A French joke

For those who understand :

Un homme décède et va au paradis. Il arrive dans le bureau de St- Pierre, et remarque que les murs sont ornés d'une multitude d'horloges.
Intrigué il lui demande " dites-moi, à quoi servent ces horloges accrochées contre vos murs ? "
Et le saint homme lui répond : " Ce sont les horloges du mensonge; lorsqu'une personne dit un mensonge, son horloge personnelle avance d'une heure. Voici par exemple celle de mère Teresa, elle est bloquée sur midi, donc elle n'a jamais dit de mensonge. Voici celle de Martin Luther King, elle marque deux heures, donc il a prononcé deux mensonges dans sa vie. L'homme observe les différentes horloges et demande: " je ne vois pas celle du président Bush ". >
St.Pierre : "Elle se trouve dans le bureau de Jésus, il l'utilise comme ventilateur ! "

Well, I walk into the room
Passing out hundred dollar bills
And it kills and it thrills like the horns on my Silverado grill
And I buy the bar a double round of crown
And everybody's getting down
And this town ain't never gonna be the same.
Cause I saddle up my horse and I ride into the city
I make a lot of noise
Cause the girls, they are so pretty...

All
ez Amélie!

Funny how often the same jokes are told with either George W. or our Italian Prime Minister Silvio... They seem to have a few things in common...
