News Item: The President enters Walter Reed military hospital to recover from


Yes sir, Mr. President.  I'm glad you are feeling better.

I don't want your sentiments.  I want a CHEESEBURGER, nurse.

Yes Sir.  I called the kitchens.  They don't have cheeseburgers on the menu today.

I don't care if it's on the menu.  I don't care if you have to slaughter a cow.  I want a
CHEESEBURGER!  And don't forget some fries.

Yes Sir.  I'll call them again.

Doctor!  Good.  I'm glad you came in.  Listen, how can you expect a patient to get
better if he can't get decent food?  I want a cheeseburger.

Well Mr. President.  That's a really good sign.  I think you're getting better.

I told you before I would.

I'll see if I can get you that cheeseburger.  I'll order a special meal for you.

Do you want it for lunch or dinner?

Both.  And you can add one for breakfast . . . with a couple of eggs.

And some vegetables for lunch and dinner?

What do you think I am . . . a rabbit.  Anyway the cheeseburger has vegetables in it. .
. lettuce and tomato. . .

The chefs in the White House must be having an easy time.

Well, the First Lady keeps them busy with her Slovenian dishes.  Doctor, I'm hungry.
