Received via email, so I don’t know where it originated (and Google was no help either).
George W. Bush, Vladimir Putin, and Steve Ballmer were called in by God.
God informed them that he was very unhappy about what was going on in this world. Since things were so bad, he told the three that he was destroying the Earth in three days. They were all allowed to return to their homes and businesses, and tell their friends and colleagues what was happening. God did tell them though, that no matter what they did he was “not” changing his mind.
So, W. went in and told his staff, “I have good news and bad news for you. First the good news . . . there is a God. The bad news is that he is destroying the Earth in 3 days.”
Putin went back and told his staff, “I have bad news and more bad news. The first was . . . there is a God. The second was that he is destroying the Earth in 3 days.”
Steve Ballmer went back and told his staff, “I have good news and good news. First . . . God thinks I am one of the three most important people in the world. Second . . . you don’t have to fix Windows Vista.”
