Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.

Umaru Yar'Adua

He is the President of Nigeria's fourth republic. Really, the fourth? The first was established in 1963.

I am getting a lot more Nigerian e-mail spam in my Yahoo folder. This means two things... Yahoo's spam screen is not perfect, and Nigerians haven't quite figured out that the well of foolish Americans is getting ever smaller, and more e-mails won't help.

Any ways, have any of you seen the "Dead Parrot" sketch by Monty Python acted out by Nigerian spammers? It's hilarious. See, the spammers were hoodwinked. A would-be victim convinced them to act it out, and post it on Youtube, for the stated purpose of proving they were who they said they were.

Seriously, you should check it out.
