Dead Presidents

To lighten the atmosphere, we hereby present a joke. Comes courtesy of Scott Horton’s great No Comment daily news summary. It is best to read the Presidents’ lines out loud in a basso ghost voice.

One night, George W. Bush was tossing restlessly in his White House bed. He awakened to see George Washington standing beside him.

Bush asked him, “George, what’s the best thing I can do to help the country?”

“Set an honest and honorable example, just as I did,” Washington advised, and then faded away…

The next night, Bush was astir again, and saw the ghost of Thomas Jefferson moving through the darkened bedroom.

Bush called out, “Tom, please! What is the best thing I can do to help the country?”

“Respect the Constitution, as I did,” Jefferson advised, and dimmed from sight…

The third night sleep still did not come for Bush. He awakened to see the ghost of FDR hovering over his bed.

Bush whispered, “Franklin, what is the best thing I can do to help the country?”

“Help the less fortunate, just as I did,” FDR replied and faded into the mist…

Bush wasn’t sleeping well the fourth night when he saw another figure moving in the shadows. It was the ghost of Abraham Lincoln.

Bush pleaded, “Abe, what is the best thing I can do right now to help the country?”

Lincoln replied, “Go see a play.”
