PM of Japan
A few years ago, Japan’s Prime Minister Mori was given some Basic English Conversation training before he visited Washington and met president Bill Clinton.
The instructor told Mori “Prime Minister, when you shake hands with President Clinton, please say ‘how are you’. Then Mr. Clinton will say,” I’m fine, and you?” Now you should say ‘me too’.
Afterwards we, translators, will do all the work for you.”
It looked quite simple, but the truth was…
When Mori met Clinton, he mistakenly said “Who Are You?”.
Mr. Clinton was a bit shocked but still managed to react with humor:
“Well, I am Hilary’s husband, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha.”
Then Mori replied confidently “Me too, hahaha…hahaha…”
Then there was a long silence in the meeting room.

A little boy goes to his dad and asks, “What is politics?”
Dad says, “Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I’m the breadwinner of the family, so let’s call me capitalism.
Your Mom, she’s the administrator of the money, so we’ll call her the Government. We’re here to take care of your needs, so we’ll call you the people.
The nanny, we’ll consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we’ll call him the Future. Now, think about that and see if that makes sense.”
So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what dad had said. Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper. So the little boy goes to his parents’ room and finds his mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny’s room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed.
The next morning, the little boy says to his father, “Dad, I think I Understand the concept of politics now.” The father says, “Good son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about.” The little boy replies, “Well, while Capitalism is screwing the Working Class, the Government is sound asleep, the People are being ignored and the Future is in deep sh*t.”

Letter to God
A little boy wanted USD100 badly and prayed for two weeks but nothing happened. Then he decided to write GOD a letter requesting the USD100. When the postal authorities received the letter addressed to GOD USA, they decided to send it to President Clinton. The President was so impressed, touched, and amused that he instructed his secretary to send the little boy a USD5.00 bill. President Clinton thought this would appear to be a lot of money to a little boy.
The little boy was delighted with the USD5.00 and sat down to write a thank you note to GOD, which read:
Thank you very much for sending the money, however, I noticed that for some reason you had to send it through Washington D.C. and, as usual, those bastards deducted USD 95.00.
