Chuckle du jour....

Got this off the WorldNetDaily jokes page. Thought it was worth repeating.


Katie Couric, Charlie Gibson, Brian Williams and a tough old U.S. Marine sergeant were captured by terrorists in Iraq. The leader of the terrorists told them he'd grant each of them one last request before they were beheaded and dragged through the streets.

Katie Couric said, "Well, I'm a Southerner, so I'd like one last plate of fried chicken." The leader nodded to an underling who left and returned with the chicken. Couric ate it all and said, "Now I can die content."

Charlie Gibson said, "I'm living in New York , so I'd like to hear the song 'The Moon and Me' one last time." The terrorists' leader nodded to another terrorist who had studied the Western world and knew the music. He returned with some rag-tag musicians and played the song. Gibson was satisfied.

Brian Williams said, "I'm a reporter to the end. I want a tape recorder so I can describe the scene here and what's about to happen. Maybe, someday, someone will hear it and know that I was on the job till the end." The leader directed an aide to hand over the tape recorder and Williams dictated his comments. He then said, "Now I can die happy."

The leader turned and said, "And now, Mr. Marine, what is your final wish?"

"Kick me in the behind," said the Marine.

"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 behind," insisted the Marine.

So the leader shoved him into the yard and kicked him in the behind. The Marine went sprawling, but rolled to his knees, pulled a 9 mm pistol from inside his cammies and shot the leader dead. In the resulting confusion, he emptied his sidearm into six terrorists, with his knife he slashed the throat of one with an AK-47, which he took, and sprayed the rest of the terrorists killing another eleven.

In a flash, all of them were either dead or fleeing for their lives. As the Marine was untying Couric, Gibson and Williams, they asked him, "Why didn't you just shoot them all in the first place? Why did you ask him to kick you in the behind?"

"What!?!" replied the Marine, "and have you three report that I was the aggressor....?"


  1. Excellent illustration of journalistic bias -- or I should say what passes for "journalism" these days. But the extreme bravery of the Marine is right on -- so maybe the story isn't an exaggeration... Thanks a bunch for posting this, sure lifted my spirits tonight! :D

  2. Awesome chuckle! Forward this to Governor Palin!

  3. Thanks for the laugh. Yes, yes, anyone that believes the "news" is much more than left-wing entertainment isn't paying attention.

  4. Perhaps you should read some J.H. Yoder. This kind of humour is never funny!

  5. Superbly funny! I actually laughed out loud at the punchline. I hope you don't mind, but I posted a link to this over at my blog today. Thanks.

  6. Patrice - I like this story and I like that you are "a practical constitutional Libertarian stay-at-home gun-toting homeschooling cow-milking rural-living Christian mom." Wish you were my neighbor.

  7. The original of that joke had an Israeli special unit guy instead of a Marine. The punch-line was that they only fight in self-defense.
