Donald Rumsfeld is briefing President Bush one morning, and gives what he thinks is a better than usual casualty report: "Mr. President, we lost three Brazilian soldiers in Iraq yesterday."Hat tip to Bound by Gravity and the now gone Babbling Brooks for this one.
Dubya's jaw drops and his face grows ashen. Rummy is shocked, and asks the President what's wrong. Confused, Bush looks around at his advisors and replies:
"Well damn, Rummy, I may not be able to count that high, but I know even one brazillion is a lot of men."
