Well, yes, but don't forget they've got the resources of the tri-lateral commission to back them up. Since they're finances come primarily from their monolopies on fuel and food, the prices of which are skyrocketing, they're really sitting pretty good. Those women don't have a chance.

Not to mention those Swiss gnomes sitting on those gold reserves...

I read in Business Week that of all the imports from China into the US, Wal-mart is responsible for 10% of them.

That's a heck of a lot of Chinese product being sold by one chain of stores!

You see, Rich, it's all part of the conspiracy. Our BBB crack investigative team(as evidenced in previous posts on this thread) has uncovered the following major conspirators:

Wal-Mart (founded by Sam Wah Ton - uncovered by agent Shapley)
Chinese food and shoes
Waffle Hut
Bill Clinton
The French(aka the "Freedoms")
Evil Nazi scientists
Black Helicopters
General Tso
Doonesbury
The US Postal Service
NPR
The Gnomes of Zurich

Strange bedfellows indeed.

Involved, hell! I hear there's a couple of chorus members who are particularly tight with each other and a mackaw who, on a recent trip to Europe, kidnapped the walzing cowboy and threatened him with eternal Lula deprivation if he didn't immediately contact his Chinese agents and get that shipment of plastic "Be American, Buy American" plaques delivered to the Tenorian Embassy immediately.

Ooops, wrong thread. :o

Wal-Mart MIB #1"We got anyone who sings well enough to infiltrate the San Diego Opera?"

Wal-Mart MIB #2"(SNORT!) Well enough? How hard does that have to be if he can make it?"

Wal-Mart MIB #1"Good point, call special agent Orc Tenornot back from his current assignment"

Wal-Mart MIB #2"Where is he?”

Wal-Mart MIB #1"He’s been working at the new "Super Solar" Wal-mart store on the dark side of the Moon, apparently a gang of those damn four armed shoplifting Barsoomians are giving the store detectives fits!!”

Sheesh! How far will the denizens of this board go to resurrect old hijacks? Should this be a competition?

Agent Piq Aboud reporting -
careful and extensive research indicates that one must sing loudly to infiltrate the SDO. If the esteemed MIB cant hear Ort from here, over the sound of rushing water, he probably cant do the job. Perhaps Bottom....?
Altoid - curiously strong.

Things to do at Wal-Mart while the significant other is taking his/her sweet time:

1. Put items in people's carts when they don't realize it.
2. Set the alarm clocks to go off at thirty minute intervals throughout the day.
3. Look right into the security camera and use it as a mirror while you pick your nose.

I'm feeling rather conspiratorial today, so I thought we ought to resurrect this oldie but moldy. In order to bring you pups up to speed, this is the conspiracy as we've uncovered it so far:

Wal-Mart (founded by Sam Wah Ton - uncovered by agent Shapley)
Chinese food and shoes
Waffle Hut
Bill Clinton
The French(aka the "Freedoms")
Evil Nazi scientists
Black Helicopters
General Tso
Doonesbury
The US Postal Service
NPR
The Gnomes of Zurich

Back-reading is required to ascertain how we derived this list from the intelligence gathered.

Any new information will be treated circumspectly....


...whatever that means...

Darn, busted already! ;)

Hi TM,

I've always gotten a chuckle out of this thread, so it doesn't take much for me to reach back and yank it out in the open.

Stay tuned. I predict Shapley will bump "And now, for something completely different..." any moment now...

Great new profile photo! However, please keep the FRS handy. I may need to borrow it from you. Soon.
