A Humorous Intermission

April 19, 2009 at 11:53 am (Fun) (, )

An old man walked up to the White House from across Pennsylvania Avenue, where he’d been sitting on a park bench. He spoke to the Marine standing guard and said, “I would like to go in and meet with President Bush.” The Marine replied, “Sir, President Bush is no longer in office. He doesn’t live here anymore.” The old man said, “Okay,thank you” and walked away.

The following day, the very same man approached the White House and said to the same Marine, “I would like to go in and meet with President Bush.” The Marine once again told the old man, respectfully, “Sir, as I said yesterday, President Bush is no longer in office and doesn’t live here anymore.” The man thanked him and again walked away.

The third day, the same man approached the White House and spoke to the very same Marine, saying “I would like to go in and meet with President Bush.” The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and said, “Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to President Bush. I’ve told you already that he is no longer in office. He’s never coming back. Don’t you understand?”

The old man answered him, “Oh, I understand perfectly. It just makes me so happy to hear it.”
