Bush humor is an International language

Jokes about President Bush are funny, right? Mostly because he’s an easy target, and it helps when he brings it on himself. Well Americans don’t have the monopoly on jokes about the President. North Korea is getting in on the act as well.

In a country where a joke about the political leader can get you killed, it seems it’s fair game when it comes to Bush.

During talks between North and South Korean military brass, a North Korean General started his speech by telling a Bush joke.

"I recently read a piece of political humor on the Internet called 'saving the president'," Lieutenant-General Kim Yong-chol was quoted as saying in pool reports from the talks.

He then retold the old yarn about Bush who goes out jogging one morning and, preoccupied with international affairs, fails to notice that a car is heading straight at him.

A group of schoolchildren pull the president away just in time, saving his life, and a grateful Bush offers them anything they want in the world as a reward.

"We want a place reserved for us at Arlington Memorial Cemetery," say the children.

"Why is that?" he asks.

"Because our parents will kill us if they find out what we've done."

No matter what language, or country, this is funny!
