Cha cha cha Cheney! Wednesday! Funny!

OK, so this is old news. Still, some of the jokes are funny enough to stand the test of time.
WASHINGTON, D.C. - A white house source stated that Congress is considering awarding Vice President Dick Cheney the Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian commendation, for his act of bravery in shooting an attorney. The source was quoted to say, "All Americans have wanted to shoot a lawyer at one time or another, and Cheney actually had the balls to do it."

In a related story, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, which issues hunting licenses, said that it will start requiring hunters wishing to bag a lawyer to have the new "lawyer stamp" on their hunting license. Currently Texas hunters are required to carry stamps for hunting birds, deer, and bear at a cost of $7 annually. The new lawyer stamp will cost $100, but open season will be all year long.

The department further stated that although the lawyer stamp comes at a hefty price, sales have been brisk, and it is expected to generate revenues in excess of $3 billion the first year. Other states are considering similar hunting license stamps.
