Air Force One arrives at Heathrow and President Bush strides to a warm and dignified handshake from the Queen.They ride in a 1934 Bentley to the edge of central London where they board a magnificent 17th century carriage hitched to 6 magnificent white horses. They ride towards Buckingham Palace waving to the thousands of cheering Britons,all is going well. Suddenly the right rear horse lets fly with the most horrendous earth shattering fart ever heard in the British Empire and the smell was excruciating, both of them had to use handkerchiefs over their noses.The fart shakes the coach but the two dignitaries of state do their best to ignore the incident. The Queen turns to President Bush, "Mr President please accept my regrets... I am sure you understand there are some things that even a Queen cannot control."
George Bush, always trying to be "presidential", replies. "Your Majesty do not give the matter another thought... If you had not mentioned it I
would have thought it was one of the horses."
