Queen Elizabeth & President Bush:

At Heathrow, a 300-foot long red carpet is stretched
out to Air Force One
and Mr. Bush strides to a warm but dignified
handshake from Queen Elizabeth

They ride in a silver 1934 Bentley limousine to the
edge of central London
where they board an open 17th century coach hitched
to six magnificent white
matching horses. As they ride toward Buckingham
Palace, each looking
sideways and waving to the thousands of cheering
Britons lining the streets,
all is going well.

But suddenly the right rear horse lets fly with the
most horrendous,
earth-rending, eye-smarting blast of gastronomic
flatulence ever heard in
the British Empire, including Bermuda, Tortola and
the Falkland Islands. It
shakes the coach.

Uncomfortable, but under control, the two dignitaries
of state do their best
to ignore the whole incident, but then the Queen
decides that's ridiculous.

She turns to Mr. Bush and explains, "Mr. President,
please accept my
regrets....I'm sure you understand that there are
some things that even a
Queen cannot control."

George W. Bush, ever the gentleman, replies, "Your
Majesty, please don't
give the matter another thought......You know, if you
hadn't said something,
I would have thought it was one of the horses."
