A short 22 minutes after a quick bowl of Texan Chili, President Bush exceeded all expectations by flatulating for a personal best 76 straight seconds in the general direction of the Possum (brought on board for just such occasions). The Possum quickly asphyxiated and Bush declared himself the winner.
There was some confusion at first as Isakson claimed the Possum was only 'playing' dead however as soon as he stepped within three feet of the Possum and the fumes, Isakson himself asphyxiated and had to be taken to the hospital.
The noxious fumes quickly spread throughout Air Force One resulting in an emergency landing in Galveston to fumigate the plan. All in all the President's lack of foresight resulted in the hospitalization of 3 Senators, 22 Staffers, 3 Secret Service Agents, 1 Pilot and 12 White House Reporters. However, as the President himself said, "What's in a few respiratory failures... compared to.... having... proving that Texans make the best Chili? I'll tell you, A dead Possum."
On a brighter note, Isakson has made a full recovery and has kept true to his word and raised the age of Sexual Consent in Georgia to 35, much to the delight of parents and chagrin of Georgian children.
