    tracksuitboy: Ok this joke does imply use of The Four Letter Word That Must Not Be Used; but what the hell - it's a funny joke!

    George Bush met The Queen, and he turns round and says:

    "As I'm the President, I'm thinking of changing how the country is referred to, and I'm thinking that it should be a Kingdom".

    To which the Queen replies, "I'm sorry Mr Bush, but to be a Kingdom, you have to have a King in charge - and you're not a King."

    George Bush thought a while and then said: "How about a Pincipality then?", to which the Queen replied "Again, to be a Principality you have to be a Prince - and you're not a Prince, Mr Bush".

    Bush thought long and hard and came up with "How about an Empire then?" The Queen, getting a little pissed off by now replied " Sorry again, Mr Bush, but to be an Empire you must have an Emperor in
    charge - and you are not an Emperor."

    Before George Bush could utter another word, The Queen said: "I think you're doing quite nicely as a Country".


    Oops sorry!  I received it in my email this morning and thought it was worth sharing.

    Another example of a Brit joke that apparently has Brits the world over laughing their bollocks off.

    As usual, it's gone high over this American's head.

    Doesn't a 'country' need a count?  I'm lost.

    I've often wanted to drown my troubles but I can't get my wife to go swimming.

    It's going over my head too. Maybe I just haven't had enough coffee this morning, but I'm not getting it.

    P.S. A count rules over a county, which we have many of in America despite a serious lack of counts.

    tracksuitboy: Oh come on people!!  Get a grip!!

    Donk! No!  A count does not rule over anything.

    The joke works better when you say it rather than read it!! Blimey, I just about give it away in my introduction to the joke!!

    I don't want to explain it (yet!).  Follow the logic in the joke of shortening Kingdom, Principality.  And then shorten country.

    And yes Pecks, it does have us laughing our bollocks off!

    7x6andchg: Oh I don't know - last time I checked I was probably 5,493,483th in line for the Throne anyway - so my knighting has no power. :D

    Thumper_10x7_CA: LOL Very very funny! I admit it took me a minute or two reciting the punch line but then.... WHAM!! It smacked me in the balls! (not that I'm into that or anything....)
    Very funny, I know I'll be plagerizing that one when I get to work...

    I'm a little closer! My Great Aunt (isn't that an awful title!) is married to a cousin of the Queen Mother. Unfortunately that puts me at only 5,493,482 in line to the throne and doesn't give me any right to shag Prince William. Damn!

    mwellhouse: Oh My God Americans are slow - I'd sussed out the joke after reading the first line, combined with the warning about The Naughty Word. Congrats everyone for not actually using that word; I can't think of anything more offensive in the English language. Except perhaps garlic.

    Sir! Please!  Surely the words The Sun or Rupert Murdoch strike the most terror in to the heart?  Or pop idol, reality tv and, well, Tony!

    Actually I think it may be "Posh n Becks" which would be a good synonym for the c*** word...

    In order to be called "Sir", you have to have the British citizenship. Ronald Reagan was conferred the title of Knight, but he cannot be called (or styled) « Sir » because he is an American citizen.

    The same with a cousin par alliance of my paternal great-grandfather, Roumania, KBE in 1919. No « Sir » for him when in UK.


    PS - Tracksuitboy, ;D brilliant point : but words like The Sun or the biped called Rupert Murdoch strike no terror in my heart, but bring to me tons and tons and tons of disgust. :mad:

    (Mmm .. I think you're right about Posh though! Bitch from Hell!!).
