Presidents are often pictured as people of high importance and responsibility. In fact, they have a responsibility to every citizen of the country. In such a demanding and serious position, these men and women are often thought of as lacking a sense of humor. All said and done, we do come to know about the lives of these important people when they are more social. They do have a side to which we are oblivious.
All the Presidents in the past few decades have shown remarkable ability to take and break jokes that have become viral on the Internet. Barack Obama, Ronald Regan, Bill Clinton but most of all, George W. Bush. He has become an icon in the Internet jokes domains in the last few years.
George Bush Junior has often been associated with corruption and unpatriotic behavior, but some of his appearances and performances have been filled to the brim with funny moments. Some of his famous quotes are: “I guess it’s OK to call the secretary of education here ‘buddy.’ That means friend,” “I’ve been in the Bible every day since I’ve been the president,” but the best is: “Yesterday, you made note of my — the lack of my talent when it came to dancing. But nevertheless, I want you to know I danced with joy. And no question Liberia has gone through very difficult times.” In fact, this was in reference to the dancing that he showcased to the world with African tribal instrumentalists and singers on the occasion of the Liberian President visiting the U.S. for talks. It has been quite some time in history that America had a President who had a flair for dancing. It was a ridiculous affair and the act was laughed at by YouTube users all around the world.
His career has been dotted with goofups and slip of tongue in all the years he served as Presidents. To quote George Bush: “I want to share with you an interesting program — for two reasons, one, it’s interesting, and two, my wife thought of it — or has actually been involved with it; she didn’t think of it. But she thought of it for this speech,” “There’s no question about it. Wall Street got drunk — that’s one of the reasons I asked you to turn off the TV cameras — it got drunk and now it’s got a hangover. The question is how long will it sober up and not try to do all these fancy financial instruments,” and the list is endless.
Some his other incidents include getting attacked by a Thanksgiving turkey in a very inappropriate way. His reaction was as good as Mr. Bean’s and everyone burst out laughing. His sense of humor was indeed fantastic. Then a famous incident is when he tried to escape from a news conference that was happening at Beijing at that time. He was surprised to be greeted only by locked doors. The classic expression was captured on live television.
There are an incredibly large number of funny quotes, bloopers, funny moments and other humorous incidents associated with George Bush, undoubtedly the funniest President the world has seen.
Being among the top in the US Congress has its own share of hilarious and embarrassing moments. Hilarious for us…embarrassing for the Congressman. For the icing on the cake, you always have people like David Letterman and Jay Leno making sure that their antidotes would want the Congressman to hide under the nearest table and wish that the ground would just swallow him up.
Let’s start with my all-time favourite: Mr. George Bush
Mr. Bush is a man of a few words but with a lot of action. He has definitely done a few good things to make America a better place. Yet, there were a few instances, where he went out of his way thus making him and his party run for cover
Let’s take the example of the G-8 summit. Mr. Bush had a few eyebrows raised when he decided to give the German Chancellor Angela Merkel a neck rub. The move was uninvited and definitely not expected. The chancellor removed the hands of the president of the United States by pushing his hands away. The look that Mr. Bush had was worth killing for. Another instance that comes to my mind is ‘The shoe throwing incident’ during the news conference in Baghdad. Shortly after the news conference started, an Iraqi journalist, Muntader-al-Zaidi, an Iraqi journalist stood up and shouted in Arabic “This is a gift from the Iraqis. This is a farewell kiss, you dog”. He then threw a shoe at Mr. Bush who bent down and narrowly avoided it. As the stunned security guards and officials watched, Mr. Zaidi threw his second shoe on Mr. Bush shouting in Arabic again “This is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed in Iraq”. That shoe also narrowly missed him as the Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki stuck a hand in front of Mr. Bush’s face to shield him
Another really funny look that the US Congress will remember is that of Senator John McCain in 2008. Shortly after the debate with Mr. Barrack Obama after the third and final presidential election, he was captured the Republican nominee for President in an awkward stance with his tongue sticking out and his hands trying to go for Mr. Barrack’s behind. This picture is known all over as the ‘Zombie McCain picture’. It quickly became a hit in the US history as one of the most funny pictures in the Congress government
US ex-senetor and vice-president candidate, Mr. John Edwards was caught trying to escape after visiting his mistress Rielle Hunter and their daughter. While coming out of Ms. Hunter’s house, Mr. Edwards was asked about his whereabouts by a reporter. Mr. Edwards, who always claimed that he had nothing to hide, did what any gentleman would do. He fled to the bathroom and locked himself in. He later admitted to the affair but denied having a love child for a year. This affair happened when Edwards was running for vice president elections and his wife of 29 years was battling breast cancer. John Edwards, later on, apologized for his behaviour.
There are more instances that come to my mind. However, till today whenever I read of these instances and look at their pictures put, it never fails to bring a smile to my face
We can definitely say that our lives have been made much, much easier thanks to the Internet and all of the technological advancements that is has made over the years. We are now able to do almost everything online including shopping for clothes, food items, and even medicine. Yes people, you can now purchase prescription drugs over the Internet via online pharmacies. I guess you can say that the people who are living in this digital age are quite spoiled because of how much technology has helped turn their lives around. But have you ever wondered what the world would be like if online pharmacies had never existed at all?
Imagine yourself being unable to leave your home because you are injured or because of some car troubles and you are in desperate need of some medicine. You obviously will not be able to make it to your local pharmacy in time because of your given situation so the next best thing would be to make a purchase through an online pharmacy. Simple, right? Well, it is simple as long as you have access to an online pharmacy, but what if you did not? What if these things had never even existed? What would you do in your situation?
This is how things will become even more difficult for some people if there were no such things as online pharmacies. I mean, let’s face it guys, life is easier because of online pharmacies. How often do you get the chance to make a business transaction in the comfort of your own home? Imagine all of the time and money you will be able to save whenever you purchase your prescription meds through the Internet. There will be no need for you to go out and waste your gas just so you can purchase some medicine from your local pharmacy which is probably 15 blocks away from where you live.
There will be times when your local pharmacy might run out of the drug that you are looking for. Whenever something like this happens, then your best bet would be to go to an online pharmacy and look for the prescription medicine that you need because they should have them in stock more often than not. Now imagine if we didn’t have online pharmacies. What would you do if the next drugstore is located about 30 miles from where you live?
Do you see how inconvenient it would be for those of us who have do not own our own cars? I guess what I am trying to say here is that we should all be thankful for online pharmacies because they are a great help. Even though there are a few bad eggs here and there, they are greatly outnumbered by all of the legit pharmacies online. So the next time you try to purchase some medicine online, take a moment to be thankful for these online drugstores.
