My money is on the O-man. The world is hot on his trail. Noone really cares what the hell happened to the former Teamsters boss, do they?

Re: Who Will Be Found First: Hoffa or Bin Laden?

I saw this, that congress is spending time declaring our 'national language', and the same day that the california legislature declared zinfandel the state wine.

I was pleasantly surprised by this, as it must mean that we found bin laden, defeated terrorism, solved the social security, medicare and health care issues, resolved illegal immigration to everyones satisfaction, eliminated excessive taxation, and all corruption and crime was solved.

:P : :P :

They will find Barbara Boxer's real gender before either of those two are found.

our department of agriculture has no problem finding that one cow anywhere in the country with mad cow disease...millions of cows that all look alike and they find it....

Hoffa will be found first. Know how I know? We're actually looking for Hoffa. The hunt for Osama got interrupted by something two countries away.

And then demand a special prosecutor to find out which "traitors" in the gummint are giving "secrets" to the "enemy" (fka the free press).

For those in the Know...

Hoffa is Bin Laden !

Think about it, Hoffa disapears then there is a lull, then Bin Laden takes the world stage.

The truth is out there

To make it more sporting, they have to leak Bin Laden's wives' names first (bada bing) But seriously folks, who was Bush interested in longer--Paul O'Neil, John Snow, or Osama Bin Laden? (bada boom)

Mythbusters brought in some imaging equipment and looked in the areas he's supposed to be buried in and found no objects. They also found that concrete absorbs the smell of decomposition taking place below it and tried some dogs to sniff it out. No luck there either.

We're not going to find either. Jimmy's probably been reduced to Taco Maker Meat and bin laden will die of natural causes and get buried in a cave complex somewhere.

Hell, I can think of lots of ways to quietly dispose of a body. If nothing else, my family has a lot of hungry dogs that will eat just about anything...

Oh yea, I guess they found his bones and cash...never mind.

no, actually if you remove Tammy Faye Baker's makeup, you will find Jimmy Hoffa. It was one of those successful witness relocation deals.
