Churchill Was Given To Reading In The Bathtub And, While Staying At The White House

HomeFortune CookiesMiscellaneous Collections

Churchill was given to reading in the bathtub and,
while staying at the White House, he once became so
engrossed in an account of the Battle of Fonteney that he
forgot President Roosevelt was due to drop by to discuss the
upcoming conference in Yalta. At the appointed hour, the
President was wheeled into Churchill's quarters only to be
informed that the Prime Minister had not finished bathing.
Roosevelt was about to apologize for the intrusion and
depart when Churchill, puffing his customary cigar, strode
into the room stark naked and greeted the nonplussed world
leader with a terse, "What are you staring at, homo?"
