YGTLTO: Vice Presidential Handlers Lure Cheney into Traveling Crate

Simply Genius. I'll let The Onion speak for itself:

WASHINGTON—A team of nine specially trained handlers have successfully lured outgoing vice president Dick Cheney into a reinforced steel traveling crate in order to transport him back to his permanent enclosure in Casper, WY, official sources reported Monday. "He's a smart one. Once he sees the crate, he gets pretty nippy, but we've learned a few tricks over the years," chief VP wrangler Ted Irving breathlessly said while applying pressure to a deep gash on his forearm. "If we break a rabbit's legs and throw it in there, he will eventually go in to finish it off. Doesn't work with dead rabbits, though. Cheney only eats what he kills." Irving said that the latest vice presidential relocation went much more smoothly than September's diplomatic trip to Georgia, which was delayed for several hours after Cheney mauled three secret service agents and escaped inside the White House walls.

Enjoy the truth stated in creative ways,

The man made Tricky Dick (Nixon) look like a saint. I feel better that he's "contained".

Kerry, welcome to the site. I always wonder how you far flung and interesting people find this place, but glad you're here.

And, I agree.
