I GREET YOU IN CONFIDENCE
2000 people are
thought to be dead after a huge explosion ripped through a section of Lagos, Nigeria.
The Nigerian government was quick to respond, telling news agencies: "Most cordial
greetings. I have ten million dollars I must move out of Nigeria, and I wish to
transfer it to your account, as you seem like a trustworthy person. What is your bank
WHO WAS THAT LADY?
Asked about the ongoing tribal warfare in Afghanistan,
Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld told Untrue News "Under the old system, it was
warlord against warlord. But now it's the other way around." Later, Rumsfeld apologized
for switching an old joke and presenting it as a legitimate news item, saying "At the
time I was totally out of ideas."

TAX DOLLARS AT WORK
The President will ask
Congress to approve a budget in excess of three trillion dollars. That's almost as much
as Enron stole.
Asked about the size of
the budget, Bush told Untrue News "It seems like a lot, but I checked with the Vice
President, and he says it's fine."

WELL RECUUUUUSE ME!
Attorney General John Ashcroft recused himself from the
Enron case because he had taken $57,000 from Enron in his failed bid for the Senate in
2000. His chief of staff also recused himself, since he was Mr. Ashcroft's 2000
campaign manager. Every other Republican and Democratic Senator and cabinet member
asked for recusal for similar reasons. Apparently the only people who didn't make money
off Enron are its employees and shareholders.
Interesting anagram: You can rearrange the letters in
'ENRON EXECUTIVE" to form the phrase "THIEVING BASTARD"

good reason anyone can think of, it's really stupid, and what is uncool about tourists is
