George W. Bush, Vladimir Putin, and Bill Gates were called in by God to heaven one day.
“I am appalled at the way that humankind have degenerated and the world trashed since the days of Adam,” He thundered. “I have called you here because you represent the most powerful and important people on earth today. Here is the ultimatum: clean up the world in three days and form a better society, or I will destroy the world!”
“You may return now to your home and businesses. Let the people know what I told you. You have three days.”
Upon descending to earth, George Bush immediately calls a cabinet meeting. “I have good news and bad news for you,” he said. “First the good news: there is a God. The bad news is that he is destroying the Earth in three days.”
Back in Russia, Putin calls a meeting of the politburo. “I have bad news and more bad news. The first bad news is: there is a God. The second: he is destroying the Earth in three days.”
Bill Gates goes back and calls a general body meeting of his company staff. “I have good news and more good news,” he beamed. “First: God thinks I am one of the three most powerful and important people on earth. Second: you don’t have to fix the bugs in Windows anymore.”
