The humorless crank in me finds it mildly annoying that the Iraqi information minister is now widely known as "Comical Ali" -- as if, you know, one camel jockey is the same as another, and there's no difference between him (his name isn't Ali, of course; it's Mohammed Saeed al Sahaf) and "Chemical" Ali Hassan Al-Majid, mastermind of the chemical-weapons campaign against the Kurds in the late 1980s.

On the other hand, I have to confess that the boxer shorts make me laugh.

By contrast, this doesn't make me laugh. This wouldn't make me laugh if I were Donald fricking Rumsfeld. Free Republic's "wits" don't exactly have a light touch, do they?

(UPDATE: Oh, and these are dumb fun.)
