Larry King gets to the bottom of The Great Fetus Jar Mystery:
KING: You also disclose, Barbara — George discloses something very personal about you, which he says you gave him special permission to write about. He wrote that when you once had a miscarriage, you showed him the fetus in the jar.
BARBARA BUSH: No, really, the truth is…
KING: We touched on it before. But we didn’t elaborate.
BARBARA BUSH: I didn’t put it in the jar.
BARBARA BUSH: It’s not in the library. No…
KING: I know.
BARBARA BUSH: George — Paula put it in the jar. And I was shocked when she gave it to him too. But, you know, memories dim a little bit. But, anyway, but he was very…
KING: Were you shocked that he put it in the book?
BARBARA BUSH: No. He asked permission, and I gave him permission. It’s his book. And I think he was trying to say that he and I have a very special relationship. We tease all the time, and that’s not very nice of me, but — you know, you’ve got to tease a little bit. And he teases me unmercifully. But we’re very close.
So the Help put the fetus in the jar, but it’s in the book because Dubya likes to tease Mom. Or something like that.
