    After a President has been in office for one year it is customary for the last President to send a note of congratulations to the new one.

    So yesterday when the note came from Bush to Obama, the President was
    somewhat troubled because it was written in code and all it said was:

    370H-SSV-0773H

    This troubled him as he had always heard from his peers how former
    president Bush was perceived to have been scholarly challenged.

    So he took the note to his wife. She was unable to decipher it.

    They called in the VP, and he was unable to decode the message.
    They called in the chief of staff and the head of Secret Service
    detail and they were unable to determine the meaning of the note.

    Next he called in the head of the Senate and Speaker of the House.

    They both were mystified by the meaning of the coded message.

    Now there was complete panic in the Oval Office.

    They called all of their contacts in the media and sent copies of the
    note to all of them, and not one was able to come up with an answer.

    A special emergency meeting was called by the staff.

    All branches of the military, counter intelligence, CIA, FBI were
    called in, and the best minds were unable crack the code.

    After a sleepless night, a now humbled President Obama picked up the
    phone and called the former president, and asked him the meaning of
    the note.

    George Bush chuckled and replied:






















    'Bud ..... you're holding it upside down!'

    I remember the first time someone showed me 7734 (handwritten) when turned upside down spelled hell. I can't remember the kid but I'm sure I was in first or second grade. Even then I thought it was pretty stupid.

    I think you are a little mixed up about which one of these men is the stupid one.
