I was travelling in an airport today and watched President Obama bring the house down, causing howls of laughter across the concourse.  The ubiquitous CNN Airport showed Obama talking about the disastrous loss of the highly secret spy drone in Iran.

Obama’s laugh line: “We have asked the Iranians for it back.  We’ll see how they respond.”

A roar of chuckles and laughs rippled across the terminal, punctuated by a “stupid” or two.  One suspects the mullahs in Tehran had the same reaction.
