Survey: Bush Not That Upset, Really

A headline announced that President Bush was upset about a report that U.S. Marines allegedly killed two dozen Iraqi civilians in an unprovoked attack last November. An opinion poll conducted by the Stillwater Tribune asked citizens exactly how upset they thought Bush was by this untoward incident.

Twelve per cent of poll respondents answered that Bush and American conservatives care as much about the unprovoked massacre of a bunch of Iraqi civilians as they do about the sky-rocketing price of a gallon of gas.

An astonishing eighty-eight per cent of those surveyed believe that Bush was less upset about the alleged murders than he was about a possible delay in the release of the “Complete Season One of the Flintstones” on DVD.

To participate in our latest poll, see the box below and to the right on this web page.

ATTENTION: My old pal Donj (pronounced “don-jay”), whom I haven’t seen in fifteen years, is writing in to this blog but refuses to give me his contact information, despite my repeated pleas. If anyone knows where Donj is, please tell him. Then instruct him to go to the nearest police station and get in touch with me. Thank you.

Well, I see you have been spitting out your medications again. I will rendezvous at the contact point, though I bet when I get there I will only find last week's "Dilbert". "Vaya Con Dios"? Do you mean that Armand's dead? My God, let's get this straight.

No, I checked--he's not dead--he was in a band called Spiderbaby with bro Tony back in the 90s. Now Tony is in a band called Punchbox, but as for Mondo... Anyway, I went to the Philly Inquirer web page, and they wouldn't let me go to Section E, or any section. So send me whatever it is you're talking about, paste it here. Or were you just pulling my leg? That would be real funny, and so unlike you.
