President Bush is representing the United States of America on a highly formal, orchestrated State visit to England. Air Force One stops at a bright red carpet, along which the President
strides to join Queen Elizabeth, II in a beautiful, ornate 17th-Century coach hitched to
six enormous, matched white horses.
The coach proceeds through the streets of London en
route to Buckingham Palace, with the Queen and the President waving to the cheering throngs.
Then, suddenly, the right rear horse produces a thunderous, cataclysmic fart that
reverberates through the air and rattles the doors of the coach.
Uncomfortable, the reaction of the two powerful figures is to focus their attentions
elsewhere and behave as if nothing extraordinary had happened. But, the Queen is the first
to realize that ignoring what had just happened is ridiculous.
She explains, “Mr. President, please accept my regrets - I’m sure you understand that
there are some things that even a Queen cannot control.”
President Bush replies, “Your Majesty, please don’t give the matter another thought - you know, if you hadn’t said something, I would have thought it was one of the horses!”
