Nancy Pelosi met with the Queen of England. She asked her, “Your Majesty, how do you run such an efficient government? Are there any tips you can give to me?”
“Well,” said the Queen, “The most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people.”
Pelosi frowned, and then asked, “But how do I know if my associates are really intelligent?”
The Queen took a sip of tea. “Oh, that’s easy: you just ask them to answer an intelligent riddle.”
The Queen pushed a button on her intercom. “Please send Boris Johnson in here, would you?”
Boris Johnson walked into the room and said, “Yes, Your Majesty?”
The Queen smiled and said, “Answer me this please, Boris, your mother and father have a child. It is not your brother and it is not your sister. Who is it?”
Without pausing for a moment, Boris answered, “That would be me.”
“Yes! very good,” said the Queen.
Pelosi went back home to ask Joe Biden, the same question. “Joe, answer this for me. “Your mother and your father have a child. It’s not your brother and it’s not your sister. Who is it?”
“I’m not sure,” said Biden. “Let me get back to you on that one.”
He went to his advisors and asked everyone, but none could give him an answer.
Finally, Biden ran into Jim Jordan, while out eating one night. Biden asked, “Jim, can you answer this for me? Your mother and father have a child and it’s not your brother or you sister. Who is it?” Jim Jordan answered right back, “That’s easy, it’s me!”
Biden smiled , and said, “Thanks!” Then he went back to speak with Pelosi. “Say, I did some research and I have the answer to that riddle. It’s Jim Jordan.”
Pelosi got up, stomped over to Biden, and angrily yelled into his face. “No, you idiot! It’s Boris Johnson!”
