Friday Funny

There is a national paper called the Onion. The paper is filled with current event type stories as well as people of interest pieces. The thing that differentiates it from other national papers, is that it's all a joke. Every story is a play on words or awash in a sea of irony. The jokes within it's pages sometimes require thought and are not for those who only get setup-build-punchline types of humor. If you're one of those people, today's Funny may not be for you. For those of you into a smarter brand of humor, you should check the Onion out. Here's a story from the 08/09/07 issue that made me laugh right out loud.

Report: Iran Less Than 10 Years Away From 2016
Washington, DC-According to an alarming new Department of Defense report combining civilian, military, and calendric evidence, Iran may be as few as 9 years away from the year 2016. "Every day they get one day closer," Defense Secretary Robert Gates said during a White House press conference Tuesday. "At the rate they're going, they will reach 2016 at the same time as the United States-and given their geographical position relative to the international date line, possibly even sooner." The report recommended that the U.S. engage in bellicose international posturing, careless brinkmanship, and an eventual overwhelming series of nuclear strikes in order to prevent Iran from reaching this milestone.

Now that's news! Have a great weekend everyone.
