We're Off to See the Wizard!
Presidential aid from the Wizard Of Oz
Four United States Presidents get caught up in a tornado and off they whirled to the land of OZ. They finally made it to the Emerald City and went to find the Great Wizard...
'What brings the 4 of you before the great Wizard of Oz?'
Jimmy Carter stepped forward timidly and said, 'I've come for some courage.'
'No Problem! said the Wizard. Who’s next?' Richard Nixon stepped forward. 'Well, I think I need a heart.'
'Done! says the Wizard. Who comes next before the Great and Powerful Oz?' Up stepped Dubya and said, 'I’m told by the American people that I need a brain.'
'No problem! said the Wizard. Consider it done.' Then there is a great silence in the hall. Bill Clinton is just standing there, looking around... 'Is Dorothy here?'
