The Pretzel Incident

On January 13th, 2002, President George W. Bush got so excited while watching an NFL playoff game that he choked on a pretzel and fainted.

"Bush passed out, banged his head on a table, then came to a few seconds later," Jay Leno explained. "Today Bush said it was just like being back in college... They are taking this pretty seriously. White House staffers spent all day yesterday child-proofing the residence."

[The London Daily Telegraph published an editorial claiming that the pretzel incident proved Bush to be a man of the people: "This is exactly the sort of accident," they declared, "that befalls Homer Simpson, night after night."]
