The golden urinal (aka The White House Visit)

Before the 2001 inauguration of George Bush, he was invited to a get-acquainted tour of the White House. After drinking several glasses of iced tea, he asked Bill Clinton if he could use his personal bathroom.

When he entered Clinton's private toilet, he was astonished to see that President Clinton had a solid gold urinal.

That afternoon, George told his wife, Laura, about the urinal. "Just think," he said, "When I am president, I could have a gold urinal, too! But, of course, I would never do something that self-indulgent!"

Later, when Laura had lunch with Hillary, during her tour of the White House, she told Hillary how impressed George had been at his discovery that, in the President's private bathroom, the President had a gold urinal.

That evening, when Bill and Hillary were getting ready for bed, Hillary smiled, and said to Bill: "I found out who peed in your saxophone."
