Joke: The last laugh

              UNSCOM Inspections With A Twist Of Buttons!!

     President Clinton visits Saddam Hussein to talk about the UNSCOM
inspections in Iraq.  As he sits down he sees three buttons in the armrest
Saddam's chair.  When Saddam sits down, Clinton immediately asks, "Why the
three buttons in your armrest?"
     "You'll see," says Saddam.
     After 10 minutes Saddam presses the first button, and WHACK a boxing
glove hits Clinton in the face.  Clinton grabs his nose, while Saddam just
     Clinton manages to remain calm until, after another 10 minutes, Saddam
presses the second button, and another boxing glove hits Clinton in the
stomach.  While Clinton is gasping for air, Saddam falls out of his chair
     Clinton is highly annoyed by now, but remains outwardly calm.  After
another 5 minutes, Saddam presses the third button, and from under the table
another boxing glove hits Clinton, this time right in the crotch.
     Clinton is really fed up now and breaks off the talks.  "We'll continue
this next week in the White House," says the President.
     Saddam, has tears in his eyes from laughing, and can only nod in
     As agreed, Clinton receives Saddam in the Oval Office a week later, and
as Saddam sits down, he sees three buttons in the armrest of Clinton's
     As the meeting goes on, Saddam sees Clinton press the first button and
immediately ducks, but nothing happens.  This doesn't stop Clinton from
laughing ... really loud!
     Clinton continues where he left off, and after a few minutes presses
second button.  Saddam again reacts instinctively, and jumps up to avoid
whatever is coming.  Again absolutely nothing happens, and this time it's
Clinton who falls out of his chair from laughing.  Saddam is totally
bewildered, and wonders what the hell is happening?!
     But no harm has come to him, so he retakes his seat and the talks
     After a few more minutes, Clinton presses the third button.  This time,
Saddam doesn't even flinch, but stays in his chair as though nothing unusual
is taking place.  Clinton, however, is rolling on the floor, doubled up from
     Saddam is not only bewildered... now he is angry.  He springs to his
and shouts, "I've had enough of this, I'm going back to Baghdad!"
     Through tears of laughter, Clinton says, "Baghdad? .... what Baghdad?!"
