And their shovels?

aah they've changed the link at the satire magazine to the picture on the 1st side:
could someone of the admins change iit to:
http://www.titanic-magazin.de/postca.../971185703.jpg

that one was really good:

..but not really a funny quote

So a short dialoge from a father and son:

son: "daaad is democracy god-given?"
father: "yes and we are here to tell god whom he should give it to"

and satelite pictures:

France is a legitimate target given their actions to help Saddam.

From The Australian:

Paris gave Saddam US secrets
From The Sunday Times and AP
April 28, 2003
DOCUMENTS uncovered in Baghdad reveal France gave Saddam Hussein top-secret information to help him prepare for the US-led war on Iraq.

They also demonstrate that the Baghdad regime dealt directly with Osama bin Laden's al-Qa'ida terror network Ė one of the key claims Washington used for launching the attack.

Files recovered from the wreckage of the Foreign Ministry show that Paris shared with Baghdad the details of private meetings with Washington. The information, said in the files to have come partly from "friends of Iraq" at the French Foreign Ministry, kept Hussein abreast of every development in US planning.

One report warned of a US "attempt to involve Iraq with terrorism" as "cover for an attack on Iraq".

Another dated September 25, 2001, from then Iraqi foreign minister Naji Sabri to Hussein's palace was based on a briefing from the French ambassador in Baghdad and covered talks between presidents Jacques Chirac and George W. Bush.

Mr Chirac was said to have been told the US was "100 per cent certain Osama bin Laden was behind the September 11 attacks and that the answer of the United States would be decisive". The report, found by The Sunday Times, also gave a detailed account of American attitudes towards Hussein amid anxiety in Iraq that the country might soon become a target of US reprisals.

Baghdad's al-Qa'ida link was revealed by Britain's Sunday Telegraph yesterday based on documents the paper said it discovered at the bombed-out headquarters of the Mukhabarat, Iraq's former feared intelligence service headquarters.

The paper said an al-Qa'ida envoy met Iraqi officials in 1998 with a view to establishing a relationship between Baghdad and the terror group based on their mutual hatred of the US and Saudi Arabia.

That's not a funny quote.
It has no one-liners to laugh about.
And my attention span cannot take more than one sentence in a row...

C ya!

Hmm, considering the fact that I see another post by this person after this one and considering the wording of the exclamation, I think we have a trace of al-Sahhaf.

C ya!

Marty

P.S. Considering my short attention span, was my statement too long?
