A Fitting Fate?

It's the classic "riches to rags" story, with a very happy ending.

I had very similar thoughts to what the picture suggests:

"Doesn't Saddam's capture really illustrate this Republican administration's callousness toward the homeless?"

When I mentioned this to my son, he said, "Pops, I could swear I saw that guy panhandling in downtown Houston earlier this week!"

This is very funny, the kneejerk left bashing in a comment far less so.

An insult to homeless people everywhere.

Now have a look at my mod of the official pic:

Posted by Buttkiss at December 14, 2003 07:28 PM

Uh.. from an objective standpoint, the first picture is only slightly funny and Buttkiss' is just lame.

His tongue sticking out and a swastika between his eyes?

Anyone can be funny, but people with no sense of humor are hilarious.
