Gallows humour is the best.
Wrote the Newhouse column – a letter from Zarkawi’s replacement. (“Making a whistling sound with a descending pitch in my presence was funny the first time. We all had a good laugh. It is hereby forbidden.”)Too bad we're the ones making the funny. I'm sure the guys must get together and have a quiet yuk or two. But does it leak over into their media? Nope. Damned humorless zealots.
