George: That's who's name?

Condi: Yes.

George: Will you, or will you not, tell me the name of the new leader of China?

Condi: Yes, sir.

George: Yassir? Yassir Arafat is in China? I thought he's dead in the Middle East.

Condi: That's correct.

George: Then who is in China?

Condi: Yes, sir.

George: Yassir is in China?

George: No, thanks.

Condi: You want Kofi?

George: No.

Condi: You don't want Kofi.

George: No. But now that you mention it, I could use a glass of milk. And then get me the U.N.

Condi: Yes, sir.

George: Not Yassir! The guy at the U.N.

Condi: Kofi?

George: Milk! Will you please make the call?

Condi: And call who?

George: Who is the guy at the U.N?

George: Will you stay out of China?!

Condi: Yes, sir.

George: And stay out of the Middle East! Just get me the guy at the U.N.

Condi: Kofi.

George: All right! With cream and two sugars.

By the way, with a steadily increasing number of Asian players (both Chinese and Korean, as well as Japanese) in the major leagues in baseball, I am waiting for someone to sign a first baseman named Hu. It will happen soon, I am sure. Then you will really have "Hu's on first." (The Dodgers now have a Korean first baseman named Hee Seop Choi.)

Hee's on first, I thought he was on second?

I have to put up my favorite Engineering/Math joke of all time. I had it on my desk for years and used to hand it out to source evaluation boards and contracting officers when they were getting to write up their source selection decisions:
