Bush To Water Ski Over Shark Tank

Following the media's breathless coverage of his landing on the USS Lincoln, President George Bush today announced his intention to don water skis and jump a tank of man-eating sharks. The event, to take place on February 3, 2004, will be carried live on FOX, CNN, MSNBC, ESPN, ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, UPN, HBO, The Food Channel, The Weather Channel, Comedy Central, The Home Shopping Network and Spice, with publicity photos to follow in every American newspaper and weekly. When asked why the stunt was scheduled for the same day as the South Carolina Democratic Primary, Bush urged reporters to "sit on it"

And while I'm media-bashing: check out the "Reuters Photo" that accompanies this story. We know we've found Saddam's WMDs this time because the State Department has secured some clip art of a truck.

Update: Laurie Boris writes "Send that truck clip art to North Korea. That'll give 'em something to think about!!"

Update: Apparently disgruntled with the poor quality of the "Reuters Photos," Yahoo! has now switched to the vastly superior AFP Photos.
