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
replied Hussein, "But what did they say?"
"I don't know,"
replied Bush, "I couldn't read them.
I don't read Hebrew."
