Telltale signs of a budding politician

I WAS playing with my two-year-old son the other day and got a distinct odour as he ran past. I looked at him and said 'poo'?

He looked up and replied: 'No poo'. I managed to get him to stand still and exclaimed: 'Oh yes, poo'. Yet again he looked me in the eye and said: 'No poo'. After changing him I held up the contents of his latest nappy to illustrate the point. Even though he could feel it, smell it and see it, he again replied: 'No poo'. Despite overwhelming evidence, he was in complete denial. It was at that moment I realised he was going to be a politician. A part of me died that day.
