The Pope is visiting Washington, D.C., and President Bush
takes him out for an afternoon on the Potomac, cruising on the Presidential

They're admiring the sights when, all of a sudden, the Pope's
hat (zucchetto) blows off his head and out into the water.
Secret Service guys start to launch a boat, but President Bush
waves them off, saying, "Wait, wait. I'll take care of this. Don't
worry." Bush then steps off the yacht onto the surface of the water
and walks out to the Holy Father's little hat, bends over, picks it up,
and then walks back to the yacht and climbs aboard. He hands the hat to
the Pope amid stunned silence.

The next morning, the headlines in the New York Times, Boston
Globe, Atlanta Constitution, Washington Post, Boston Herald, Buffalo
News, Houston Chronicle, Milwaukee Sentinel-Journal, Minneapolis
Tribune, Denver Post, Albuquerque Journal, Los Angeles Times, and San
Francisco Chronicle all proclaim: "Bush Can't Swim!"
