    The Iranian Ambassador to the UN had just finished giving a speech, and walked out into the lobby where he met President Bush.

    They shook hands, and as they walked the Iranian said, "You know, I have just one question about what I have seen in America.

    President Bush said, "Well, anything I can do to help you, I will."

    The Iranian whispered "My son watches this show 'Star Trek' and in it there is Chekhov who is Russian, Scotty who is Scottish, and Sulu who is Chinese, but no Arabs. My son is very upset and doesn't understand why there aren't any Iranians on Star Trek."

    President Bush laughed, leaned toward the Iranian ambassador, and whispered back, "It's because it takes place in the future."

    Iranians aren't arab; they're Persian. The joke was funnier when it was about Iraqis and the arab statement actually fit.

    True, but out of respect to the Navy AME3 in harm's way that sent it to me, I decided to post it verbatum the way he sent it to me.

    Nope, not at all! I will respect all others at the same level that they give me-no special considerations. I absolutely refuse to be PC!

    Besides, it's a joke?:supergrin:

    Sulu is supposed to be Japanese :tongueout: , as his first name is Hikaru. However, Sulu is a Filipino name. Japanese do not use the consonant "L".

    Some people can't just enjoy the joke. They try to pick it apart.

    I swear it's like being nibbled to death by a duck.

    People who avoid the funny things in life are as miserable as AL GORE when President Bush "STOLD THE ELECTION"

    If you can’t smile at least once a day.
    If you can’t learn at least one thing a day.
    If you can’t try to help someone once a day

    Then I feel bad for your miserable sorry a**
