"...and then I cleverly manouvered my head between his body and the crook of his elbow in order to repeatedly bash his knuckles with my face."

Haven't heard too much from him lately...hmmmmm Wink

That's because he's desperately trying to find somewhere in Iraq where he can stand in front of a TV camera without US soldiers in the background.

I got a real kick out of watching that guy trying to explain why all the battles they were winning kept getting closer to Baghdad.

BREAK - BREAK

They just located the former Iraqi Minister of Information. They got him as he was showing up for work as Chevy's new marketing director. Sources say leadership at General Motors was impressed with his recent performance and felt he had a lot to offer the organization.

Sing with me people! Like Iraq...

I knew it!!! I figured MSS was using his prime time exposure to demonstrate his stellar acting abilities (ala reality TV contestants).

Spinmasters are in high demand and MSS is the cream of the cream. Chevy is just one milestone in MSS's career, other appearances that you may not have seen and famous quotes.

- Dot com stock analyst (BUY, BUY, BUY the Internet economy is recession proof).

- Enron PR. (Enron is positioned to be the growth stock of the decade.)

- Worldcom (Depreciating operating expenses is definitely GAAP!)

Rumor has it that his next assignment will be a stop in the French government in smoothing over U.S. relations. (Veto, what veto?! We weren't going to veto anything!).

Say what you want - you say my Chevyism is insecure...it's you Ford people that had to try and recruit Christ just to compete. As for the Iraqi info minister...I think we all know that he's either lying under a heap of rubble or arguing with his new roommates Osama and Saddam over who's turn it is to clean up the cave.

If he can ever be found, MSS may have other options available to him on reality TV. Perhaps "Joe Information Minister" might hook him up with 20 third world countries where the goal is to see which one is gullible enough to stick with him 'til the end.

Of course, he might also take over for Jeff Probst on "Survivor: Middle East," where contestants outwit, outlast, and outplay each other in competition to evade US Special Forces. The winner would receive a million units of worthless currency and a nice palace ottoman.

Then there's always "Fear Factor" which would include such challenges as eating a ham sandwich, spending an afternoon in an Iraqi tank, or attending a Kurd family reunion. Winners receive an all-expense paid vacation in Cuba.

Don't forget the Big Brother option that will always be available.

The house: Pick your favorite state pen. My vote goes to one that has lax security and a history of unruly prisoners.

The roomates: osama, sadam, and mss. Plus a whole prison of joyful prison mates that will surely take a shine to their new comrades.

The winner that survives the longest gets to see how much longer they will survive. Its the game that ends only when you cease to exist!
