Vus titzuch?

President Bush calls the head of the CIA and asks, 'How come the Israelis know everything before we do?'

The CIA chief replies, 'The Jews have this expression: 'Vus titzuch?'

The President asks, 'What does that mean?'

'Well, Mr. President,' replies the CIA chief, 'it's a Yiddish expression that roughly translates to 'What's happening?!'. They just ask each other and they find out and, inevitably, they know everything.'

The President decides to go undercover to determine if this is true.

He dresses up as an Orthodox Jew. Wearing the traditional black hat, beard, long black coat, the whole schtick. The President is secretly flown in an unmarked plane to New York , picked up in an unmarked car, and dropped off in Crown Heights, Brooklyn's most Jewish neighborhood.

Soon a little old man comes shuffling along.

The President stops him and whispers, 'Vus titzuch?'

The old guy whispers back, 'That shmuck Bush is in Brooklyn'.
