TOGETHER.

ANYONE SEEN SADDAM LATELY?

OH, RIGHT, RIGHT, RIGHT...

THE SPIDER HOLE AND THE BEARDAND THE --

(POP NOISE)WELL, LIVE AND LEARN.

THAT'S ONE ON US.

POINT IS, SYRIA IS A COUNTRYWE'VE NEVER BOMBED BEFORE --

WHICH MEANS I GET TO PUT A NEWHOLE IN MY MIDEAST FREQUENT

BOMBING CARD!

(PUNCH CARD)WE'VE ALREADY BOMBED

AFGHANISTAN, IRAQ, PAKISTAN,YEMEN, SOMALIA AND LIBYA.

NOW SYRIA.

(PUNCH)ALL WE NEED TO DO IS BOMB OMAN,

AND I GET A FREE FALAFEL!

OF COURSE, AS MUCH AS I LOVETURNING A NEW CORNER OF THE

DESERT INTO THE BOOM BOOM ROOM,THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT THIS

STORY THAT MAKES ME WONDER IF WERUSHED INTO BATTLE TOO FAST,

BECAUSE LET'S FACE IT -- THENETWORK GRAPHICS PACKAGES

WERE JUST NOT READY.

COME ON!

WE'RE DROPPING BOMBS ON SYRIAAND THE "TODAY SHOW" IS USING

THE SAME LOWER-THIRD GRAPHICTHEY USED TO REPORT THAT 50 CENT

CAN'T THROW A BASEBALL?!

AMERICA IS AT WAR, IT IS THESWORN DUTY OF THE NEWS BIZ TO

CALL ON THE BEST AND THEBRIGHTEST IN OUR GRAPHICS

DEPARTMENTS TO SERVE THEIRNATION.

JIMMY, LET'S LOCK AND LOAD!

IT'S NOT JUST AMERICA AND THEARABS DROPPING THE BOMBS.

OUR CLOSEST ALLY, FRANCE, ISBATTLING I.S.I.S. WITH SOMETHING

MORE POWERFUL, NAME CALLING.

THEY'VE DITCHED I.S.I.S.,I.S.I.L. AND THE ISLAMIC STATE

AND ARE NOW CALLING THE GROUPDAISH.

AS IN, "THESE GUYS ARE A BUNCHOF DAISH-BAGS".

THE NAME DAISH COMES FROM THEARAB

ACRONYM FOR "ISLAMIC STATE OFIRAQ AND THE LEVANT," AL-DAWLA

AL-ISLAMIYA FI AL-IRAQ WAAL-SHAM

WHICH JUST PROVES THE OLD SAYING"STICKS AND STONES MAY BREAK MY

BONES, BUT I CAN'T PRONOUNCETHAT NAME."

AND FRANCE IS CALLING THEM"DAISH" BECAUSE "THE GROUP IS

REPORTED TO HATE THE MONIKER."

SO MUCH THAT "THEY WERETHREATENING TO CUT OUT THE

TONGUES OF ANYONE WHO USED THEPHRASE PUBLICLY."

OOOOH!

SEE ME SHAKE, DAISH?

AMERICAN BEER, PABST BLUERIBBON.

(APPLAUSE)SO NAMED BECAUSE IT WAS JUDGED

AMERICA'S BEST AS RECENTLY ASTHE CHICAGO WORLD'S FAIR OF

1893.

(LAUGHTER)EVERYONE KNOWS THEY JUST CATCH

WHAT THEY CAN SQUEEGEE FROM THESIDE OF A BUDWEISER CLYDESDALE.

(LAUGHTER)WORSE, THE RUSSIANS AREN'T

GETTING ONLY PABST.

THE SALE INCLUDES OLD MILWAUKEE,SCHLITZ AND COLT 45.

THAT'S RIGHT.

"ALL" THE BEER LEFT IN YOURFRIDGE AFTER A PARTY IN 1975.

REALLY HURTS.

BECAUSE IT'S NOT JUST THECLASSIC AMERICAN BEER ENJOYED BY

YOUR GRANDFATHER.

THANKS TO THE HIPSTER REVIVAL,IT'S THE CLASSIC AMERICAN BEER

ENJOYED BY YOUNG PEOPLE TRYINGTO LOOK LIKE YOUR GRANDFATHER.
