A riddle for Obama

This has probably been told and retold, but it's worth repeating.

Obama is visiting the queen of England, and he asks her how she governs so well.

"That's easy", says the Queen.

"Just surround yourself with intelligent people."

Obama asks how she knows if someone is intelligent, to which the Queen replies "ask them to solve an intelligent riddle. Allow me to demonstrate.".

So, she summons Tony Blair and asks him the following.

"Your parents have a child. It's neither your brother nor your sister, so who is it?"

"That's easy. It's me." replies Tony.

Obama goes back to D.C. and poses the question to Joe Biden. Biden doesn't know, so he begs off to research the question. He asks all of Obama's top advisors and none of them can answer the riddle. Finally, he sees Paul Ryan in the congressional gym, and asks him. Paul responds "That would be me."

So, Joe runs back to Obama and tells him "I have an answer to your riddle. It's Paul Ryan!"

Obama responds "No, you dummy. It's Tony Blair!"

Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.
