Bless the Queen

  1. At Heathrow Airport, 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 II.

    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 Brits 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."
