An acceptable joke?

This came to me from a friend in India:

Today's Joke, fit for an 11 year old, comes from an Iranian friend of mine who wishes to remain anonymous.

A US Republican Senator gets on a plane and finds himself seated next to an Iranian lady.

He sees her Iranian passport and strikes up a conversation.

"So tell me," he says, "why does a country like Iran - with so much oil and gas - need a nuclear programme?"

The Iranian lady looks at him, a little puzzled.

"That's a very interesting question," she says, "but let me ask you something first.

A horse, a cow and a deer all eat the same stuff...grass.

Yet the deer excretes little pellets, the cow turns out a flat patty and the horse produces muffins of dried poop.

Why do you suppose that is?

The American guy is dumbfounded.

Finally, he replies: "I haven't the slightest idea."

"Oh, I see," says the Iranian, "so how is it you feel qualified to discuss Iran's nuclear programme when you don't know s**t?"

I really had to laugh at this one!

The funny thing is, the United States also had huge amounts of natural gas and oil when they developed nuclear power in 1957. America knew then, like Iran does today, that oil will not last forever.

So the best answer to the question "Why do you need nuclear power when you HAVE so much oil?" is "Why did you need nuclear power when you HAD so much oil?"

Of course the Bush-Blair-Howard war party already knows this answer. They just want to manufacture doubt and set the stage for Israel to bomb Iran.

It is only a matter of time.
