If you put enough people on it, or image the pieces and have a computer work on it, reconstruction can be done.

Who knew there were journalists anywhere working at 7 AM on a Saturday morning?

But we probably should have surmised that they’d be using federal resources to do so.

Where there’s smoke there’s someone gonna get fired.

But just because it burns doesn't mean you're gonna die. You gotta get up and lie and lie and lie.

In another example of lying from the White House, the source of the smoke was determined to be not a closet but the press room.

What it really was:

1. Choom gang reunion
2. Moocher’s thighs caught on fire (friction)
3. A good ol memory hole fire
4. Carney’s pants finally went up
5. WH burning effigies of media logos and top republicans
6. WH shredder jammed and caught fire
7. The little sterno tins keeping Moocher’s lobster trays warm had an accident
8. Papa Satan paid a visit to his favorite son
