The CEO scandals have inspired some jokes too.

Now there is hope for peace with Iraq thanks to all the common ground between our two countries: we both violate UN resolutions, we both screw over the Kurds, and neither has an elected president.

Why won't Bush and Cheney order pizza from Domino's? They think they're Little Caesars.

This is expected to be a unique Inauguration Day. It will be the first time the speaking platform held two lame duck presidents.

What's the difference between the New York Senate race and the World Series? In the World Series, both sides are from New York.

Plans have been made just in case Bush dies unexpectedly. Cheney becomes president, Congressional leaders will be summoned to the White House, and the nation will observe seven minutes of silence.

The CEO scandals have inspired some jokes too.
