|WASHINGTON (IWR Satire) - Vice
President Dick Cheney today challenged presidential hopeful Wesley
Clark to a 'Croquet Death Match' to be held on the White House lawn
White House sources said that earlier in the day, Mr.
Cheney had been celebrating with a few of his old college buddies from
the University of Wyoming.
It seems Cheney and his friends had drank a few pictures of
tequila, and then visited a local tattoo parlor before the Vice
President made the following comments:

Now what was I saying?
Anyway, tell that so-called general that he ain't got a hair on his
ass unless he show's up here Saturday to my Croquet Death Match," said
Mr. Cheney, as he was whisked away by Mrs. Cheney who smacked him
several times with her Versace mink purse.
