Gratuitous George Bush joke

One sunny day in 2009 an old man approached the White  House from across Pennsylvania  Avenue, where he'd been sitting on a park  bench.

He spoke to the U.S. Marine standing guard  and said, "I would like to go in and meet with President  Bush."

The  Marine looked at the man and said, "Sir, Mr. Bush  is no longer president and no longer resides  here."

The old man said, "Okay" and walked  away.

The following day, the same man approached  the White House and said to the same Marine, "I would like to  go in and meet with President Bush."

The Marine again told the man, "Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Bush is no longer  president  and no longer resides here."

The man thanked him and, again, just walked away.

The third  day, the same man approached the White House and spoke to the  very same U. S. Marine, saying "I would like to go in and meet with President Bush."

The Marine, understandably  agitated at this point, looked at the man and said, "Sir, this  is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak  to Mr. Bush. I've told you already that Mr. Bush is no longer the president and no longer resides here.  Don't  you understand?"

The old man looked at the Marine and  said, "Oh, I understand.  I just love hearing  it."

The Marine snapped to attention, saluted, and  said, "See you tomorrow."

  1. The author of this joke must be from the USSR. There was an old soviet joke - actually it appeared before the USSR collapsed, in anticipation - about a man who keeps asking for Pravda newspaper at a newsstand, and they keep saying: Pravda is no longer published, there is no USSR... so finally he says: just say it again, I love hearing it...
