Back on June 25, 2005, I posted this satirical interview between Barbara Walters and George W. Bush. I'm not sure how it was received as it was a weekend post and no comments were left. I suspect not many read it the first time around.

With the recent return to Bush-bashing, I have decided to reprise that interview. Personally, I thought it was pretty funny, but then I did write it! Without further "adieu" here is that interview that demonstrates just how important elocution can be. It could only be titled:

Bawbwa Does Dubyew ~

Bawbwa: Welcome folks to my excwusive wate night interview with Pwesident George Dubyew Bush. Welcome Mr. Pwesident!
Dubyew: Thank you, Barbara. And hello, my fellow Americans.
Bawbwa: We understand you just had a compwete check-up. I twust everything was alwight.
Dubyew: That's right. I got a clean bill of health. In fact, I got weighed just before coming here.
Bawbwa: You did? You got weighed? Did you wike it?
Dubyew: What's that?
Bawbwa: When you got weighed, you must have wiked it. Did Waura wike it too? I'll bet she just wuved it!
Dubyew: No, no, Barbara. Laura wasn't even there!
Bawbwa: Then who did you weigh, Mr. Pwesident?
Dubyew: I didn't weigh anyone. They weighed me!
Bawbwa: They? Mr. Pwesident, are you twying to tell me you got weighed in a menage-a-twa with two women?
Dubyew: Two women? Oh, I see. You're talking about the dessert I had with lunch. It was lemon meringue.
Bawbwa: Women mewang? Is that what high wanking officials call phiwandering now a days?
Dubyew: Barbara, I feel like I'm being interviewed by Elmer Fudd!
Bawbwa: Elmer? Elmer is my speech instwuctor. He was getting weighed with you too?
Dubyew: Barbara! Why are you removing your blouse?
Bawbwa: Sowwy, but I'm getting wather wandy! All this talk about getting weighed is making me vewy wight-headed.
Dubyew: Ah, your network wants to go to a commercial, right now.
Bawbwa: No! It's getting wate. We still have a wot of gwound to discuss.
Dubyew: Yes. Didn't you want to talk about Saddam?
Bawbwa: You mean Sa-dawm? You know, rhymes with bomb.
Dubyew: Sodomy? Barbara, what kind of subject is that?
Bawbwa: Well, you bwought it up. (Hee-hee!) Is that why you cwossed your wegs?
Dubyew: Sa-dawm? Sodomy? I meant Saddam .. you know..in jail..Hussein!
Bawbwa: Hmm, yes I guess it's sad it's Quayle whose insane. But why bwing up that woser?
Dubyew: I just noticed, Barbara, without your blouse I can see that you have love handles. Maybe you should get weighed.
Bawbwa: Mr. Pwesident! Are you saying you want to weigh me?
Dubyew: I'll tell you what, we'll get weighed together.
Bawbwa: Well, people usuwalwy get weighed together. Don't you and Waura?
Dubyew: You want Laura to get weighed with us too?
Bawbwa: Well, all I can say, is that tonight will be a gwound bweaking wesson for the network.
Dubyew: Wesson oil? Sounds kinky.
Bawbwa: No wesson. You know wike a histowy wesson.
Dubyew: Ah. A lesson to deal with slippery situations. I see.
Bawbwa: A wesson in wate-night pwogwamming! This pwogwam is only on for one hour. There's not much time weft.
Dubyew: It doesn't take but a minute or two to get weighed.
Bawbwa: Why, Mr. Pwesident. You mean to tell me you are a minute man? Uh, never mind. They will wish they awowed at weast two hours to show America a wusty Bawbwa weighing Dubyew and Waura your wife at the same time! The people will simpwy wuv it!
Dubyew: No cameras, Barbara. It is a private matter getting weighed. Come on, let's go get weighed.
Bawbwa: Good night, America.
Dubyew: Hey! That's my wine!
Bawbwa: Eat your heart out, Opwa!

Oh, that is priceless. I am LMAO!

I was laughing when I wrote it and again when I posted it the first time. History repeats itself, for when I reread and posted it again - more laughing.

I'm not supposed to laugh at my own jokes, am I?

Serena Joy said...

I see no reason why you shouldn't laugh at your own jokes. Funny is funny.

I thought of you, SJ, when I was reading "Bush's" words in the cartoon, in particular the word pertectionate.
