Why Can't He Go Lawyer Hunting Instead... Like Cheney Did?

Sometimes if you look at something just right, the story will write itself. It is at those moments that a good writer will just step back and allow the reader to discover it and experience the same joy that you, as the writer, did upon finding it. Sometimes even a writer like me stumbles upon the same thing. Today there is just such a story in the news. I think the first sentence of the first paragraph says it all. Enjoy.

From the Washington Post's site:
The first thing Karl Rove plans to do when he leaves the White House at the end of this month is go dove hunting in West Texas, The Sleuth has learned.

The symbolism is priceless. The irony is pretty ironic. The bold was added by me to assist in the storytelling. Thank you and good night.

Wow, irony abounds. You know what would be even more ironic? Symbolic? Poetic Justice? Dick Cheney should round up the whole bunch, load his shotgun, and take them hunting. It wouldn't even matter that they aren't all lawyers.:-)

I was so tempted to drive this into the ground, but I thought a "choose your own adventure" approach would work better. The jokes overwhelming my mind are almost unbearable.

I agree with Serena, let Cheney loose with a shotgun.

The light touch was best here.

Hmmm...I wonder if the italics means something. =P

There ya go. Give us a push in the right direction and let our imaginations produce all the imagery needed to either make this hillarious or tragic.

Me agrees with Camille, it was the way to go.

Notice there be no italics in me comment. Could be that it does mean something.

STOMP.

Nope. Just my overuse of spoken emphasis clumsily rendered in script.

It's sort of like an adult version of those whack-a-mole games. The shoot-a-lawyer version.
