Every once in a while, someone has a little fun at the expense of, well, the president of the United States. And every once in a while, some of that fun comes around in the form of, what else, email.

We found this missive, having a little fun with the building of the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas, Texas, somewhat entertaining. To paraphrase Dr. Strangelove, our source is the Internet.

Suspend your partisan ties for the moment, and take a virtual tour through the library that the retiring president is planning at the alma mater of the outgoing First Lady, Southern Methodist University. And, when you're finished, design your own room.

There is...

"The Hurricane Katrina Room, which is still under construction.

"The Alberto Gonzales Room, where you won't be able to remember anything.

"The Texas Air National Guard Room, where you don't even have to show up.

"The Walter Reed Hospital Room, where they don't let you in.

"The Guantanamo Bay Room, where they don't let you out.

"The Weapons of Mass Destruction Room, which no one has been able to find.

"The National Debt Room, which is huge and has no ceiling.

"The Tax Cut Room, with entry only to the wealthy.

"The Economy Room, which is in the toilet.

"The Iraq War Room. (After you complete your first visit, they make you to go back for several more visits.)

"The Dick Cheney Room, in the famous undisclosed location, complete with shotgun gallery.

"The Environmental Conservation Room, still empty.

"The Supreme Court Gift Shop, where you can buy an election.

The Airport Men's Room, where you can meet some of your favorite Republican Senators.

"The Decider Room, complete with dart board, magic 8-ball, Ouija board, dice, coins, and straws.''

Okay, like we said, a little fun here, that's all.

If you'd like, you can add your own room to the design.
