Turkey Begs For Pardon, Earns $14 The Hard Way

“Pride slays thanksgiving, but an humble mind is the soil out of which thanks naturally grow. A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.
—Henry Ward Beecher

As usual, a number of perps were brought before the chief executive to appeal their case. Usually the president picks the prettiest one with the best excuse as to why he shouldn’t be eviserated and eaten.

A number of soldiers in attendance at the White House tried to plead with the president to alter his stance on the war in Iraq, but with his typical resolve and pride in what he considers his moral obligation, refused their petitiion and send them to Baghdad reiterating that, even though “we’re not staying the course,” we are indeed not leaving Iraq but changing in the way we stay the course. Many present were seen scratching their heads. The president had a quizical expression on his face and asked if anyone had a cigarette.
