Surprising Joke

I recently attended a workshop.  Pretty exciting I know!  Well after the introductions the first speaker got up and opened his talk with the following joke:

President Obama was visiting Queen Elizabeth.  As they were talking Obama asked her how she selects good people.  The Queen stated that she tests them to make sure that they are intelligent and promptly summoned Tony Blair to her office.  She gave Mr. Blair a quiz;  “if your mother and father had a child and it was not your brother or your sister who would it be?”  Tony Blair thought for a minute and answered, “it’s me!” the Queen smiled and Mr. Blair left them alone.  President Obama seemed impressed.
