Saddam's doctors [rec.humor.funny]

Saddam's doctors (Steven R. Brown)

Attributed to Jay Leno, in this evening's paper:

It's amazing how well prepared Saddam Hussein is. In his bunker with him he has a heart surgeon in case something happens to his heart, a podiatrist in case something happens to his feet, and a proctologist in case something happens to his brain.

Hottest Movie in IRAQ [rec.humor.funny]

Hottest Movie in IRAQ

rahul@cblph.UUCP (Rahul Jindal +1 614 860 4249)

Which is the hottest movie in IRAQ?

Honey I SCUD the YIDs!!

Cleared by U.S. Military [rec.humor.funny]

Cleared by U.S. Military (Dale Larson)

While watching the Superbowl half-time show, I saw video depicting tanks travelling across sand dunes with titles saying "cleared by U.S. military." My immediate reaction was say that the area used to be filled with urban sprawl and that our military had really been effective in leveling it all.

Boys and girls [rec.humor.funny]

Boys and girls

No more supporting "our boys in the field." Even unreconstructed generals now refer to "our fighting men and women." To paraphrase NPR's Cokie Roberts, it won't be the first time it took a woman to make a boy into a man.

Re: maybe yes, maybe no [rec.humor.funny]

Re: maybe yes, maybe no (Local Violator)

University of Washington, Seattle

We now all know the original sick joke:

Q. What do Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and Baghdad have in common?

A. Nothing, yet.

Here's a variation:

Q. What do Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and Baghdad have in common?

A. We've bombed the shit out of all of 'em!!

(No Offense.....) :D

Elevator Joke, sort of [rec.humor.funny]

Elevator Joke, sort of (patrick k ferrick)

Here's another possible entry in "The Militant Ex-Smoker's Handbook"

I saw this sign in an elevator recently:

Smoking in This Elevator
Prohibited by Ordnance

Pretty gonzo, I'd say!

Maybe a local company is testing it on behalf of an Iraqi firm !!!

Frozen oil prices [rec.humor.funny]

Frozen oil prices (Thomas M. Niccum)

Last night CNN reported that four major oil companies have promised to freeze oil prices during operation "Desert Storm."

I suppose that they'll keep this policy in effect no matter how low the price of oil drops.

SADDAM HUSSEIN is just an anagram for HIDE US, DAMN ASS. (Kevin J Podsiadlik)

How to scare Saddam Hussein [rec.humor.funny]

How to scare Saddam Hussein

One sure-fire way to put sheer terror into the heart of Saddam Hussein:

Have George Bush make the following statement in his next State of the Union address:

"Read my lips, no nuclear weapons against Iraq."

Quote from the Iraqi invasion [rec.humor.funny]

Quote from the Iraqi invasion (D.A. Harris)

Most memorable quote of the War:

"He asked for it, he got it, it just happened not to be a Toyota," said Prince Fahd of Saudi Arabia, of Saddam Hussein, during an interview with NBC's Arthur Kent in Dhahran approximately 12 hours after the first invasion of Iraq by Allied forces.

Iraq vs. Canada [rec.humor.funny]

Iraq vs. Canada


I heard today that Iraq has developed a special weapon for use against the Canadian Navy. It's called a rust-seeking missile.

They're replacing 100,000 Desert Marines with 5,000 women with PMS.

They're meaner, and they can retain water for 7 days.

Camels [rec.humor.funny]

Camels (EN Div, USA-CECER)

Camels are so mean spirited because they retain water every single day. (Bob Church)

Considering the luck Hussein's been having with his Scud missiles and anti-aircraft guns lately I'd bet he can't use the bathroom without getting his shoes wet.

Saddam Hussein holding back [rec.humor.funny]

Saddam Hussein holding back

flak@mcgp1.UUCP (Dan Flak)

McCaw Cellular Communications Inc.

According to the news services, Saddam Hussein stated that he has committed "only a fraction of his forces." (In other words, he's committing only those forces that are still operational).

(Not mine, my 17 year old son's.)

Saddam's Communication System... [rec.humor.funny]

Saddam's Communication System...

During the first press conference with Secretary Cheney and General Powell, one reporter asked how Saddam Hussein could communicate with the United States in the event that he would want to negotiate. The general completely avoided the question.

However, recent reports indicate a weak signal emanating from central Iraq. Analysts are confirming that the voice is that of Saddam Hussein. Roughly translated, the message reads "I'VE FALLEN... AND I CAN'T GET UP!!"

My original, with apologies to Jay Leno.

Stuart Ericson AT&T Bell Laboratories

What to do with Iraq [rec.humor.funny]

What to do with Iraq (J. Peter Neergaard)

The world faces a couple of problems...

What should the US do with Iraq after the war?

Saddam is very interested in linkage to Palestine...

The Palestinians have been looking for a homeland...

The clear solution would seem to be, the creation of the new Palestinian Homeland... Iraqestine.

Patriot missiles [rec.humor.funny]

Patriot missiles

Q: What does one Raytheon engineer say to another?

A: How about them Patriots?

