Queen Noor not insulted by unhumiliating reception

Queen Noor of Jordan was not the least bit upset today after being forced to wait for entry at the White House gate while the Secret Service argued over whether or not she "was too hot to be a queen".

"When they said that I wasn't nearly dowdy enough to be a real queen, that got me quite non-distraught," Noor told reporters. "And I was particularly undismayed when one of them thought he recognized as that girl from the Woody Allen movie."

Noor, who is fifty-seven, was further unhumiliated when agents quibbled over the data on her passport, claiming that she didn't look a day over forty.
