World Saved - - Possibly

Okay, I've been watching the television news and there's a summit meeting going on in London with lots of world leaders.

Gordon Brown gave a beaming smile. That's really weird, for a start. Anyone ever seen him do that before? Thought not. President Obama patted him on the back and said they'd been talking with Gordon Brown's children about dinosaurs. Within a few hours, said Gordon, they'd be arriving at a proper agreement at this summit, and the world will be saved.

President and Mrs Obama towered over our Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, who asked them if they had jetlag. Barack and Michelle smiled indulgently at these two quaint British oldies, trying to bend low enough to see more than the tops of their heads. Michelle Obama, six feet nine, towered over our Queen, four feet two. The Queen looked mightily impressed and smiled. Breaking all royal protocol, Mrs President gave the Queen a hug. President Obama, seven feet three, towered over the Duke of Edinburgh who was too overawed even to make a tactless comment about his suntan.

Then President Obama met the Prime Minister of Russia who said in Russian that Barack was a jolly good chap and he liked him and everything was going to be fine and the world will be saved.

All in all it was very strange. It's not April the First or anything, is it?

You had all six-foot-eight of me rolling in the aisles....

I lied about the height but not about the funniest post.
