Of course, it was the Cliff Notes version

CRAWFORD, United States (AFP) - US President George W. Bush quoted French existential writer Albert Camus to European leaders a year and a half ago, and now he's read one of his most famous works: "The Stranger."

White House spokesman Tony Snow said Friday that Bush, [at] his Texas ranch enjoying a 10-day vacation from Washington, had made quick work of the Algerian-born writer's 1946 novel -- in English.

"Quick work"? The book's only about 150 pages long, for god's sake! That's why it's taught in high school English classes. Freshman high school English classes.

[LSB: Freshman English in college for me. Do you think Bush may have confused Camus with Shamu? We know he likes animal stories. Remember how he continued to reat My Pet Goat while the Twin Towers were attacked?]

You cannot make this shit up.
