"New rumors that Saddam Hussein is planning to flee to a castle in Libya with 10 billion dollars. Now President Bush doesn't know whether to nuke him or give him a tax cut." —Craig Kilborn
"In a speech earlier today President Bush said if Iraq gets rid of Saddam Hussein, he will help the Iraqi people with food, medicine, supplies, housing, education – anything that's needed. Isn't that amazing? He finally comes up with a domestic agenda – and it's for Iraq. Maybe we could bring that here if it works out." —Jay Leno
"Some members of Congress are so upset with this thing with France that they want to impose trade sanctions against French products. They want to ban French products like Evian. And you thought Hollywood celebrities were against the war before....!"

"More coming out about Saddam Hussein. We now know he takes Viagra and he has as many as six mistresses. No wonder Congress is reluctant to take action against this guy — he's one of their own." —Jay Leno

"President Bush said it's now time for a change in Iraq and he wants them to have a Western-style democracy like ours. So right now in Iraq, the economy is collapsing, businessmen are corrupt, and Hussein wants his son to take over as president. Sounds like mission accomplished." —Jay Leno

There was a Frenchman, an Englishman and Claudia Schiffer sitting together in a carriage in a train going through Provence. Suddenly the train went through a tunnel and as it was an old style train, there were no lights in the carriages and it went completely dark. Then there was a kissing noise and the sound of a really loud slap. When the train came out of the tunnel, Claudia Schiffer and the Englishman were sitting as if nothing had happened and the Frenchman had his hand against his face as if he had been slapped there. The Frenchman was thinking: 'The English fella must have kissed Claudia Schiffer and she missed him and slapped me instead.' Claudia Schiffer was thinking: 'The French fella must have tried to kiss me and actually kissed the Englishman and got slapped for it.' And the Englishman was thinking: 'This is great. The next time the train goes through a tunnel I'll make another kissing noise and slap that French bastard again.'
The following is allegedly the transcript of a radio conversation of a US naval ship with Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in October 1995, as released by the Chief of Naval Operations:
Canadians: Please divert your course 15 degrees the South to avoid a collision.
Americans: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees the North to avoid a collision.
Canadians: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.
Americans: This is the Captain of a US Navy ship. I say again, divert YOUR course.
Canadians: No. I say again, you divert YOUR course.
Americans: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS LINCOLN, THE SECOND LARGEST SHIP IN THE UNITED STATES' ATLANTIC FLEET. WE ARE ACCOMPANIED BY THREE DESTROYERS, THREE CRUISERS AND NUMEROUS SUPPORT VESSELS. I DEMAND THAT YOU CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES NORTH, I SAY AGAIN, THAT'S ONE FIVE DEGREES NORTH, OR COUNTER-MEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.
Canadians: This is a lighthouse. Your call.
So, these are trying times for all Americans, and no one is under more stress than George W. Bush. One late night he slipped into bed and said to himself, "This has been so difficult - and I'm under such stress. I wish there was a way to get some help. "Then he dreamed. In his dream, George Washington visited him. Dubya said to him, "Oh, George Washington! Please, tell me, do you have any advice for how to help me help America?" George Washington nodded and said, "You should promote unity, and patriotism, and uphold the common welfare." And Dubya thanked him and told him how nice it was to meet him, but he hadn't quite understood the words and he was a little disatisfied. So he dreampt some more, and this time, Thomas Jefferson visited him. "Oh, Thomas Jefferson!" Bush exlaimed. "Please, tell me, do you have any advice for how to help me help America?" Thomas Jefferson thought for a bit, and then said, "You should promote diversity, and the common man, and eschew political parties." And Dubya thanked him and told him how nice it was to meet him, but he hadn't quite understood the words and he was a little disatisfied. Finally, he dreampt again, and this time Abraham Lincoln came to visit him. "Oh, Abraham Lincoln!" Bush exlaimed. "Please, tell me, do you have any advice for how to help me help America?" Abraham Lincoln smiled. "Go see a play."

Al Gore and George Dubya Bush walk into a diner for breakfast and sit down. A waitress comes over, hands them menus and asks, "So, what would you like, boys?" Gore scans the menu briefly, and then orders, "Can I have some oatmeal and a glass of orange juice?" "All righty. And how about you, sir?" the waitress asks Dubya. Dubya says, "Hey, can I have a quickie?" Shocked, the waitress slaps him across the face and storms off, much to Dubya's apprent confusion. When she's gone, Gore leans over, looks at Dubya's menu, and whispers, "It's pronounced quiche."
Q: How do the US and the UK know Iraq has weapons of mass destruction?

The Canadian people wish to express to the American people that while we do not like President George W. Bush, we do not hold the American people responsible for his election. After all, it's not like most of you voted for him or anything.
