Here is my joke of the week, courtesy of Ms. Claire Sussums (thanks Claire!):

Three Texas surgeons were arguing as to which had the greatest skill.

The first began: “Three years ago, I re-attached seven fingers on a pianist. He went on to give a recital for the Queen of England.”.

The second replied: “That’s nothing. I attended to a man in a car accident. All his arms and legs were severed from his body. Two years after I reattached them, he won three gold medals for field events in the Olympics.”.

The third said: “A few years back, I attended to a cowboy. He was high on cocaine and alcohol when he rode his horse head-on into a Santa Fe freight train traveling at 100 miles per hour. All I had to work with was the horse’s ass and a ten gallon hat. A couple of years ago, he became President of the United States.”

For an entirely more serious (and MUCH less amusing) analysis of the current global crisis, read the excellent article by Nation contributor Jonathan Schell, The Case Against War.
