The Ace of Diamonds has been cut from the pack:

US forces have captured Saddam Hussein's top aide and presidential secretary, a man who American officials believe knows the fate of the deposed Iraqi leader and has information about banned weapons.

Abid Hamid Mahmud al-Tikriti was No. 4 on the US most-wanted list of Iraqi leaders, behind only Saddam and sons Qusay and Uday.

And his moustache out-fuzzes them all. Inspect it for WMDs!

I didn't realize that making fun of a mustache was "racism." I mean, all you men are capable of growing one, so... If I make fun of a mustache is that sexism?

Andrea, feel sorry for my friend who is unable to grow a mustache. He is forced to train his nostril hair into a handlebar just so he won't be teased by guys with more testosterone. ;->=

Adam's right! I think the Coalition should be magnaminous in victory and say only nice positive things about our vanquished foes.

We shouldn't make fun of Saddam, Ba'athists, or their Western enablers and apologists like Adam and Margo.

To the Ba'athist Party: Those mustaches look dead butch...we were kinda scared by them and fear and ignorance and hate go hand in hand in hand. Sorry about the dumb jokes but you should see yourselves! Whooo, Dude! You had us shittin' 'em!

To Saddam: Adam's reference to Kingston refers to her use of a derogatory term for a racial minority. Margo uses hurtful terms. So she's been chastised by us. How did you deal with ethnic minority issues, Saddam, and were you then also chastised by your fellow citizens?

Oh, and sorry 'bout Jack's little joke about the biker bar. We know how you and the other Arab governments reach out to your gay and lesbian citizens...Guys like Adam wanted to keep you in power so you could continue to minister to Iraqi homosexuals with all the charitable tolerance that your 1991 born-again Islam insight gave you. What's a gay biker bar, you ask? It's a place we homophobes in the West allow gays to legally drink alcohol in, dance, flirt, talk politics openly, you know...like I'm sure you had in Iraq.

Gosh, Adam's gonna miss the old Iraq and he has to put up with all us hateful, triumphalist redneck bigots. It sucks to be Adam, eh Saddam?

What about that Tick cartoon, the one where his handlebar mustache kept growing and growing and trying to tie him up. Maybe that's racist too! Or "hairist." "Whiskerist"? "Anti-whiskerist"? Help me out here, Adam! I want to do the Right Thing.

Posted by: Andrea Harris at June 20, 2003 02:41 PM

"Jeez I suck"...the first resonable statement you came out with adam.

I was actually worried about offending gay bikers...but a joke's a joke so go choke adam.

I don't recall accusing anyone of racism. Why can't you respond to what was said rather than inventing ridiculous caricatures of it that you can safely deride?

Thanks, I will. You still prove to be so dense and self deluded as to be unable to
a) TAKE A JOKE, and
b) do anything other than bag others for having an opinion that doesn't fit in with your narrow view.
I comment on this site because it is not only witty but it makes fair comment on views of current interest. If these forums really bother you so much then stop reading. Open debate and comedic comment is obviously promoted here but you offer nothing other than a "tch tch" attitude. Booorrrinnggg!
I'm often wrong but I try not to be a pain in the arse while doing so.

BTW adam, I'm sure I look different to you too... thank christ. (adam will now comment on unfairness, small mindedness, red-necks or some other crap)
