A source inside the White House said that in honor of the Queen's visit, the President saved his best fart joke for their white-tie state dinner. The President's mother, Barbara Bush, in attendance, apologized afterwards to Her Majesty and said that she had hoped her son would behave himself.
"He's a good boy, but sometimes I have to separate him from the other boys," said Mrs. Bush. "I think Karl and Dick are a bad influence."
As the state dining room brimmed with white roses, vermeil centerpieces and pearl-handled flatware, the Queen replied tartly, "Then give him a time out. Flatulent humor is not my cup of tea."
Since no one would repeat the joke, it is said that the producers of "The Aristocrats" are already working on a documentary about it and will interview many of the state dinner attendees.
