Little Johnny meets Barack Obama...

Barack Obama was visiting a primary school in
North Carolina and he visited a fourth grade class.
They were in the middle of a discussion related to
words and their meanings.

The teacher asked the president if he would like to
lead the discussion on the word 'tragedy.'

So our illustrious president asked the class for
an example of a 'tragedy.'

One little boy stood up and offered: "If my best friend,
who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a tractor
runs him over and kills him, that would be a tragedy."

"No," said Obama, "that would be an accident."

A little girl raised her hand: "If a school bus carrying
50 children drove off a cliff, killing everyone,
that would be a tragedy."

"I'm afraid not," explained Obama.
"That's what we would call great loss."

The room went silent. No other child volunteered.
Obama searched the room. "Isn't there someone
here who can give me an example of a tragedy?"

Finally at the back of the room, Little Johnny raised his hand.
The teacher held her breath.

In a quiet voice he said: "If the plane carrying you
and Mrs. Obama was struck by a 'friendly fire' missile
and blown to smithereens that would be a tragedy."

"Fantastic!" exclaimed Obama. "That's right.
And can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?"

"Well," says Johnny, "It has to be a tragedy, because
it sure as hell wouldn't be a great loss... and you can
bet your ass it wouldn't be an accident either!"

The teacher fainted!
