Nelson Ascher on Iraq’s invisible arsenal:

How are we supposed to find hidden and buried WMDs in Iraq if, wherever one digs there, we just keep finding mass graves?

I contributed that gag to topfive.com's "Topfive U.S. Excuses for Not Finding WMD" which they ran way back in June:

"Well, every time we turn around we trip over another mass grave. That slows us down considerably."

Needless to say, they didn't use it. Well, they ran it in the runners-up list, but not on the main list. The main list included such knee-slappers as:

"We *did* find weapons of mass destruction, we just can't show them to you because they're... um... they're invisible!"


"We dig and dig, but that damn sand keeps refilling our holes."

Funniest dang thing I've read all day.

(Of course, it isn't that hard to beat naval law reading for comedy value. Damn study.)
