Is That a Crocodile Strapped to Your Waist, or Are You Just Happy to See Me?

From CNN, since there was a pause in Anna Nicole Smith news:

A woman was caught with three crocodiles strapped to her waist at the Gaza-Egypt border crossing after guards noticed that she looked "strangely fat," officials said.

The woman's odd shape raised suspicions at the Rafah terminal in southern Gaza, and a body search by a female border guard turned up the animals, each about 50 centimeters (20 inches) long, concealed underneath her loose robe.

Evidently the border guard asked, "I don't mean to be rude, and it's ok that you're fat, but you look strangely fat--what gives?"

And the smuggler, realizing only the right answer would lead to her getting those crocodile leather shoes she's always wanted, replied, "I have a monkey tied to my chest."

And the guard said, "What a crock..." which led the smuggler to break down into, well, you can guess what kind of tears. And all she hoped was to hear the guard say, "See you later, alligator."

"The policewoman screamed and ran out of the room, and then women began screaming and panicking when they heard," a spokesperson said. But when the hysteria died down, she said, "everybody was admiring a woman who is able to tie crocodiles to her body."

Indeed, the smuggler has received several offers of marriage since she was arrested.

That was actually the standard Suicide "Bomber" m.o. before the invention of gunpowder.

Wow. That's great. Thanks for filling us in.

What I'm wondering about is what explains the delay of the mainstream media to cover the purge scandal for so long, and so many other scandals? Do you think somebody just set up newspaper editors to cheat on their wives, and threatened to tell if the editors wouldn’t play ball when they come back some day and ask for something?

It wouldn’t be that hard to do, when you think about it. People wouldn’t talk about it.
