A story, as told by France's climate ambassador Brice Lalonde:
A man comes to the White House asking to see Bush. "He doesn't live here anymore," he is told. The next two days he comes again asking the same question, and receiving the same answer.
On the fourth day, the exasperated guard shot back: "I've already told you, he's no longer here."
"I know, I know," the man replied. "But it's such a pleasure to hear you say it."
