Just this once, I promise

I'd made a conscious and deliberate decision to stop (or more accurately, not start) making war posts, because anyone who wants to soak up the Shock-n'-Awe™ has more than enough media outlets catering to that whim. The following quote was too funny to let pass by, though (via CNN):

Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Sahef said the real situation in Umm Qasr is different from its portrayal in the media.

"Those Iraqi fighters, those heroes at Umm Qasr, are teaching the American and British invaders a lesson," he said. "Those Iraqi fighters are slapping those gangsters on the face, and then when they flee, they will kick their backsides."
He then added: "Beeyotch!"

Which planet is closest to the sun? (hint -- it's Mercury...)

create him.”
