Bureaucracy Is Everywhere

I've sometimes regretted that I did not become a comedy writer. Just think what I could do with the story in today's NYT that Jose Padilla had filled out an application to become a member of Al Qaeda. What information was requested?
  • Are you willing to become a martyr?

  • Do you have experience in small arms?

  • Do you know how to fly a jet airliner?

  • Any known allergies?

Are you sure this wasn't an application to work for Dr. Evil from an Austin Powers script?
