A target-rich environment

Dave Barry's year in review column is up, and in spite of the fact that the past twelve months have been decidedly un-funny for most of us, it's hilarious. Here's one of my favorite bits:

The big health story in April is the rapid spread of swine flu, a dangerous new virus strain developed by the makers of Purell. Public anxiety over the flu increases when Vice President Joe Biden, demonstrating his gift for emitting statements, declares on the Today show that he would not recommend traveling by commercial airplane or subway. A short while later, White House spokesperson Robert Gibbs assures reporters that he is ``not aware of any `Vice President Joe Biden.' ''
To borrow a couple of popular blog phrases, "Heh" and "Read the whole thing."
