“Traveron, get in here!”
The oaken door swung open with a crash, hitting the President of the United States squarely on the nose. After the Secretary of State sincerely apologized, the president asked him a simple question: “How many states do we have?”

“I said, ‘Yes, your highest highness’.”
“Oh. What were we talking about?”

“No; I added an ‘oh’.”
“Oh. I know this is totally off subject,” said President Gourdeater, “but call up the President of Russia immediately and tell him I have more hair than him.”
“Yes sir.”
