Prime Minister Tony Blair
10 Downing Street
Dear Mr. Prime Minister,
First, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you on your smashing “Coalition” Victory! The whole world was “shocked and awed.” Don’t worry about those WMD’s--I know they’ll show up. My theory is Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein are bunkered down together, somewhere deep underground, sitting on the entire WMD stockpile--it’s the only thing that makes sense. So think of it this way, when you catch one, you’ll catch ‘em all. Then the world will be free from terrorism!
I saw you at the G-8 Meeting--you looked a little tired, which is totally understandable--you’ve been under a lot of strain lately. I have a question: I noticed President Bush was wearing an American flag pin on his lapel, but you weren’t. This wasn’t an intentional slight, was it? I mean, our president has made it clear, “You’re with us or you’re against us.”
Maybe your American flag pin got lost at the laundromat or something. That kind of stuff happens all the time. I just want to make sure, because if you’re not wearing our flag, how are we to know for certain if you’re with us or against us? You’re with us, aren’t you, sir?
P.S. You were there--whose English is better: President Bush’s or Prime Minister Chirac’s?
