Rishton Press Agency, 23 Sep 2003 -

President Bush of America and President Chirac of France met at the UN today. Chirac's objective was to mend the rift that had developed over the Iraq war. Bush was lusting for revenge.

At breakfast they were sharing a crisp baguette. President Bush finds it too hard and its shape too embarrassing. So he takes a piece of chewing gum instead.

He asks President Chirac: "You Frogs (or was it Pakis?), when you eat bread, do you eat all of it?"

"Mais oui! Of course! Coa-coa."

"Well," says Bush proudly, "we only eat the soft part of it. The rest we collect in containers, take it to a factory and put it through a mill. What comes out we turn into cream-crackers that we sell in France."

"And what about steaks?" Bush continues. "Do you eat all parts of them?"

"Bien sûr! We do," replies Chirac.

"You don't say!" says Bush, grinning as only he can. "We don't! We only eat the lean part of the steak. The fatty part we collect in containers, take it to a factory, put it through a mill, and turn it into mad beefburgers that we sell in France."

Now Mrs Chirac gets tetchy. So she asks, "And what do Americans do with their French letters when they have done with them, coa-coa, coa-coa?"

"Hey man, we throw them out of the car window, of course," says Mrs Bush.

"Bon!" exclaims Mrs Chirac. "We collect them in containers, take them to a factory and put them through a mill. What comes out is protein-enriched chewing gum that we sell to Americans!"
