Intelligent Riddle

Kerry meets with the Queen of England. He asks her,
"Your Majesty,

how do you run such an efficient government? Are there
any tips you can give

to me?"

"Well," says the Queen, "the most important
thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people."
Kerry frowns. "But how do I know the people around
me are really intelligent?"

The Queen takes a sip of tea. "Oh, thats easy.
You just ask them to

answer an intelligent riddle." The Queen pushes
a button on her intercom. "Please send Tony Blair
in here, would you?"

Tony Blair walks into the room. "Yes, my Queen?"
The Queen smiles, "Answer me this, please, Tony.
Your mother and father have a child. It is not your

brother and it is not your sister. Who is it?"
Without pausing for a moment, Tony Blair answers, "That
would be me."

"Yes! Very good," says the Queen.

Kerry goes back home to ask John Edwards, his vice presidential

the same question. "John. Answer this for me. Your
mother and your father have a child.

Its not your brother and its not your sister. Who
is it?"

"Im not sure," says John Edwards. "Let
me get back to you on that one." Edwards goes to
his advisors and asks every one, but none can give him
an answer. Finally, he ends up in the mens room and
recognizes Colin Powells shoes in the next stall. Edwards
shouts, "Colin! Can you answer this for me? Your
mother and father have a child and its not your brother
or your sister.

Who is it?" Colin Powell yells back, "Thats
easy. Its me!" Edwards smiles, and says, "Thanks!"
Then, Edwards goes back to speak with Kerry. "Say,
I did some research and I have the answer to that riddle.
Its Colin Powell."

Kerry gets up, stomps over to John Edwards, and angrily
yells into his face, "No, you idiot! Its Tony
