Subject: Is this from Letterman?

Written By: K1chyd on 11/01/04 at 1:35 pm

I got this Top 10 list in my mail today, is it from Letterman? Just curious!


TOP 10 REASONS WHY USAMA BIN LADEN DIDN´T ATTACK SWEDEN:


10. Couldn't tell Sweden from Switzerland.

9. Attackers decided to take extended sick leave at 80% pay instead.

8. Stockholm World Trade Center is only seven stories high, and they couldn't find it.

7. Osama's illness turns out to have been Stockholm Syndrome.

6. Has been reading a lot of Little Green Footballs, thinks Sweden is a Wahhabist theocracy.
(I don´t get this one)

5. WMD attack did occur, but Swedes are immune to surströmming bombs. (Saur Baltic Herring).

4. Because everybody knows Sweden has no army.

3. Will never forget the summer of 1982 in Afghanistan and those long warm nights with Lotta Hedman, that hot Swedish backpacker — especially how she would unravel her blond pigtails as they bathed naked in the Amu Darya while the full moon illuminated the Hindu Kush. He still wakes up in a sweat thinking of her. Sometimes he wonders what has become of her.

2. IKEA furniture easy to transport from cave to cave. Especially likes his Lagomâ„¢ brown tarpaulin backdrop and Slarvigâ„¢ collapsible desk.

1. Still holding out hope for a Nobel.

the fact that the list includes this nutbag in there, probably shows it isn't Letterman.  Plus, he keeps an up to date list on his official website of all the Letterman top tens

though, the fact that it's not funny might be a dead Letterman giveaway

I was thinking that too, Billy, until I read #3 and #2 which were dead funny

I thought the whole list was pretty funny but I´m a loco... local soo... Many of us Swedes are still embarrased over Arafat actually getting the peace price once so #1 not so far off as you might think. Luckily we can blame that one on the Norweigians cos they have the right to decide about that prize since Alfred Nobel, unlike Usama, didn´t trust the Swedes to have a sound judgement in foreign policy affairs! Oh, the irony! :-)

Chucky: Thanks for the explanation.
