How Many Times Must a Man Look Up . . .

This will go down as one of my all-time favorites:

Incoming cloud forces Bush into safe bunker

The Guardian

President George Bush was bundled into an underground bunker, Dick Cheney was evacuated to an "undisclosed location" and heavily armed secret servicemen took up defensive positions when a fast-moving cloud scudded towards the White House, it was reported yesterday.

(Article continued on The Guardian's website.)

It reminds me of the Conan O'Brien show where Triumph the Insult Comic Dog was shown doing the weather report on a local Hawaiian news station:

"Oh, my, Hawaii is threatened by . . . . . clouds!"

It would be damned difficult to make this stuff up.

Are you serious??  A cloud?  I didn't click on the story but I thought "well small plane or blimp or something" but a cloud?  Oh you know someone got canned over that one.  And isn't Dick Cheney always in undisclosed hideouts?  Gotta watch SNL this week and see if they spoof this one.

Big O.
