REALLY GOOD! A new take on an old joke.

                                Lil Johnny Meets Barack

                                 Barack Obama was visiting a primary school
and he visited one of the classes. They were in the middle of a discussion
related to words and their meanings. The teacher asked the president if he
would like to lead the discussion on the word 'tragedy'. So our illustrious
president asked the class for an example of a 'tragedy'.

                                 One little boy stood up and offered: "If my
best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a tractor runs
over him and kills him, that would be a tragedy."

                                "No,' said Obama, 'that would be an
accident."

                                 A little girl raised her hand: "If a school
bus carrying 50 children drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that
would be a tragedy."

                                 "I'm afraid not,' explained Obama.
                                 'That's what we would call great loss."

                                 The room went silent. No other children
volunteered. Obama searched the room. "Isn't there someone
here who can give me an example of a tragedy?"

                                 Finally, at the back of the room, Little
Johnny raised his hand. In a quiet voice he said: "If the plane carrying you
and Mrs. Obama was struck by a 'friendly fire' missile and blown to
smithereens, that would be a tragedy."

                                 "Fantastic!' exclaimed Obama. 'That's
right. And can you tell me why that would be tragedy?"

                                 "Well,' says Johnny, 'It has to be a
tragedy, because it sure as hell wouldn't be a great
loss....and you can bet your ass it's probably not
an accident either."

"Fantastic!' exclaimed Obama.
