Bathroom Break

President Bush asks Condi Rice if he can go potty. (Reuters photo; full-size is here.)

    It's obvious that this is code. Look at the caps. "I MAY NEED A BATH". This is secret presidential code that means President Bush wants a bath.

    LOL! It's a Hipster PDA!

    How can we prove that he was passing it Rice? Maybe she passed it to him, and he is replying "F**K NO!"

    Reminds me of one of the great cocaine songs of all time, by Klymaxx:

    Got a meeting in the ladies room
    Be back real soon!
  • Mitch Groff 10y

    Hope Bushie finds what he needs...
  • Ben Tesch 10y

    The question's handwriting looks much different than the answer Bush appears to be writing. The capital "I" in "I think I" are serif caps, whereas the "I" in "Is their" (which is what it looks like to me, which is REALLY improper usage) is a cursive loop.
  • Mike Rundle 10y

    It's gotta be the same handwriting:

    Look at the th in "think", compared with the th in "this" .... the swash looks pretty similar to me!

    The part I think is funny is that he appears uncertain... "I THINK I MAY need a bathroom break?"
  • Matt McGee PRO 10y

    Be Still - the "I think" part is normal for us guys. :-)
  • Aaron Suggs 10y

    At least he uses basic punctuation marks correctly, like periods at the end of statements and question marks at the end of questions. Oh wait, no he doesn't.

    I guess grammar nazis hate our freedom.

    Classic Bushism. Who knows what other notes may have read which we never saw?
  • Vidiot PRO 10y

    Just curious -- where are all y'all coming from? This pic is getting tons of views...who's linking here?
  • Stephen Mekosh PRO 10y

    I came here from kottke.
  • Ben Harris-Roxas 10y

    Pure gold - I came from Kotke too.
  • Vidiot PRO 10y

    Ah, that would do it. Thanks.
  • Stephen Mekosh PRO 10y

    No problem. Thanks for posting the pic!
  • Newell the Jewell 10y

    guess the coffee started kicking in. this is where his priorities lie.
  • Leslie DeGrassi PRO 10y

    But what I can't find out is: did he actually get up and go to the loo?
  • Jonathan Fox 10y

    I mix my caps and lowercase... dont know why, always did it... weird
  • Melinda PRO 10y

    One would think the leader of the free world doesn't need permission to pee! Isn't that one of the perks of the job?
