George W. Bush has broken his silence on the poll where 77% of American's claimed he was behind the sinking of Titanic.
In a rare interview since leaving his post at the White House, Bush responded to the allegations that he, in 1912, arranged for an enormous iceberg to be dragged into Titanic's path whilst he sat and giggled in a rowing boat.
"The accusations are simply ridiculous" stated Bush. "I don't even own a rowing boat."
Mr. Bush then went on to give his views on why he thinks the majority his fellow countrymen voted the way they did in the poll supported by Princeton University.
"I really don't know. But it's pretty stupid. I mean think about it. Why would I drag an iceberg into the path of a submarine? It wouldn't work." After being informed Titanic wasn't a submarine, Mr. Bush enquired, "Well what was it doing on ocean floor?" After then being informed it hit an iceberg and sank, Mr. Bush, after a long pause, spluttered out, "Oh geez. That's unfortunate... Well...at least nobody died!"
