this was in an email forward to me from Alberto ... i don’t know how long this email has been circulating and maybe everyone’s already seen it, but it was too cute to not post:

Who’s On First—2005 version

George: Condi- Nice to see you! What’s happening?
Condi: Sir, I have the report here about the new leader of China.

George: Great. Lay it on me.
Condi: HU is the new leader of China

George:That’s what I want to know.
Condi: That’s what I’m telling you.

George: That’s what I’m asking you. Who is the new leader of China?
Condi: Yes

George: I mean the fellow’s name
Condi: Hu
George: The guy in China
Condi: Hu
George: The new leader of China
Condi: Hu
George: The main man in China
Condi: Hu is leading China
George: Now, what’re you asking me for??
Condi: I’m telling you—Hu is leading China
George: Well, I’m asking you. Who is leading China??
Condi: That’s the man’s name

George: That’s who’s name??
Condi: Yes

George: Will you, or will you not, tell me the name of the new leader of China?
Condi: Yes, Sir

George: Yassir?? Yassir Arafat is in China?? I thought he was dead, in the middle east.
Condi: That’s correct.
George:Then who is in China?

Condi: No, sir.

George:Then who is?
Condi: Yes, sir

George: Look, Condi; I need to know the name of the new leader in China. Get the Secretary General of the UN on the phone.
Condi: Kofi?

George: No, thanks
Condi: You want Kofi??

George: No
Condi: You don’t want Kofi?

George: No, but now that you mention it, I could use a glass of milk. And then get the UN on the phone.
Condi: Yes, sir
George: Not Yassir ! The guy at the UN
Condi: Kofi ?

George: MILK !! Will you please make the call???
Condi: And call who??

George: Who is the guy at the UN?
Condi: Hu is the guy in China

George: Will you stay out of China??
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: And stay out of the Middle East. Just get me the guy at the UN
Condi: Kofi??

George: ALL RIGHT !! With cream and two sugars.
