In what turned out to be one of the most bizzare accidents to befall the Bush administration so far, Vice President Cheney narrowly escaped with his life today.
“It was all an accident, not unlike the accidental shooting of Cheney’s friend, Harry Whittington, in the quail hunting incident, and our bombing of Iraqi civilians,” said Tony Snow. “The good news is, you can't hurt the Vice President by burning holes in his head. The only way to harm him is to drive a stake through his heart.”
The alien grays, which have been genetically altered to make them look human, have a tendency for rays to shoot out of their eyes when they perceive anything dangerous, like a liberal, a democrat or a child snapping bubble-gum.
