Never Heard of Him

Bound and Gaggled: Misty Memories of Past Priorities - Wonkette

From today's press briefing, via Wonkette:
Q: Second question: The President's speech today at the Pentagon as far as terrorism and fighting terrorism is concerned, do you think that Osama bin Laden is still in -- is running the al Qaeda business?

MR. McCLELLAN: I'm sorry, who?
I hope he was joking.

This actually reminds me of a joke that I will one day play on someone. After being approached on the street one day by two young men on a mission (of the Mormon kind, I think) and being asked, "Have you heard the good news about Jesus?" we realized that the perfect response--guaranteed to cause a combined gasp of horror and twinkle in the eye as they think, for a split second, they've found fresh meat--is simply this: "Who?"

Reminds me of a time when I was walking downtown with a friend and an old lady stopped us and said
"Jesus told me to tell you he loves you"
My friend without batting an eye, said
"Not with dinner and drinks first he doesn't!"
I hear the coronary was minor and she was out in a couple days.
