We're Off to See the Wizard!

Four United State's Presidents get caught up in

a tornado and off they whirled to the land of OZ.


They finally made it to the Emerald City and

went to find the Great Wizard.


What brings the 4 of you before the great Wizard of Oz?


Jimmy Carter stepped forward timidly and said:

I've come for some courage.


No Problem! said the Wizard. Who's next?

Richard Nixon stepped forward,
Well, I think I need a heart.


 Done! says the Wizard.
Who comes next before the Great and Powerful Oz?


Up stepped Dubya and said,

I'm told by the American people that

I need a brain.

No problem! said the Wizard.
Consider it done.

Then there is a great silence in the hall.
Bill Clinton is just standing there, looking around,
But he doesn't say a word.
Irritated, the Wizard finally asks,

Well, what do you want?
