I find that some of the best information I've been given comes from abroad or from imigrants. My Aunt came to the U.S. from England near the end of WWII, and is as much (if not more) of an American patriot than almost anyone I know (Brooks Corley, Rolly Babcock, and Gerry Moore excluded). She sent this small piece of humor that I share. I hope you enjoy it.
After getting nailed by a Daisy Cutter bomb blast at Tora Bora, Osama makes his way to the pearly gates.
There, he is greeted by George Washington. "How dare you attack the nation I helped conceive!" yells Washington, slapping Osama in the face.
Patrick Henry comes up from behind. "You wanted to end the Americans' liberty, so they gave you death!" Henry punches Osama in the nose.
James Madison comes up next and says, "This is why I allowed the Federal government to provide for the common defense!" He drops a large weight on Osama's knee.
Osama is subject to similar beatings from John Randolph of Roanoke, James Monroe, and sixty-five other people who have the same love for liberty and America.
As he writhes on the ground, Thomas Jefferson picks him up to hurl him back toward the gate where he is to be judged.
As Osama awaits his journey to his final very hot destination, he screams, "This is not what I was promised!"
An angel replies, "I told you there would be seventy-two Virginians waiting for you. What did you think I said?"
