Hello friends:
The prayer below is a twist on the Jewish blessing as follows:
Baruch atta adonai, eloheinu melech ha'olam, borai
p'ri hagafen
Blessed art thou Lord, our God and king of the universe, who creates the fruit of the vine 
Now scroll down to the joke. It's great!
A Prayer of Thanks

Barack atah Illinois, Elohenu melech ha'olam, hoo-ray p'ri ha-electoral landslide.

Amen

 

One sunny day in 2009, an old man approached the White House from across  Pennsylvania Ave , where he'd been sitting on a park bench.

He spoke to the US Marine standing guard and said, "I would like to go in and meet with President Bush."

The Marine looked at the man and said, "Sir, Mr. Bush is no longer president and no longer resides here."

The old man said, "Okay" and walked away.

The following day, the same man approached the White House and said to the same Marine, "I would like to go in and meet with President Bush." The Marine again told the man, "Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Bush is no longer president and no longer resides here."

The man thanked him and, again just walked away.

The third day, the same man approached the White House and spoke to the very same US Marine, saying "I would like to go in and meet with President Bush."

The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and said, "Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to Mr. Bush.  I've told you already that Mr. Bush is no longer the president and no longer resides here. Don't you understand?"

The old man looked at the Marine and said, "Oh, I understand. I just love hearing it. "

The Marine snapped to attention, saluted, and said, "See you tomorrow, Sir."
