image for Why Kurds don't mix with Rice and Turkey
The Kurds wanted a Sandy Berger but the Americans sent a portion of Rice by mistake

The head of Iraq's Kurdish regional government has refused to meet with the US secretary of state Condoleezza Rice. US politicians have accused the Kurds of shunning her due to American support for Turkish bombing of Kurdish terrorist camps. However, Massoud Barzani denied this, saying:

"We didn't order any Rice, thank you, and we certainly aren't paying for it. We wanted a Sandy Berger with fries."

The reply has confounded politicians in Washington, though a political gourmet has suggested:

"Barzani may have thought he was calling White Castle but got put through to the White House instead. The mix-up with the turkey was unfortunate."

A spokesman for White Castle said that Barzani may have ordered from an old menu, because the fast food chain withdrew the Sandy Berger from all outlets in 2005, when it was found to contain traces of nuts and classified information. The White House has insisted that it offers no Burgers and can only provide Rice. However, it insisted that a portion of Rice can be very satisfying.

This wouldn't be the first culinary confusion in history. In 1939, Adolf Hitler said that he was hungry and his generals, mishearing him, invaded Hungary and Poland, thereby starting World War 2.
