Code Cracked

A tale of transition of power from Tom Vickery.

After a President has been in office for 6 months it is customary for the last President to send a note of congratulations to the new one.

So, recently when the note came from Bush to Obama, the President was somewhat troubled because it was written in code and all it said was:


This troubled him as he had always heard from his peers how former president Bush was perceived to have been scholarly challenged. They called all of their contacts in the media and sent copies of the  note to all of them, and not one was able to come up with an answer.

A special emergency meeting was called by the staff.

All branches of the military, counter intelligence, CIA, FBI were called  in, and the best minds were unable crack the code.

After a sleepless night, a now humbled President picked up the phone and  called the former president, and asked him the meaning of the note.

Bush chuckled and replied: ‘Dude ………… .You’re holding it upside down!’
