Katie Couric, Charlie Gibson, Brian Williams and a tough old U.S. Marine
Sergeant were captured by terrorists in Iraq . The leader of the Iraqi
terrorists told them he'd grant each of them one last request before they
were beheaded and dragged naked through the streets.
Katie Couric said, ''Well, I'm a Southerner, so I'd like one last plate

the Marine was untying Couric, Gibson and Williams, they asked him, ''Why

kick you in the ass?''
''What!?!'' replied the Marine, ''and have you three assholes report that
