Why I Oughtta...

To commemorate China's recent $5.2 billion order of 80 Boeing 737 jets, Chinese President Hu Jintao and Boeing Co. employee Paul Dernier today mimicked one another putting on baseball caps as part of a reenactment of the celebrated and highly comical nightgown mirror scene from the classic 1933 Marx Brothers movie, "Duck Soup". President Hu moves on to the White House tomorrow, where the Chinese leader will meet with Pres. George W. Bush to discuss such issues as trade, Taiwan, the value of the Yuan and the growing nuclear threat in Iran. Should the two world leaders reach agreement, it is expected that Hu and Bush will attempt to recreate the entire "Who's On First?" routine made famous by the comedy team of Abbott and Costello.
