Wiretapping fun

It's so clear that Bush's illegal wiretapping is way over the line that a number of like-minded satires have already cropped up. The two best are the New Yorker's and the Onion's. If you find better, by all means deposit it in comments.

From the New Yorker:


...Male Voice 2: So what are you bringing to the potluck?

Male Voice 1: Only thing I got here is an old jar of beets and some crystal meth. The beets are really old. What color are new beets?

Male Voice 2: I was gonna bring Styrofoam plates, and maybe some bootlegged CDs. Hope it rains.

Male Voice 1: Wunderbar. That why you called?

Male Voice 2: Didja watch that Julia Roberts DVD?

Male Voice 1: I hate Julia Roberts.

Male Voice 2: You hate Julia Roberts?

Male Voice 1: More than I don’t value teachers.

Male Voice 2: I feel you. If Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks and some teachers were caught in a rusty bear trap in a part of the Alaskan wilderness newly opened up for oil drilling, I’d hop on the Net and send out billions of spam e-mails in celebration. Billions. Just by hitting "Send."

Male Voice 1: What about that gay-cowboy movie?

Male Voice 2: It sucked. I just couldn’t get over this little voice in my head that kept saying, "These cowboys are gay! And that’s wrong."

[SOUND OF A CAT SHRIEKING]

Male Voice 1: Just kicked my cat.

[LAUGHTER]

Male Voice 2: Wish I could have seen that on tape.

Male Voice 1: Well, I taped it.
