So this one time...

George Bush, Dick Cheney, Condoleeza Rice, and Bush's most trusted cabinet members are having their weekly intelligence meeting. They are going over the usual things, troop movements, terrorist activity, and the like when Cheney says, "Mr. Bush, three Brazilian soldiers were killed in Iraq today."

Bush looks at Cheney, and visibly pales. "Oh my God," he says. "OH MY GOD. This is terrible! What are we going to do? How could something like this happen? Who is responsible?" His cabinet members see tears in his eyes as, shaking and muttering, he lowers his head into his hands. A few long minutes pass while the President regains his composure. Finally, he sets his shoulders, takes a deep breath, and calms himself. He takes his head from his hands, looks up at Dick, and says, "OK, first things first... How many is in a brazillion again?"
