In Lansing, apple confiscated as threat to Vice President!
Here:

http://abclocal.go.com/wjrt/news/071604_NW_da_elex.html

(snip)

Despite some rumblings from within the Republican party, every indication is that Cheney will remain on the ticket. It was a kinder, gentler Cheney at a Lansing rally. He was accompanied by his wife and Sen. John McCain.

(snip)

On a personal note, the United States Secret Service examined my briefcase on the way in. I was carrying, among other things, an apple and a banana.

They confiscated the apple, saying I could have thrown it at the vice president. But the banana made it through.

****

I'd want the banana anyway.

4. Bananas and Chimps
go together. But it's an apple a day that keeps the doctor away. It must be an SS conspiracy to get rid of Cheney. :evilgrin:

5. They have AMD! We must invade with the full force of the United States
and make Lansing safe from the pectin menace! Call out the Guard! There is fruit salad to be made!

So, are they gonna start making people go naked to see/hear the Chicken Hawk in Chief and his pet primate pretend president from now on?
