George Bush was spending some time at his ranch in Crawford, Texas. One afternoon, he was riding in the back of his official limousine when he saw two men eating grass by the roadside. He ordered his driver to stop and he got out to investigate. "Why are you eating grass?" he asked one man..
"We don't have any money for food," the poor man replied.
"Oh, well, you can come with me to my ranch," instructed the president.
"But, sir, I have a wife and two children with me!"
"Bring them along!" replied the president. He turned to the other man and said "You come with us, too".
"But, sir, I have a wife and six children!" the second man answered.
"Bring them as well," answered Bush as he headed for his limo. They all climbed in, which was no easy task, even for a car as large as the limousine.
Once underway, one of the poor fellows said, "Sir, you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you."
Bush replied, "Glad to do it. You'll love my place... the grass is almost a foot tall!"
