1. Have you been checking out the "Blowback" section...
...on the website? The feedback has been 90% positive. I think Gary scored with this one.

2. When I told my husband BD had lost a leg in Iraq, he was actually
fairly sad about it.

I don't follow it as closely as I'd like, but when I see it every so often, it always scores.

There's another thread here somewhere about what political cartoonists have been up to. One of them drew a cartoon of a couple at their breakfast table together. The man's reading the newspaper and frowning. He says something like - "the war's not going well." The woman's reading too. Her paper is labeled "Doonesbury" and she's looking just as dejected and says "I know."

5. Don't care about the profanity, but humor and lost limbs don't mix
Just seems in bad taste.

7. actually....
its not really funny :( but what it is doing is bringing the war home for some, and making a statement about it. I think it has hit the right note, myself.
