Donald Rumsfeld began yesterday's daily briefing for the president by stating:
"Yesterday, 3 Brazilian soldiers were killed in Iraq."
"That's disastrous," the President reportedly exclaimed, "That does it: we have to withdraw!"
His stunned staff reportedly watched the president slump with his head in his hands, until he finally looked up, his face ashen, and asked:
"How many is a Brazillion?"
