This IS A Joke, Right????

WASHINGTON, D.C. - A White House source stated that Congress is considering awarding Vice-President Dick Cheney the Medal of Freedom, the national 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's 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 "lawyers stamp" will cost $100, but open season will be all year long.

The department further stated that although the "lawyers stamp" comes at hefty price, sales have been brisk and it is believed it will generate annual revenues in excess of $3 billion dollars the first year. Other states are considering the move.

    This could probably fund health care in the US! ;)

    Hi Bridget. Missed your humor, so I'll try to at least drop by every few weeks.

    As for lawyers, they need to do that in California. If anyone is wondering why our health care costs are so high, look no further than the lawyers. For the record, they're making more money than the doctors. No wonder nobody wants to be a doctor anymore. This really is sad.

    Zomb, so glad to hear from you!!! It's been WAY too long!! If you send me your e mail, I'll put you on distribution for jokes. There are many more than what I post here (mostly the movie type).

    Agree re lawyers, I have an uncle who's a retired U.S. doctor. The experiences he's had with lawyers are horrendous.

    Come back soon!!

    Hugs, Bridg
