Quote of the Week #2



"Jon, it's the end of an era tonight here (at Abu Ghraib). The testicle electrodes dangle quietly... the triangular hoods rustle in the wind on forlorn pegs... Where once the hallways echoed with the sounds of naked men screeaming while stacked atop each other like cordwood there is silence...

This prison was the heart and soul of the local economy. It employed hundreds of craftsmen. Blindfold makers, jumper cable splicers, clamp sharpeners, anal pear growers... You take a guy who spent his entire adult life sweeping human teeth off the floor where's he supposed to work now? Starbucks?"

-- Ed Helms, The Daily Show
