Bagging a Lawyer - Cheney

A white house source stated that Congress is considering awarding Vice-President Dick Cheney the Medal of Freedom, the national highest civilian commendation, for his act of bravery in shooting an attorney.

The source was quoted to say " All Americans have wanted to shoot a  lawyer at one time or another and Cheney actually had the balls to do it".

In a related story, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, which  issues hunting licenses, said that it will start requiring hunters, wishing to bag a lawyer, to have the new "lawyer's stamp" on their hunting license.

Currently Texas hunters are required to carry stamps for hunting  birds, deer, and bear, at a cost of $7 annually. The new "lawyers  stamp" will  cost $100, but open season will be all year long.

The department further stated that although the "lawyers stamp"  comes at hefty price, sales have been brisk and it is believed it  will generate annual revenues in excess of $3 billion dollars the  first year. Other states are considering similar hunting license  stamps.
