The joke from today's Newsnight e-mail - it's a stunner.
The daily e-mail from the B.B.C.'s 'flagship' Newsnight programme traditionally finishes with a "joke fit for an 11 year-old" - today's is a real corker, it had me :rofl:

Quoting directly from the message:

My thanks to Newsnight viewer Rhonda and many others who sent in this
Joke Fit For an 11 Year Old - which must be buzzing round the internet
since I have received so many copies of it:

Donald Rumsfeld is giving President Bush his daily briefing.

He concludes by saying: "Yesterday, three Brazilian soldiers were lost
in an accident.?

"OH NO!" the President exclaims. "That's terrible!"

His staff sit stunned at this display of emotion, nervously watching as
the President sits, head in hands.

Finally, the President looks up and asks:

"How many is a Brazillian??!"


:hide:

On a more serious note - the programme is available via broadband live and for 24 hours after broadcast at http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/newsnight/default... - tonight there will be an item on the Plame case, and one on a new development in the Jean Charles de Menezes case.
