If this horrifies you, (and I can think of at least three regular readers who won’t be pleased) I apologogise in advance. Here’s a joke:
Q: How many Al-Sahaf’s (Iraqi Information Minister) does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: “There is no need to change the lightbulb! It glows brilliantly still! – basking in the glorious power of the wholly intact and fully functional power stations! The room is not dark! There is no bruise on your knee from the furniture you didn’t walk into – Allah be Praised!”
This comes from (seriously) www.We Love The Iraqi Information Minister.com (without spaces). It’s apparently getting 500,000 hits a day, so it’s not all me! One of the dozens of quotes on the site reads, “It has been rumored that we have fired Scud missiles into Kuwait. I am here now to tell you, we do not have any Scud missiles – and I don’t know why they were fired into Kuwait.” Go have a look and yes, you can even buy the T-Shirt – well actually the barbecue apron!
