    At his meeting with Queen Elizabeth last night, George W. Bush
    turned to the Queen and said:
    "As I'm the President, I'm thinking of changing how my great country
    is referred to, and I'm thinking that it should be a Kingdom."
    The Queen replied, "I'm sorry Mr. Bush, but to be a Kingdom, you
    have to have a King in charge - and you're not a King."


    George Bush thought a while and then said: "How about a Principality
    then?"
    To which the Queen replied, "Again, to be a Principality you have to
    be a Prince - and you're not a Prince, Mr. Bush."


    George thought long and hard and came up with "How about an Empire
    then?"
    The Queen, getting a little annoyed by now, replied : "Sorry again,
    Mr. Bush, but to be an Empire you must have an Emperor in charge -
    and you are not an Emperor."


    Before George W could utter another word, The Queen said: "I think
    you're doing quite nicely as a Country."

    Ridgey is about as humourous as a bout of cancer.

    its not my fault your joke had holes so big that even Zorba and Roach tied together for a 3 legged race could fall through.
