All the President’s Meals

Okay. This has nothing to do with anything Jewish, but it’s a great story, so here goes.

A friend of mine, in from England, was visiting her aunt in Washington DC the other night. They went to a Thai restaurant for dinner, and in walked none other than George W. Bush.

The funny part?

The President dined with a table full of company — but was the only one who used a fork instead of chopsticks.

True story.
