Saddam Hussein and Bill Clinton meet up in Baghdad for talks on sanctions. When Bill sits down he notices Saddam’s chair has three buttons on the armrest.
They begin talking but after 5 minutes Saddam presses a button and a boxing gloves pops out of Clinton’s chair and bashes him on his face.
Clinton, barely believing it, carries on talking but after another few minutes Saddam presses a second button and out comes a large boot and kicks him in the groin.
Clinton is pissed off but still remains outwardly calm. They resume the talk, but after 5 minutes Saddam presses the final button, and from under the table another boxing glove hits Clinton, right in the groin.
Clinton is really fed up by it now and stands up to leave. “We’ll continue this talk next week in the White House” says the President.
Saddam, choking from laughing, is too proud to say no, so the appointment stands.
A week later Clinton receives Saddam in the Oval Office, and as Saddam sits down, he sees three buttons in the arm-rest of Clinton’s chair.
As the meeting goes on, Saddam sees Clinton press the first button, and ducks really fast, but nothing seems to happen. This doesn’t stop Clinton from laughing … really loudly.
After this, Clinton continues where he left off, until he presses another button. Saddam reacts really quickly, and jumps up. Absolutely nothing happens, and this time Clinton falls out of his chair laughing.
Saddam doesn’t get it – what the hell is happening here? But he hasn’t been harmed yet, so he sits down again to talk further. After a few minutes Clinton presses the final button. This time, Saddam stays sitting, but Clinton isn’t, he’s rolling on the floor, doubled up from laughing.
Saddam is really annoyed by now, so he stands up from his chair and shouts: “I’ve had enough of this, I’m going back to Baghdad”
(Through tears of laughter from the floor) – “Baghdad? … What Baghdad?
