Comedy Gold from the Onion


It's been a while but every now and then someone writes a comedy bit that makes me proud to be in the business. One such time was when Congress passed a bill giving 87 billion dollars more for the Iraq War and David Letterman said, "When you make out the check, remember there are 2 "L"s in Halliburton." I was recently pleased to see a couple of my own jokes in the lists of top Bush jokes of the last 5 years. There have been a lot of them you know, especially when you add in the ridiculous stuff he says himself. The following link is to a piece in the Onion. I bow to its greatness, and thank the Onion staff for making comedy writers everywhere proud. Here's a little bit to get you tuned in: WASHINGTON, DC—In a decisive 1–0 decision Monday, President Bush voted to grant the president the constitutional power to grant himself additional powers.