Mrs. Saddam [rec.humor.funny]

Mrs. Saddam (Donna Mitchell)

From Tom Blair in the San Diego Union, January 20, 1991:

What is Saddam Hussein's wife telling neighbors who ask why she's leaving the country?

a) "We're having some remodeling done."

b) "The exterminators are coming."

c) "We're getting the carpets bombed."

d) All of the above.

Week Ending joke [rec.humor.funny]

Week Ending joke

tjfs@tadtec.UUCP (Tim Steele)

From the British satirical radio show "Week Ending":

Adviser: "Well, Mr. President, the deadline's expired. What shall we do?"

Bush: "Send in Colin Powell!"

Adviser: "Isn't that rather a limited strike, sir?"

Bush: "No, I mean send him in to my office!"

Powell: "Sir!"

Bush: "What would be the result of an air strike on Wednesday night?"

Powell: "Millions of innocent civilians killed and the city razed to the ground, Sir!"

Bush: "You know I don't understand that military jargon! Give it to me in words I can understand."

Powell: "Personnel density adjustment and strategic collateral upheaval, Sir!"

Bush: "That bad?!"

Standard Iraqi bidding [rec.humor.funny]

Standard Iraqi bidding (Scott Huddleston)

An original:

At my last bridge tournament most pairs played the standard American system. But one pair caused quite a stir with a new bidding system, standard Iraqi: whenever the opponents opened the bidding, they threw rocks at the next table. (Eric Griswold)

The British and the war [rec.humor.funny]

The British and the war

(This is original)

I think that the best reason to have the British involved in the Gulf War is watching British journalist's distaste at having to say the word "scud."

Iraqi Career Moves [rec.humor.funny]

Iraqi Career Moves (Doug Krause)

U. of California, Irvine

Q: What is the best Iraqi job?

A: Foreign Ambassador

dhansen@amiganet.UUCP (Dave Hansen)

How many Iraqis does it take to screw in a light bulb?

None. They can't turn them on anyway.

Iraq vs. France [rec.humor.funny]

Iraq vs. France (Steve Loughran)

So how did George Bush persuade the French to take part in the war with Iraq?

The only reason I can think of is that the CIA came up with irrefutable evidence that Saddam Hussein was a member of Greenpeace.

War in the gulf [rec.humor.funny]

War in the gulf (Ken Drottar x2582 dept303)

Bill Mandel, in the 1/20/91 San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle describes the gulf war as "War Lite, high in accomplishments with two-thirds fewer casualties than our regular war."

Armageddon [rec.humor.funny]

Armageddon (Richard Link)

Heard this one on Paul Harvey's syndicated radio show yesterday. He claims it's true.

There is a rabbi in Israel, very concerned about the Iraq war and Scud missile attacks, who believes that this is finally Armageddon.

However, he tells his congregation, that being a pragmatist he is going to ask the Lord when he finally arrives:

"Is this your first or your second visit?"

Funny gulf quotes from CNN folks [rec.humor.funny]

Funny gulf quotes from CNN folks (Barbara Helen Hardy)

I SWEAR I heard these:

"You can never tell who you are going to run into in a bomb shelter."

Taking censorship too far:

"According to the military, the weather has cleared...."

RE: Wolf Blitzer [rec.humor.funny]

RE: Wolf Blitzer (John Hench)

Brad, I asked an Austrian friend what the Blitzer in Wolf Blitzer meant, and he told me it meant "Flasher." He went on to explain some of the other names of the CNN crew:

	Bierbauer - Beer Farmer 
	Scherzer  - Joker 
	Begleiter - Accompianist 

I thought that this might interest the author of joke number 2190 who likes the inherent humor of the name "Wolf Blitzer," because it seems that there are quite a few other cute ones as well....

The Weather in Kuwait [rec.humor.funny]

The Weather in Kuwait (Rob F)

A quote from the Wall Street Journal, 1/25/91

As the first days of the war passed, the computer underground's particular brand of humor, always a bit warped, has taken a newly morbid tone. An oil-worker in Khahran posted this weather forecast on Last Outpost (BBS):

"Baghdad will be bright and sunny, with lows in the mid-40s and highs in the upper 10,000s. Winds will be from the south, southeast, and southwest at 1,500-1,800 knots. Sunscreen 300 is recommended. Chances of precipitation of molten objects are 90-99%"

Competitive Advertising [rec.humor.funny]

Competitive Advertising (Scott Silvey)

The Iraqi Air Force: We fly more international flights out of Baghdad than any other carrier in the world.

Recently the US Air Force slogan has been changed to "Aim Low."

US Air over-night delivery service:

When you absolutely need to get it there over-night ... we GUARANTEE delivery before 4:30 in the morning. The US Air Force, we run the most dangerous ship in the shipping business.

The Navy, it's not just a job, it's an extended middle-east vacation cruise.

(These are originals)

"NEVER underestimate your enemy ..." [rec.humor.funny]

"NEVER underestimate your enemy ..." (Scott Silvey)

Despite the negative media coverage, the Iraqi ground forces are actually performing their task with alarming success. Clearly, their first objective in the campaign is to destroy the massive coalition stockpiles of conventional weapons.
