    2 easy ones:

    Apart from the obvious what does the "W" in George W Bush stand for?

    What do Alexander the Great and Winnie the Pooh have in common?

    You mean besides the word "the" in their names? I know that's too
    obvious; just having some fun.

    I think it is George Walker Bush. Anyone confirm?

    Oh come on, his mother wouldn't have named him Wanker! Actually,
    his father might have made a mistake and accidentally named him
    Wanker, come to think of it...

    I also would not put it past ol' George Bush Snr, though are you sure it
    was an accident...

    I wonder how many of his little malapropisms were really mistakes...
    Could they all be part of some sort of master plan? No, probably not.

    If I remember correctly, I think they both used to bury their heads in
    jars of honey.

    i live in u. s., and i don't like him either!

    while i agree that bush sucks @ss, at elections, there were good reasons to vote for him, for instance, gore wanted to impose stricter gun laws. guns have been baned in UK and austrilia, and in both places violent crime has gone up.

    (no offence to brits, london rules, also no offence to auzzies, aquidnas and platipusses likewise rule.)

    Do really think crime has gone up because no one has guns? If so, how do you explain our high crime rate where guns are readily available vs. their much lower crime rates where guns are banned. I'm not for banning guns in the U.S.A. or anything, but I think we do need stricter laws, to prevent the wrong people from getting their hands on them.

    Given the US voting fiasco, i'm not sure whether you voted for him or not is of any consequence.

    gun regulations, sure, but banning guns, or making them inacsesable to common citizens just garentees that only pepole who don't care about the law to begin with will be able to get them. even if a violent criminal could not get a gun, he would still be able to kill pepole with a knife, but pedestyans can't defend themselves with knives, they dont know how.
