The Mother of All Quargmires

Saturday, June 17, 2006

Whew, I've been out of circulation for a long time. However, I just learned some remarkable news that I must share. Peace is breaking out. Yes, the dogs of war have been leashed and a ferocious 102 year old war has finally ended with a peace treaty.

I wonder if there are any holdouts that need to be talked into surrendering?

That's cool but what about the Turkmenbashi? You can't leave us hanging like this Ambi.

Oh, he's up to his usual insanity.

He's completed his Ice Palace which has a gigantic ice skating rink in it. Apparently he is now insistig that his cabinet ministers show up at least once a week at 7am to do some skating.

Speaking of cabinet ministers, he continues to purge them at the drop of a hat. The good news is nobody is trying to bribe themselves into a cushy government job because they just end up getting tossed in jail.

I guess the latest news is he has been bulldozing historic buildings in his capital. I can't wait to see what the urban renewal plan he has up his sleeze. I'm sure whatever it is, it will be a doozey.

I should have known that.
