Operation Desert Santa

Postby BlueBirdPoof » Tue Dec 16, 2003 5:16 pm

Okay, it's from an Onion newstory
http://www.theonion.com/3949/top_story.html
(the link will expire in a week or so)
but the name is so Burning Man. Just had to share.

This was a good article, but does anyone notice the irony of the situation?
As I walk along the hollowed land in the form of a spirit, I will rise once again to lead my people to victory and glory.

Obviously someone has never heard of The Onion.

No, I have not heard of or have read the Onion, but this could be a could place to get started on the project.

Sad to say that link is not far from reality!

I knew (or have known) that.

I've been having really idle thoughts of just what happened if you dropped burners into Iraq.

Just my Berkeley upbringing, I'm sure; but then my mother thought Pepperland was People's Park.

A few would be smart enough to try and find a way West to Jordan.
