Hussein is touring in the United States [yes,
this does seem quite implausible] and meets up
with President Bush at the White House. They discuss
current events and then Saddam says to Bush, "You
know this United States...It is a remarkable country!
Everywhere I go I see large pictures of myself
on walls and windows and all of them say, 'Hooray,
For Saddam Hussein!' I must have seen hundreds
of these pictures everywhere praising me." Bush
scratches his head and thinks for moment how this
could be and then says to Saddam, "You know the
last time I toured your country I too noticed
pictures of myself on windows and buildings everywhere."
"Okay," replied Hussein,
"But what did they say?"
"I don't know," replied
Bush, "I couldn't read them. I don't read Hebrew."
