Laura Bush bought a parrot for George Bush's birthday.
She told Dick Cheney, "This bird is so smart! George has already taught him to mispronounce over 200 words!"
"Wow, that's pretty impressive," Cheney said. "But you realize that he just 'says' the words. He doesn't understand what they mean."
"That's okay," Laura replied. "Neither does the parrot."
