    Okay maybe this should be in Humor, but I don't think so...feel free..

    News Anchor Dan Rather and Peter Jennings, NPR Reporter Cokie Roberts and
    a U.S. Marine were hiking through the desert one day when they were
    captured by Iraqis. They were tied up, led to the village and brought
    before the leader.

    The leader said, "I am familiar with your western custom of granting the
    condemned a last wish. Before we kill and dismember you, do you have any
    last requests?"

    Dan Rather said, "Well, I'm a Texan; so I'd like one last bowl full of
    hot, spicy chili." The leader nodded to an underling who left and returned
    with the chili. Rather ate it all and said, "Now I can die content."
    Peter Jennings said "I am Canadian; so I'd like to hear the English
    National Anthem one last time". The leader nodded to a terrorist who
    studied the
    United States and knew the music was the same as to 'God Bless America'.
    He returned with some rag-tag musicians and played the music. Jennings

    "What?" asked the leader. "Will you mock us in your last hour?"
    "No, I'm not kidding. I want you to kick me in the butt," insisted the

    So the leader shoved him into the open, and kicked him in the butt. The
    Marine went sprawling, but rolled to his knees, pulled a 9mm pistol from
    inside his cammies, and shot the leader dead.
    In the resulting confusion, he leapt to his knapsack, pulled out his M4
    carbine, and sprayed the Iraqis with gunfire. In a flash, the Iraqis were
    dead or fleeing for their lives.
    As the Marine was untying Rather, Jennings and Roberts, they asked him,
    "Why didn't you just shoot them? Why did you ask them to kick you in the
    "What?" said the Marine, "And have you three jackasses call ME the
