The Queen’s Riddle

Barack Obama met with the Queen of England.

He asked her, “Your Majesty, how do you run such an
efficient government? Are there any tips you can give to me?”

“Well,” said the Queen, “the most important thing is to
surround yourself with intelligent people.”

Obama frowned, and then asked, “But how do I know the
people around me are really intelligent?”

The Queen took a sip of tea. “Oh, that’s easy; you
just ask them to answer an intelligent riddle.” The Queen
pushed a button on her intercom. “Please send Tony Blair
in here, would you?”

Tony Blair walked into the room and said, “Yes, my

The Queen smiled and said, “Answer me this please, Tony.
Your mother and father have a child. It is not your brother
and it is not your sister. Who is it?”

Without pausing for a moment, Tony Blair answered,
“That would be me.”

“Yes! Very good,” said the Queen.

Obama went back home to ask Joe Biden the same question. “Joe, answer this for me. Your mother
and your father have a child.  It’s not your brother and it’s not your
sister. Who is it?”

“I’m not sure,” said Biden. “Let me get back to you on that one.”
He went to his advisors and asked every one, but none could give
him an answer. Finally, he ended up in the men’s room and recognized
Colin Powell’s shoes in the next stall.

Biden asked Powell, “Colin, can you answer this for me?  Your mother
and father have a child and it’s not your brother or your sister. Who is it?”

Colin Powell yelled back, “That’s easy, it’s me!”

Biden smiled, and said, “Thanks!”  Then, he went back to speak with
Obama.  “Say, I did some research and I have the answer to that riddle.
It’s Colin Powell!”

Obama got up, stomped over to Biden, and angrily yelled into his face,
“No! you idiot!  It’s Tony Blair!”

    That’s a funny story – good post!
    Over here in UK when Blair was returning during our general election to help support his old party, a cartoonist did a wonderful picture of the UK with the oil slick approaching (it was just when the BP well had blown). In the oily sea the cartoonist had created Blair’s face and the caption was ‘Oily slick approches UK’. LOL
