Subject: Bush On The Subject of Tragedy

Written By: Shacks Train on 05/27/08 at 10:18 pm

President Bush was visiting a primary school and he 
visited one of the classes. They were in the middle of a discussion 
related to words and their meanings.

The teacher asked the Bush if he would like to lead the discussion on 
the word 'tragedy'.

So the illustrious leader asked the class for an example of a
'tragedy'.

One little boy stood up and offered: 'If my best friend, who lives on 
a farm, is playing in the field and a tractor runs over him and kills 
him, that would be a tragedy.

'No,' said Bush, 'that would be an accident.'

A little girl raised her hand: 'If a school bus carrying 50 children 
drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy.'

'I'm afraid not,' explained Bush. 'That's what we would call great 
loss.'

The room went silent. No other children volunteered. Bush searched 
the room. 'Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a 
tragedy?'

Finally at the back of the room, Little Johnny raised his hand...

In a quiet voice he said: 'If the plane carrying you and Mrs. Bush 
was struck by a 'friendly fire' missile and blown to smithereens, 
that would be a tragedy.'

'Fantastic!' exclaimed Bush. 'That's right. And can you tell me why 
that would be tragedy?'

'Well,' says the boy, 'It has to be a tragedy, because it certainly 
wouldn't be a great loss.......and it probably wouldn't be a f&%king 
accident either!
