I just got this in the e-mail from a friend in Texas.Texas RevengeSaddam Hussein and George W. Bush meet up in Baghdad for the first roundof talks in a new peace process. When George sits down, he notices threebuttons on the side of Saddam's chair. They begin talking.After about five minutes Saddam presses the first button. A boxing glove springs out of a box on the desk and punches Bush in the face. Annoyed, Bush carries on talking as Saddam laughs.A few minutes later the second button is pressed. This time a big bootcomes out and kicks Bush in the shin. Again Saddam laughs, and againGeorge carries on talking, not wanting to put off the bigger issue ofpeace between the two countries.But when the third button is pressed and another boot comes out andkicks Bush square in the privates, he's finally had enough.I'm heading' back home!" he calmly tells the Iraqi. "We'll finish thesetalks in two weeks!"A fortnight passes and Saddam flies to the United States for talks. Asthe two men sit down, Hussein notices three buttons on Bush's chair andprepares himself for the Yank's retaliation. They begin talking andGeorge presses the first button. Saddam ducks, but nothing happens.George snickers.A few seconds later he presses the second button. Saddam jumps up, butagain nothing happens. Bush roars with laughter.When the third button is pressed, Saddam jumps up again, but againnothing happens. Bush falls on the floor in a fit of hysterics."Forget this," says Saddam. "I'm going back to Baghdad!"George W. says through tears of laughter, "What Baghdad?"
