Vice President Dick Cheney met today with Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai and promptly shot him in the face.
“I don’t know how it happened,” said a chastened Cheney. “One moment we were talking,” he said, “then the next minute I realized he looked a bit like a moose and before I knew it – blam!”
This represents the fifteenth world leader who has been shot by Cheney in the past two years. “It’s a good thing for him the Supreme Court is leaning towards confirming the right of individuals to own guns and shoot people in the face,” said a noted constitutional scholar. “Otherwise, and If he weren’t the vice president, it’s quite possible he could wind up in jail or even trigger a war.”
Spokesmen for the Vice President denied the possibility of any significant consequences. “The Vice President may seem a bit careless, but we assure you he is careful to only shoot close friends, or officials of countries where we are already at war.”
President Bush defended the actions of his Vice President, noting “at least he didn’t buy a $4000 prostitute.”
