Bush in England
GB: That's right, Keill-ster.
GK: Oh, you're with us now, Mr. President.
GB: All the time. All the time.
GK: So, how did you find Great Britain?
GB: I didn't. They just put me in a plane and took me there.
GK: That's an old joke, sir.
GB: It's an old country, Garry.
GK: All right, to re-phrase. What did you think of Great Britain?
GB: It was great. That's why they named it "Great" Britain, isn't it?
GK: Something along those lines. And you met the Queen.
GB: That's right. I nicknamed her "Queenie." I do that. Makes people feel like regular folk.
GK: But she's royalty.
GB: She pulls her pants on one leg at a time like everyone else.
GK: So, you got along well with her?
GB: Sure it. Turns out we have a lot in common.
GK: Like what?
GB: We both got our jobs through family connections.
GK: I see.
GB: And we both aren't understood when we're talking English.
GB: Yeah. I couldn't understand her half the time, what with that accent. And all those funny words. Like TV. You know they don't call TV "TV" over there. They call it the "telly."
GK: I did know that.
GB: And they call elevators "lifts" and they call the trunk of your car a "boot" and they call Freedom Fries "chips." That's crazy. Then they call chips "crisps." They're nutty over there. It's no wonder we fought the Civil War to get rid of them.
GK: Did the war protests bother you?
GB: What can you do? It's just a bunch of malcontents there who don't like using war to solve our problems. They'll come around.
GK: Well, I appreciate you taking time out from your state visit to chat with us.
GB: Chat. That's another one of those British words.
