I have no idea who sent this to me, but it's pretty timely...


Saddam Hussein and Bill Clinton meet up in Baghdad for a round of talks in
a new peace process.  When Bill sits down, he notices three buttons on the
side of Saddam's chair. They begin talking. 

After about five minutes Saddam presses the 1st button.  A boxing glove
springs out of a box on the desk and punches Clinton in the face. 

Confused, Clinton carries on talking as Saddam laughs.  A few minutes
later the 2nd button is pressed.  This time a big boot comes out and kicks
Clinton in the shin.  Again Saddam laughs, and again Clinton carries on
talking, not wanting to put off the bigger issue of peace between the two

But when the 3rd button is pressed and another boot comes out and kicks
Clinton in the privates, he's finally had enough. "I'm going back home!"
he tells the Iraqi. "We'll finish these talks in two weeks!" 

A fortnight passes and Saddam flies to the United States for talks.  As
the 2 men sit down, Hussein notices 3 buttons on Clinton's chair and
prepares himself for the Yank's revenge.

They begin talking and Bill presses the first button.  Saddam ducks, but
nothing happens.  Clinton snickers.  A few seconds later he presses the
second button.  Saddam jumps up, but again nothing happens.  Clinton roars
with laughter.  When the third button is pressed, Saddam jumps up again,
and again nothing happens.  Clinton falls on the floor in a fit of

"Forget this," says Saddam. "I'm going back to Baghdad!"

Clinton says through tears of laughter, "What Baghdad?"
