Osama and the angel

Monday, July 3, 2006

Dear Editor,

Osama bin Laden went to heaven and was greeted by George Washington, who slapped him and yelled, "How dare you try to destroy the nation I helped conceive!"

Patrick Henry then approached and punched Osama in the nose. After that, James Madison entered and kicked him in the groin. He was followed by an angry Thomas Jefferson, who whacked Osama over the head with a cane.

The thrashing continued as John Randolph, James Monroe and 66 other early Americans came in and unleashed their anger at the terrorist leader.

Suddenly, as Osama lay writhing in unbearable pain, an angel appeared. "This is not what you promised me," Osama said to the angel. "Come on, Osama," the angel replied. "I told you there would be 72 Virginians waiting for you in heaven."
