NEWSFLASH: Secretary of Defense Robert Gates was giving the President his daily briefing. He concluded by saying, ". . . and yesterday, three Brazilian soldiers were killed." President Bush fell back into his chair, totally devastated. He sighed loudly. "Oh, no," he said. "That's terrible!"
The President's staff sat stunned at this unusual display of emotion, nervously watching as the President sat with his head in his hands. Minutes passed.
Finally, the President looked up and asked, "So ... exactly how many is a brazillion?"
