Am I seeing this correctly?

This lame-ass story made the main board?!

"My God! There was pink sheets on his bed! Pink I tells ya! PINK!!!!"
Another slow day down the Yahoo news-room, eh?

At least five suicide attacks in Iraq against U.S. soldiers have left at least four servicemen dead.

Somehow I don't think this was the kind of math they were hoping for.
2003-04-16 09:39:49 PM  
damn that guy was shot eight times.. thats gotta hurt!!
2003-04-16 09:39:58 PM  
So in other words he was a fag?

i saw this guy on tv earlier, he was talking about how saddams "gold" faucets in his bathrooms were just gold paint, and everything he has is plastic or vinyl, no real gold or italian marble. and he was saying how its small, and out of date, he has a B&W tv in his room and a really old VCR, and a microwave with a turn-dial.

2003-04-16 09:56:49 PM  
so just what was he doing in Saddam's bedroom for 20 minutes with the pink sheets?
2003-04-16 09:57:52 PM  
SADDAM: I dont know if I can sleep (if you know what I mean).

SATAN: [reading Saddam is From Mars, Satan is From Venus] This book is really interesting. It talks about how people communicate differently. Like, I communicate by wanting you to ask me questions, and you communicate-

SADDAM: Hey, that is interestingLets fark!

SATAN: Saddam, Im trying to have a nice conversation with you.

SADDAM: [revealing a very realistic-looking dildo] Hey Satan

SATAN: Oh! Now, that is just not appropriate!

SADDAM: Aw, cmon, Im just farkin with you. [tossing it aside] Its not real.

SATAN: Oh, well, thats still not appropriate.

SADDAM: [revealing second dildo] ey, Satan

SATAN: Oh! [gets up to leave]

SADDAM: Hey, its not real, either. Cmon, guy!
2003-04-16 09:58:36 PM  
And i said, "Pink Sheets is my neighbor!"

Thank you, Thank you!

you know why they call camels "ships of the desert!"
2003-04-16 10:05:45 PM  
Those are honorable scars, soldier.
Thank you for doing your bit.
2003-04-16 10:06:54 PM  
It was kind of like, nice of those Iraqi civillians to warn the marines about the suicide bomber and sort of like, save a lot of lives and stuff.
2003-04-16 10:07:12 PM  
Like the soldier, my birthday was also april 10. I am the winner of all.

And was it just me, or did the article actually use the word "fortnight?"

Damn you Apex, I was just about to say....

The last time I heard that was on the Simpsons when the teachers were on strike and Milhouse had a private teacher.

Marine Private First Class Michael Meyer, 18, of Austin, Texas

poor guy got shot in the ass!
2003-04-16 10:15:23 PM  
"I was in his bedroom about 20 minutes before I got hit," .

He *got hit*?

Who *hit it*?
2003-04-16 10:16:45 PM  
It wouldn't be the first time that the US Military had been in the bedroom with Iraq

That's the funniest thing I've read today, not neccisarly that Saddam's got pink sheets, but he guy's stream of though.

thought, thought I meant. *takes another drink*
2003-04-16 10:18:26 PM  
They also forgot to mention that they found Teletubbies and Spongebob Squarepants Season 1 on DVD in his entertainment center.
2003-04-16 10:18:53 PM  
Sure, he had pink sheets. Not one comment from them about the "Hello Kitty" phone on the nightstand though...

Now that I think about it, I wonder if those soldiers are using Sadaam's phone lines to call home. That's gonna run up a biatch of a bill.
2003-04-16 10:19:59 PM  
Well we all know what pink sheets equal. FAG!
2003-04-16 10:41:07 PM  
Nice to know Sadaam is in touch with his feminine side. who would have guessed he was such a sensitive and caring kind of guy.

In regards to the soldier who caught a round in his bum, there's nothing funny about that. That's a very common place for a soldier to get one, because it and your head are the highest points on your body when you're hugging the dirt. It also happens to be the least bad place to get shot. ("Least bad" because any wound can not be qualifiable in any positive manner.) The gluteus maximus is the biggest muscle in the body, and can soak-up more punishment than any other part.

Getting an AK-47 round in your ass in combat is an honorable wound.
Getting an ass full of rock salt while stealing chickens is not.

Pink sheets do NOT equal "fag". As strange and pointless as this story is, colors don't say a thing about your sexuality. It's a big coincidence, the only homosexual men I've ever known or heard about, are what most people consider to be very "manly"...
2003-04-16 10:48:34 PM  
Apparently Saddam Hussein and Anna Nicole Smith both had the same interior designer.

Yes, but pink sheets DO equal crappy bad taste, male female gay or straight!

"Pink? Pink? That wasn't pink, that was the blood of the infidels who committed suicide at the glorious laundromat"

2003-04-16 11:14:09 PM  
while i could talk about pink sheets, i'll just say that i'm very surprised at the age of one of the soldiers that got shot. 18. Dude's a soldier at 18 and has a body full of shrapnel. I'm 20. I've never been to war. I've fired a gun once in my life. I've never killed a living person. The most punishment I've had must have been a split forehead from a night of drinking. This kid is 18, shot and killed people and got punishment as a suicide bomber, too. Sorry, but I'm just surprised. I had no idea kids were going to war.
