Tony Blair resigned as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Great Britain. The announcement caused mixed reactions from the world political community and great sorrow at the White House.
"Tony Quit!" said President Bush when he heard. "Why'd he go off and do that! Observers said that the President was visibly moved to tears and turned away to cry.
"The Prime Minister has been very helpful in protecting the friendship between our two great countries during his ten years in office and I will miss him greatly." At this point, the President produced a tissue and wiped his eyes.
Then, in typical "Dubya" fashion, he changed the subject. "Has anyone seen the new Transformers movie? It looks awesome! Mommy said she'll make a special flight to Washington next week just to take me and I can even get a popcorn all to myself and don't have to share it with anybody and I can have extra butter if I want!"
