Secret Service investigates GIANT LIZARDS as 'potential threat' to Obama on Thailand visit
Daily Mail ^ | 11/17/12

Posted on 11/17/2012 3:20:31 PM PST by BunnySlippers

They are supposed to be prepared to handle most anything, yet a harmless lizard managed to scare the daylights out of U.S. Secret Service agents preparing a residence for President Obama's trip to Thailand.

Thai officials, however, reassured the U.S. Secret Service that the massive lizards found on the Government House grounds were not the dangerous Komodo dragons, but the harmless, lazy water lizards.

It's straight from Douglas Adams:
“I come in peace,” it said, ... “take me to your Lizard.”

Ford Prefect, of course, had an explanation for this, as he sat with Arthur and watched the nonstop frenetic news reports on television, none of which had anything to say ...

“It comes from a very ancient democracy, you see...”

“You mean, it comes from a world of lizards?”

“No,” said Ford, who by this time was a little more rational and coherent than he had been, having finally had the coffee forced down him, “nothing so simple. Nothing anything like so straightforward. On its world, the people are people. The leaders are lizards. The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people.”

“Odd,” said Arthur, “I thought you said it was a democracy.”

“I did,” said Ford. “It is.”

“So,” said Arthur, hoping he wasn’t sounding ridiculously obtuse, “why don’t the people get rid of the lizards?”

“It honestly doesn’t occur to them,” said Ford. “They’ve all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they’ve voted in more or less approximates to the government they want.”

“You mean they actually vote for the lizards?”

“Oh yes,” said Ford with a shrug, “of course.”

“But,” said Arthur, going for the big one again, “why?”

“Because if they didn’t vote for a lizard,” said Ford, “the wrong lizard might get in. Got any gin?”

The Secret Service is afraid they'll bring back the wrong lizard...

Kind of like Democrats vs. Republicans.

There was a day when a thread so titled would bring dozens of Helen Thomas pictures.

However, the march of web and FR evolution has led to modern FR, where such appropriate circumstances evoke mere verbal references to such.

I can understand the SS concern. Lizards eat medium rodents, and carrion, so our Usurper would be in definate hazard. Getting turned into Siamese lizard dropping would be a step up. tho...

I would guess that Hillary passed out “Notes from Obama”....because he knows sh** about these countries.....and could care less. Hence...he will arrive with his “I Won” shirt and a monitor....to the applause of the millions of minions of those countries.
