The Iraqi Ambassador to the UN has just finished giving a speech, and walks out into the lobby where he meets President Bush. They shake hands and, after a brief chat about world affairs, the Iraqi says, "I have a question that I think perhaps you can answer." President Bush says, "Well, I'll do my best."

He doesn't understand why there are never any Arabs in Star Trek." President Bush laughs, leans toward the Iraqi, and whispers, "It's because it takes place in the future...."
