Sharon's Dinner at the White House

When Ariel Sharon came to Washington for meetings with George W Bush & for a state dinner, Laura Bush decided to bring in a special Kosher chef & offer a truly Jewish meal. At the dinner that night, the first course served is matzo ball soup. George W. looks at this & after learning what it is called, he tells an aide that he can't eat such a gross & strange-looking brew. The aide says that Mr. Sharon will be insulted if he doesn't at least taste it. Not wanting to cause any trouble (after all, he ate sheep's eye in honor of Arab guests), George W. gingerly lowers his spoon into the bowl & retrieves a piece of matzo ball & some broth. He hesitates, then swallows. A big grin appears on his face. He finds that he really likes it, so he digs right in & finishes the whole bowl. "That was delicious," Bush says to Sharon. "Do you Jews eat any other part of the matzo, or just the balls?"
