What's weird about this? I find it quite erotic, actually.
2001-12-11 08:49:11 AM  
Ho Ho Ho. Merry Christmas and a happy disembowlment to all. Ho Ho Ho.

Season's Beatings, I suppose.

Hallmark, for that special moment that just can't be conveyed with a chainsaw or sledgehammer.
2001-12-11 08:53:13 AM  
They're labeled as terrorists by Washington. So, how long until we drop a few dozen daisy cutters down there? Wheeeeeee!

I want pictures with my articles.

I wonder if this guy got one?

Did anyone else read "Columbine" instead of "Columbian" at first glance?
2001-12-11 09:20:19 AM  
Think of all that snow........
2001-12-11 09:27:10 AM  
It's about time they did this. People expect *more* from their Death Squads these days.

After all, christmas cards are the christian thing to do.

If you think chainsaws and sledge hammers are bad, sometime last year the leftist rebels super glued bombs around a womans head because she wouldn't pay them anymore. It blew the womans head off along with a police officers arm who was trying to get the bombs off.

Got mine yesterday....
2001-12-11 09:45:53 AM  
The kinder, gentler death squad.

Deck the walls with balls of Wally.....

"Merry Christmas From Your Death Squad"

Best. Headline. Ever.

Sounds like a good photoshop contest.
2001-12-11 10:03:52 AM  
Good guerrillas bet bandoliers in their stockings. Bad ones get sporks.
2001-12-11 10:12:47 AM  
it's acts like this that give people hope.
2001-12-11 10:23:59 AM  
I find it interesting that Reuters will refer to these people as Death Squads but won't refer to people that hijack airplanes and crash them into buildings as terrorists.
2001-12-11 10:27:30 AM  
Jingle Bells
Cocaine sells
Escobar is locked away.
Oh what fun it is to snort
and blow the dissidents away.
2001-12-11 10:32:40 AM  
Actually, there are FOUR sides to the conflict: the leftists, the government, the paramilitary death squads....
and the drug lords.

Colombia, not my favorite place for a vacation.
2001-12-11 10:44:04 AM  
Aww, gee honey, we simply have to remember to send the death squad a fruit cake this year.
2001-12-11 10:54:28 AM  
And a necktie as a present, now don't you look fly.
2001-12-11 10:56:19 AM  
Hmm I got one of these, thought it had Anthrax in it...

2001-12-11 10:56:46 AM  
Mmmmm... cocaine. We keep buying it, they'll keep makin' it. Dig death squads? Fight to keep drugs illegal.
2001-12-11 10:58:05 AM  
i wonder if they get a free 8-ball under their trees as a gift?
2001-12-11 11:17:16 AM  
Hey, I didn't get a card! And I put 'em all up for the weekend when they did that road trip to Montreal! Bastards!
2001-12-11 11:42:08 AM  
Anyone else just noticed how close "Columbian Death Squads" and "Columbine Death Squads" are?

Hahahaha! American school kids shooting each other!
2001-12-11 11:55:44 AM  
I'm sure that if d'Abuisan (sp?) and the ARENA Party in El Salvador had thought of this 20 years ago Reagan wouldn't have struggled to make them look nice. Of course, raping nuns is difficult to gloss over, even for Christians...
2001-12-11 12:13:16 PM  
I love the fact how during the Summit of Americas, the hell hole dictatorship that is Columbia was invited - but not comminist Cuba; because, of course, it's so much worse there...
2001-12-11 01:01:26 PM  
Inside card:

"If you are reading this card....There is a price on your head........Feliz Navidad!"
2001-12-11 01:06:05 PM  

I agree heaven forbid our urban streets are filled with sugarcane, baseball, and the Buena Vista Social Club....Yeah cocaine is muuuuch better! We screwed up Cuba that is why they turned communist in the first place!

Colombia has sexy women
2001-12-11 04:42:14 PM  
Brazil has sexier women.
2001-12-11 04:56:03 PM  
Columbian. When you care enough to snort the very best.
2001-12-11 06:35:08 PM  
Robo-Jesus, Kammat: You guys ever been to Colombia? Didn't think so... Know what you're saying before you make useless and ignorant comments like that.
2001-12-11 07:53:56 PM  
USA has the coolest third world countries in our neighborhood.
2001-12-11 11:06:15 PM  
forgot to add 'jive accent'
2001-12-11 11:12:51 PM  
Wondering if the death quad gives these kinds of tasks to their administrative assistants or if they get interns from the local community college for a semester or two.
