In a Cabinet meeting, in the US, the defense minister reported to the President and the cabinet. He said, "Three Brazilian soldiers were killed today in Iraq."
The President says, "Oh, my God!" and buries his head in his hands.
The entire Cabinet is stunned. Not a word is spoken. Usually George Bush shows no reaction whatsoever to this kind of report.
Just then, Bush looks up and says, "How many is a brazilian?"
