President Bush, listening to the advice of his beloved frumpy librarian-wife, featured NBA African Basketball Star Dikembe Mutombo as a hero in his State of the Union Snore.
Bush explained: "Laura said to me one day while we were whacking weeds on the ranch: 'Why don't you invite that nice, big black boy Dick -Kembe to your big speech'. I was confused at first. I wondered how did the bookworm who suggested the goat book know about this huge Black sports star. But I figured liberrians read all sorts of things so why not ...
"Then when she told me that she should interview "that black stallion", I thought she meant Walter Farley, the author of the children's classic by that name...but she meant Mutombo. I was gratified by the interest she was taking in my big speech and so we invited him down to the ranch. Laura insisted on a private session with the big fella and the screams coming from the room did disconcert me a bit. I hadn't heard that girl scream like that since I gave her her first...Oxford English Dictionary.
"Oddly she screamed the same ejaculation: "Dic...you gave me that giant dic...tionary, thank you, thank you! Though this time she never managed to get the 'tionary' part out,just the dic, dic, thank you, thank you, part. Well that dear lady looked so flushed and happy when she came out of that conference I just had to invite her new buddy, Dik (that's what she calls him, she's so cute) to my big speech. I just loved to see her standing next to that huge erect African, her new pal, Dik.
