GUEST EDITORIAL -- The India-Pakistan War. By God
As you know from your reading of the book of
Leviticus, I am a fierce and vengeful God. You also know from the book of Matthew that even
though I am quick to anger, I still love you guys. So here is the deal on India and Pakistan.
It's not that big a deal. In the first place, very few Indians or Pakistanis believe in me,
so whatever happens, I'm not gonna get blamed for it. But even if someone figures it out, it
shouldn't hurt those of the Judeo-Christian faith. If there is anyone among the Untrue News
readership who is a follower of Jehovah (me) and you happen to be in India or Pakistan, you
might wish to err on the side of caution, get me? And here is the probable result of a
nuclear conflict. Pakistan can nuke India and do severe damage to it. India can nuke Pakistan
out of existence. If this happens (I'm not telling) the result will be that a nation which
harbors terrorists and enemies of Judaism and Christianity will no longer exist, and India
will find its own peoples decimated, reducing a serious Malthusian population explosion. If
that's not a win-win situation, I don't know what is.
You ask why I don't simply bring peace to these two countries?
(You see, I know what you are asking before you ask it.) My answer is, it is easier to stop a
baby's crying by giving him to a neighbor than by putting sand in his diaper. So it is with
India and Pakistan. No reasonable person could disagree with me, his Deity.
OIL ON TROUBLED WATERS
George W. Bush expressed approval of an agreement that would
permit Iraq to sell more oil in spite of the US embargo. Bush told Untrue News "We are
fine with it, as long as the oil is traded for food, medicine. stock options, and other
humanitarian needs." The White House was quick to point out that by stock options, Mr.
Bush meant warm clothing.
MEMO TO BONNIE
AND CLYDE: If you had been terrorists instead of bank robbers, you two kids
would be alive today.

V FOR VALEDICTORY
Zayed Yasin, the Harvard student who caused an outcry with his planned
commencement speech "My American Jihad" says he did not mean for his title to offend some
students and pro-Israel groups. At the suggestion of faculty members on the speech
committee, Mr. Yasin has changed the title to "Mein American Kampf"
A VOTE FOR YOUTH
A three-judge panel ruled last week that public libraries
cannot be forced to install software that blocks sexually explicit Web sites. Moments
after the decision, James K. Polk middle school students swarmed the local library,
causing a crush at the doorway which injured several students and a derelict.
MARCHING TO PRETORIA
South African Breweries agreed today to buy the Miller Brewing Company from
the Philip Morris Companies for $3.6 billion in stock. SAB spokesman Roger Van de
Kordovan told the Financial Times of London, "We simply HAD to purchase Miller, we
couldn't believe Philip Morris was actually carbonating weasel piss and selling it as beer. But that's
what they were doing." Asked if the new owners would change the quality of the beer, Mr.
Van de Kordovan said "Not at all. We have plenty of weasels in South Africa."
