Please Ignore that little man behind the curtain. Please ignore that large army on the outskirts of town.

I was daydreaming a Saturday Night Live sketch today. It involved having an actor playing the Iraqi Information Minister and giving his daily statement about the war, in which he would declare that the Iraqi army was defeating the infidels, blah blah blah. Then he would go on about how Iraq had rejected the advances and that the lies of American media were not to be believed, that flights were still going out of Saddam International Airport and that everything was fine. About that time Will Farrel or some such (dressed out in SOF gear) would pop out of a manhole behind the Information Minister and would commence to bayonet fighting with on stage Iraqi military personnel, having just come up out of a tunnel from the outskirts of Baghdad. After killing the Information Minister, he would look around in that befuddled Will Farrel way, and declare "LIVE from NEW YORK, ITS SATURDAY NIGHT!"
