  While visiting England, George Bush is invited to tea with the Queen.
  He asks her what her leadership philosophy is. She says that it is to
  surround herself with intelligent people.  He asks how she knows if 
  they're
  intelligent. "I do so by asking them the right questions," says the
  Queen. "Allow me to demonstrate."
  
  She phones Tony Blair and says, "Mr. Prime Minister. Please answer 
  this
  question: "Your mother has a child, and your father has a child,and 
  this
  child is not your brother or sister. Who is it?"
  Tony Blair responds, "It's me, ma'am."
  "Correct. Thank you and good-bye, sir," says the Queen. She hangs up 
  and
  says, "Did you get that, Mr. Bush?"
  "Yes ma'am. Thanks a lot. I'll definitely be using that!"
  
  Upon returning to Washington, he decides he'd better put the Chairman 
  of
  the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to the test. He summons Jesse 
  Helms
  to the White House and says, "Senator Helms, I wonder if you can 
  answer a
  question for me."
  
  "Why, of course, sir. What's on your mind?" "Uhh, your mother has a 
  child,
  and your father has a child, and this child is not your brother or 
  your
  sister. Who is it?"   Helms hems and haws and finally asks, "Can I 
  think
  about it and get back to you?" Bush agrees, and Helms leaves.  Helms
  immediately calls a meeting of other senior Republican senators,and 
  they
  puzzle over the question for several hours, but nobody can come up 
  with an
  answer.
  
  Finally, in desperation, Helms calls Colin Powell at the State 
  Department
  and explains his problem.  "Now look here, son, your mother has a 
  child,
  and your father has a child, and this child is not your brother or 
  your
  sister. Who is it?"  Powell answers immediately, "It's me, of course, 
  you
  idiot."
  
  Much relieved, Helms rushes back to the White House and exclaims, "I 
  know
  the answer, sir! I know who it is! It's Colin Powell!"
  
  And Bush replies in disgust, "Wrong, it's Tony Blair."
