Following up on successful documentary projects about George Harrison and Fran Lebowitz, HBO and Martin Scorsese are teaming to now inform the masses that Bill Clinton was once a U.S. President before becoming just a symbolic reminder of a time before everything seemed quite so hopeless.

Scorsese will reportedly direct the documentary project with his subject's full support, Clinton saying, "I am pleased that legendary director Martin Scorsese and HBO have agreed to do this film. I look forward to sharing my perspective on my years as President, and my work in the years since, with HBO's audience."

"A towering figure who remains a major voice in world issues, President Clinton continues to shape the political dialogue both here and around the world," Scorsese said in a statement. "Through intimate conversations, I hope to provide greater insight into this transcendent figure."

"Hope you don't get TOO intimate, though, if you know what I mean," someone meanwhile hilariously scoffed, remembering how Clinton got sperm on a lady's dress. I know what they mean. That thing with the dress sperm.
