Einstein, Picasso, and Bush At The Pearly Gates

>George W. Bush, Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso have all died. > >Due to a glitch in the mundane/celestial time-space continuum, all three arrive at the Pearly Gates more or less simultaneously, even though their deaths have taken place decades apart. > >The first to present himself to Saint Peter is Einstein. Saint Peter questions him. "You look like Einstein, but you have NO idea the lengths certain people will go to, to sneak into Heaven under false pretenses. Can you prove who you really are?" > >Einstein ponders for a few seconds and asks, >"Could I have a blackboard and some chalk?" Saint Peter complies with a snap of his fingers. The blackboard and chalk instantly appear. Einstein proceeds to describe with arcane mathematics and symbols his special theory of relativity. > >Saint Peter is suitably impressed. "You really *are* Einstein! Welcome to heaven!" > The next to arrive is Picasso. Once again Saint Peter asks for his credentials. Picasso doesn't hesitate. "Mind if I use that blackboard and chalk?" Saint Peter says, "Go ahead." > >Picasso erases Einstein's scribbles and proceeds to sketch out a truly stunning mural. Bulls,satyrs, nude women: he captures their essences with but a few strokes of the chalk. Saint Peter claps. "Surely you are the great artist you claim to be! Come on in!" > The last to arrive is George W. Bush. Saint Peter scratches his head. "Einstein and Picasso both managed to prove their identity. How can you prove yours?" > >George W. looks bewildered, "Who are Einstein and Picasso?" > >Saint Peter sighs, "Come on in, George."

Even as a 'religously' Republican I enjoyed the joke. But then, I just now got the Sheepish's one on the 'What do you leave your kids' thread. Must be a recessive blonde gene.

OK, Ken, then maybe you can explain Sheepish's joke to me, please. Apparently, you're not the only blonde around here. :)

-- Laura Jensen (lrjensen@nwlink.com), January 08, 2001.

Well, I'm blonde, and *I* don't get it! Okay...I was just responding to "What should you leave your kids" and it occurred to me that Geo. Bush Sr. might have thought that he should leave the Presidency to his son, Geo. W. Bush. You can sort of take it from there....Not nearly as funny as this joke, though...

For sheepish - Subtlety is at it's best when it requires being savored, slowly and luxuriously.

Ken-it's more likely it's just that pesky y chromasome that's giving you fits.

Julie-Enjoyed the joke.I was watching the cabinet selection process.For a while there,the thought that came to me was "dead men walking" I sure hoping his dad's cronies don't kick the bucket before fours years are up. Who will run the country then?

Yeah,I'm still bitter...and scared,too.

I thought Gore handled the electorate certification dissenters on Sat with dignity,and even some comic relief.Too bad he didn't show as well on the campaign trail.Had to go keep reinventing himself. What are you always told? Stick with what you know.
