A motion had been passed in the House of Commons that required Winston Churchill, then the Prime Minister of Great Britain, to approve it. When the time came for this parliamentary procedure to reach final approval, Churchill was absent. As his presence was necessary, the Lord Privy Seal sent a parliamentary go-fer to find Churchill. Searching through the Parliament building high and low for more than a half an hour, the go-fer decided to look in the House of Common's gentleman's restroom. He found Churchill in a stall, his cigar smoke wafting up from the walls that surrounded him whilst doing his "business". The go-fer said sheepishly, "Mr. Churchill, the Lord Privy Seal requests your immediate return to the chamber.." Churchill replied, "You tell the Lord Privy Seal that I'm sealed in my privy! I can only deal with one shit at a time."
