    The Three Stooges were never funny. Giving it contempory slick doesn't make it any funnier.

    Mr Otto,

    It has come to my attention that you have posted what people commonly refer to as a 'joke' on the Eurogamer thread under the name 'amusing'.

    I am writing to complain that I did not find the aforementioned article very funny and in fact resembled 'comedy' of the black and white era, a time which lacks any kind of comedy value. As you will know you from my incisive posts on this forum you have broken one of my four mysterious rules and therefore I am putting you on a warning. One more and you can consider yourself *polka'd*.

    I would appreciate it if you took everything very seriously and attempted to follow my lead by having an anal passage tighter than a vice.

    Your sincerely,


    Feersum Puppet

    By James Sherman


    (We take you now to the Oval Office.)


    George: Condi! Nice to see you. What's happening?

    Condi: Sir, I have the report here about the new leader of China.

    George: Great. Lay it on me.

    Condi: Hu is the new leader of China.

    George: That's what I want to know.

    Condi: That's what I'm telling you.

    George: That's what I'm asking you. Who is the new leader of China?

    Condi: Yes.

    George: I mean the fellow's name.

    Condi: Hu.

    George: The guy in China.

    Condi: Hu.

    George: The new leader of China.

    Condi: Hu.

    George: The Chinaman!

    Condi: Hu is leading China.

    George: Now whaddya' asking me for?

    Condi: I'm telling you Hu is leading China.

    George: Well, I'm asking you. Who is leading China?

    Condi: That's the man's name.

    George: That's who's name?

    Condi: Yes.

    George: Will you or will you not tell me the name of the new leader of China?

    Condi: Yes, sir.

    George: Yassir? Yassir Arafat is in China? I thought he was in the Middle East.

    Condi: That's correct.

    George: Then who is in China?

    Condi: Yes, sir.

    George: Yassir is in China?

    Condi: No, sir.

    George: Then who is?

    Condi: Yes, sir.

    George: Yassir?

    Condi: No, sir.

    George: Look, Condi. I need to know the name of the new leader of China.
    Get me the Secretary General of the U.N. on the phone.

    Condi: Kofi?

    George: No, thanks.

    Condi: You want Kofi?

    George: No.

    Condi: You don't want Kofi.

    George: No. But now that you mention it, I could use a glass of milk. And then get me the U.N.

    Condi: Yes, sir.

    George: Not Yassir! The guy at the U.N.

    Condi: Kofi?

    George: Milk! Will you please make the call?

    Condi: And call who?

    George: Who is the guy at the U.N?

    Condi: Hu is the guy in China.

    George: Will you stay out of China?!

    Condi: Yes, sir.

    George: And stay out of the Middle East! Just get me the guy at the U.N.

    Condi: Kofi.

    George: All right! With cream and two sugars. Now get on the phone.

    (Condi picks up the phone.)

    Condi: Rice, here.

    George: Rice? Good idea. And a couple of egg rolls, too. Maybe we should send some to the guy in China. And the Middle East. Can you get Chinese food in the Middle East?

    Just felt like joining in with all these long posts

    You've obviously never seen L.A. Story.

    As for the Hu's on first routine, I've heard the original version plenty of times and never thought it was funny. This, however, was! :D

    Blimey. Anyway, I said it was amusing, I didn't say it was new or original. Also, I acknowledge the fact that you will not wet your pants with laughter, though I hoped it might provoke a dry smile. Anyway, there it is, take it or leave it, or if you're a moderator, delete it. :)
