Clinton visits Saddam Hussein to talk about the weapon-inspections in Iraq.
As he sits down he sees three buttons in the arm-rest of the chair of
Saddam. When Saddam sits down, Clinton immediately asks, "Why are there
three buttons in your arm-rest?'
'You'll see' replies Saddam.
They start the talks, but after 10 minutes Saddam presses the first
button, and 'WHACK' a boxing glove hits Clinton in the face, Clinton grabs
his nose, while Saddam is laughing himself silly. Clinton remains calm
because he doesn't want this to affect the talks.
After another 10 minutes, Saddam presses the 2nd button and another boxing
glove hits Clinton in the stomach. While Clinton is gasping for air,
Saddam falls out of his chair from laughing. Clinton gets annoyed by now,
but still remains outwardly calm.
They resume the talk, but after 5 minutes Saddam presses the final button,
and from under the table another boxing glove hits Clinton, right in the
groin. Clinton is really fed up by it now and stands up to leave. "We'll
continue this talk next week in the White House" says the President.
Saddam, choking from laughing, is too proud to say no, so the appointment
A week later Clinton receives Saddam in the Oval Office, and as Saddam
sits down, he sees three buttons in the arm-rest of Clinton's chair.
As the meeting goes on, Saddam sees that Clinton presses the first button,
and ducks really fast, but nothing seems to happen. This doesn't stop
Clinton from laughing...really loud.
After this, Clinton continues where he left off, until he presses another
button. Saddam reacts really quick, and jumps up. Absolutely nothing
happens, and this time Clinton falls out of his chair laughing. Saddam
doesn't get it - what the hell is happening here?
But he hasn't been harmed yet, so he sits down again to talk further.
After a few minutes Clinton presses the final button. This time, Saddam
stays sitting, but Clinton isn't, he's is rolling on the floor, doubled
up from laughing. Saddam is really annoyed by now, so he stands up from
his chair and shouts: "I've had enough of this, I'm going back to Baghdad"
(Through tears of laughter from the floor) - "Baghdad?.....What Baghdad?"
