John Ashcroft's Tit

The world of politics is a funny place.  Presidents choke on pret-
zels.  President's daughters (and now nieces!) are arrested.  And
John Ashcroft's Justice Department is terrorized by a tit.  No, not
one belonging to Britney Spears.  Nor either of Madonna's twos.  In
fact, 'taint even a *fleshy* mammary that's frightened these mam-
mals.  Rather, 'tis an aluminum boob that's bothering the Attorney
General.  As cheekily reported last week, the nation's top law-en-
forcement agency purchased $15,770 worth of curtains to cover the
Spirit of Justice and the Majesty of Law, two statues that've stood
in the department's Great Hall since the Thirties.  The problem?
Well, while the latter merely depicts a lion-clothed man, the for-
mer shows a woman wearing a toga, arms raised, and, gasp!, right
breast exposed.  And, as any self-respecting, ta-ta minded photog-
rapher would do when covering the AG's appearances, they'd try (and
succeed) at shooting "Jugs" Ashcroft with an enormous boobie above
his head. Which I guess he doesn't appreciate.

At the risk of negatively reinforcing such comically ripe taxpayer
expenditures, allow me to present a handful of *lower-cost* alter-
natives.  It's a titillating problem, but I think I've got a grasp
on it...

  o drop banner over offending boob, sell advertising space for
    milk products

  o enlist MIT students to build giant Wonder-Bra, cover with
    giant cashmere sweater

  o change building name from "Great Hall of Justice" to "Great
    Hall of Hooters"

  o fling mud at said tit, promote "Live Nude Wrestling Every

  o replace with clothed statue, ship existing one to Dollywood

  o open gift shop, sell tee-shirts saying "I visited Washington
    and all I got were these lousy boobs"

  o rope off area, charge visitors five dollars to pose with
    giant guzzonga

  o leave as-is, announce formation of task force investigating
    Constitutionality of banning the word "abreast"

  o spend $25 at Radio Shack, win support of infant voters by
    adding electronic suckling sounds

  o just move the podium, stupid.

Al Gore Beard

Saw Fuzzy Face on television today, speaking to some group in a
news clip.

So who does Tipper's Better resemble *this* week?

I saw a vintage GI Joe action figure.

From the Seventies.
