John F. Kerry meets with the Queen of England. He asks her, "Your

Majesty, how do you run such an efficient government? Are there any

tips you can give to me?" "Well," says the Queen, "the most important

thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people."

 

Kerry frowns. "But how do I know the people around me are really

intelligent?" The Queen takes a sip of tea. "Oh, that's easy. You just

ask them to answer an intelligence riddle." The Queen pushes a button

on her intercom. "Please send Tony Blair in here, would you?"

 

Tony Blair walks into the room. "Yes, my Queen?"

 

The Queen smiles. "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 answers, "That would be me."

 

"Yes! Very good," says the Queen.

 

Back at the White House, Kerry asks to speak with vice president John

Edwards. "John, 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," says the vice president. "Let me get back to you on

that one."

 

John Edwards goes to his advisors and asks every one, but none can

give him an answer. Finally, he ends up in the men's room and

recognizes Colin

Powell's shoes in the next stall. John shouts, "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 yells back, "That's easy. It's me!"

 

John Edwards smiles. "Thanks!"

 

Edwards goes back to the Oval Office to speak with Kerry. "Say, I did

some research and I have the answer to that riddle. It's Colin Powell."

 

Kerry gets up, stomps over to John Edwards , and angrily yells into his

face, "No, you idiot! It's Tony Blair!"
