George W Bush has joined the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise funds for ALS awareness and - we'd like to think - pay a little tribute to all those water-boarding victims.

"To you all that challenged me, I do not think it's presidential for me to be splashed with ice water, so I'm simply going to write you a check."

At this point Mrs Bush steps in and douses him with a bucket of water douses him. She says: "That check is for me. I wouldn't ruin my hairstyle."

The former US president was challenged by his daughter, Jenna and in turn he has asked Bill Clinton to step up next.

He said: "Yesterday was Bill's birthday and my gift to Bill is a bucket of cold water."
