off the helicopter in front of the White House. He has a baby pig under each arm. The Marine guard snaps to attention, salutes, and says: “Nice pigs, sir.”
    The President replies: “These are not pigs, these are authentic Texan Razorback Hogs. I got one for VP Cheney, and I got one for Defense Secretary Rumsfeld.”
    The Marine again snaps to attention, salutes, and replies, “Nice trade, sir.”
