No Evidence Apr 18, 2003

This must not be used as an evidence for anything, because it was obviously obtained by wiretapping

Another on Mr. Bush Apr 23, 2003

When Mr. Bush had his head last examined the doctors found his brain has two sides: the right and the left. On the left side there was nothing right and on the right there was nothing left. I got this on the net.

EMERGENCY EXIT Apr 25, 2003

Hello,



Here is my contribution too.



One night, a Delta twin-engine puddle jumper was flying somewhere above New Jersey. There were five people on board: the pilot, Michael Jordan, George W. Bush, the Dali Lama, and a hippie. Suddenly, an illegal oxygen generator exploded loudly in the luggage compartment, and the passenger cabin began to fill with smoke. The cockpit door opened, and the pilot burst into the compartment.

\"Gentlemen,\" he began, \"I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that we\'re about to crash in New Jersey. The good news is that there are four parachutes, and I have one of them!\" With that, the pilot threw open the door and jumped from the plane.

Michael Jordan was on his feet in a flash. \"Gentlemen,\" he said, \"I am the world\'s greatest athlete. The world needs great athletes. I think the world\'s greatest athlete should have a parachute!\" With these words, he grabbed one of the remaining parachutes, and hurtled through the door and into the night.

George W. Bush rose and said, \"Gentlemen, I am supposed to be the President of the U.S. The world needs leaders, and I think leaders should have a parachute, too.\" He grabbed one, and out he jumped.

The Dali Lama and the hippie looked at one another. Finally, the Dali Lama spoke. \"My son,\" he said, \"I have lived a satisfying life and have known the bliss of True Enlightenment. You have your life ahead of you; you take a parachute, and I will go down with the plane.\"

The hippie smiled slowly and said, \"Hey, don\'t worry. The supposed leader of the free world just jumped out wearing my backpack.\"



And there is a site with many like this!! Have a look and get surprised
