And I would've gotten away with it too, if it weren't for those pesky Micronesians!

gilligan's island is evacuating? they should have packed some food and some sunscreen that the professor formulated from coconut milk and dates, or some shiat. he was the original mcgyver, or however you spell it.

Must be really well made rafts to hold up that long.

I think they need to find the country where skeletons are an oppressed minority -- if skeletons would try to escape their homeland on homemade rafts, then their country probably needs UN peacekeepers and an IMF donation! Skeletons should be able to live in peaceful harmony with their oppressors, instead of trying to escape to a better life across the sea.

Sooo.... they had to ask the U.S. for help identifying where these skeletons came from? Isn't that sort of answered in the fifth paragraph?

Mr Chotailug said an identity card was found in a wallet on one of the rafts. It belonged to an Indonesian man from Bitung in Sulawesi...

--Is it me? Am I missing something?

What did the male skeleton say to the female skeleton?

"I've got a boner for you."

Cormee: Wow. Let me read it again, this time with one hand.

I identify with your sense of romanticism.

Nice pic Slayer. Brings to mind that old Jason and the Golden Fleece movie. Classic.

Souds to me like the Vikings are having a little trouble keeping their funeral barges alight.

One of the skeletons was also reported to be Drew's dignity.
