    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Stephen: I'm offering back-to-school savings. Save yourself the pain and don't go back to school!

      • Stephen: …the answer is tonight's Word: Made In Iraq. The Pentagon has come up with a plan to sell clothing made in Mosul and Najaf here in America through retailers like Wal-Mart and Sears. Is it too much to hope for Mary Kate and Ashley brand burkas? Nation, this is great news. Getting our clothing produced in Iraq will be so cheap! ($500,000,000,000 and counting) For some reason Iraq's economy is in shambles which means Iraqis will work for practically nothing. (They work over there so we don't have to work over here) This plan will give Iraqis the jobs that they desperately need and give us the tube socks we desperately don't want to pay more than $1.99 for. (We'll be greeted as consumers) But if we are really going to replace China, we are going to need more than just cheap clothes, we're going to need cheap everything. That's why we should use the Iraqi model on any country that has something I want. (What country produces attention?) Now off the top of my head, I'm thinking Sweden. I'm sick of paying forty bucks for an IKEA bedroom set. I had to build it myself and I was left with three legs and a drawer. If we launch an assault on Stockholm, we can get our bjarnums and statleeks for pennies on the kroner. (Very afjordable) But for now Iraq's a good start. If we can get the Pentagon's business plan to work, it will silence the critics who say that the war has shown no results. The results will be right in your wallet, which, fingers crossed, will soon be made in Iraq, (Made in Iraq)

        And that's the Word.

      • Stephen: My guest tonight is an artist who works with Legos. This is America. Use Lincoln Logs!

      • Stephen: It seems every one of China's products contains lead, except their lead, which is mostly cardboard.

      • Stephen: Tonight, Chinese Barbie toys are tainted with heavy metals. But on the plus side, Ken's finally got some lead in his pencil.
