Three Buttons

Mullah Mohammed Hasan Akhund, the deputy Taliban leader, and George W.
Bush agree to meet in Kabul for the first round of talks in a new
anti-terrorism process. When George sits down, he notices three buttons on the arm of
Akhund's chair. They begin talking.

After about five minutes Akhund presses the first button. A boxing
glove springs out of a box on the desk and punches Bush in the
face. Annoyed, Bush carries on talking as Akhund laughs. A few
minutes later the second button is pressed. This time a big boot comes out and
kicks Bush in the shin.
Again Akhund laughs, and again George carries on talking, not
wanting to put off the bigger issue of peace between the two countries. But
when the third button is pressed and another boot comes out and kicks
Bush square in the privates, he's finally had enough.

"I'm headin' back home!" he calmly tells the Afghan. "We'll finish
these talks in Washington in two weeks!"

A fortnight passes and Akhund flies to the United States for talks.
As the two men sit down, Akhund notices three buttons on Bush's
chair arm and prepares himself for the Texan's retaliation.
They begin talking and George presses the first button. Akhund
ducks, but nothing happens. George snickers but they continue talking. A
few minutes later he presses the second button. Akhund jumps up, but
again nothing happens. Bush roars with laughter. They continue the talks but
when the third button is pressed, Akhund jumps up again, but again nothing
Bush falls on the floor in a fit of hysterics.
"Forget this," says Akhund. "I'm going back to Afghanistan!"
George W. says, through tears of laughter, "What Afghanistan??"
