(CNN) - President Bill Clinton delivered a few friendly jokes during his remarks at the George W. Bush Presidential Ceremony dedication ceremony in Dallas, with one of them poking fun at his successor's new hobby of painting.
"I probably shouldn't say this, but I'm going to anyway. Your mother showed me some of your landscapes and animal paintings, and I thought they were great. Really great. And I seriously considered calling you and asking you to do a portrait of me–until I saw the results of your sister's hacked e-mails," Clinton said. "Those bathroom sketches were wonderful, but at my age, I think I should keep my suit."
Bush could be seen laughing heartily at the joke.
The hacked emails included some private photographs of the Bushes as well as some of Bush's paintings. The emails also delved into personal family topics, scheduling matters and contact information for dozens of extended Bush relatives.
The United States Secret Service is investigating the hacking and publication of the private emails.
