Elizabeth and George... LOL!! ;)

At Heathrow Airportin England, a 300-foot red carpet was
stretched out to Air Force One and President Bush strode to
a warm but dignified handshake from Queen Elizabeth II.

They rode in a silver 1934 Bentley to the edge of central
London where they boarded an open 17th century coach hitched
to six magnificent white horses.

As they rode toward Buckingham Palace, each looking to their
side and waving to the thousands of cheering Britons lining
the streets, all was going well. This was indeed a glorious
display of pageantry and dignity.

Suddenly the scene was shattered when the right rear horse
let rip the most horrendous, earth-shattering, eye-smarting
blast of flatulence and the coach immediately filled with
noxious fumes.

Uncomfortable, but maintaining control, the two dignitaries
did their best to ignore the whole incident, but then the
Queen decided that was a ridiculous manner with which to
handle a most embarrassing situation.

She turned to Mr. Bush and explained, "Mr. President, please
accept my regrets. I'm sure you understand that there are
some things even a Queen cannot control."

George W., ever the Texas gentleman, replied, "Your Majesty,
please don't give the matter another thought. You know, if
you hadn't said something I would have assumed it was one of
the horses."
