Brazilians and Brazilians

An e-mail I received:

Donald Rumsfeld is giving the President his daily briefing. He concludes by saying: “Yesterday, 3 Brazilian soldiers were killed.”
“OH NO!” the President exclaims. “That’s terrible!”
His staff sits in stunned silence–shocked at this uncharacteristic display of emotion–nervously watching as the President sits slumped in his chair with his head in his hands.
Finally, the President looks up and asks, “How many is a brazillion?”

  1. An oldie but goodie, received in email earlier today:

    A commuter, on his way home from work in Washington, D.C., came to a dead halt in traffic and thought to himself, “Wow, this traffic seems worse than usual.”

    He noticed a police officer walking between the lines of stopped cars, so he rolled down his window and said, “Officer,what’s the hold-up?”

    The officer replied,”President Bush is depressed, so he stopped his motorcade and is threatening to douse himself with gasoline and set himself on fire. He says no one believes his stories about why we went to war in Iraq, or the worsening deficit and economy, or that his tax cuts won’t help anyone except his wealthy friends. So we’re taking up a collection for him.”

    “How much have you got so far?”

    The officer replied, “About four gallons, but a lot of folks are still siphoning.”
