My favorite Halliburton quotes of the week

Posted by Craig Westover | 11:33 AM |  

In order for satire to work, it has to have a grain of truth in it. Great satire is produced when that grain of truth is such that one is not sure just whom is being made fun of -- the subject of the satire or the people nodding their heads in agreement.

First, from the Borowitz Report --
Recovering from aneurysm surgery on his knees, Vice President Dick Cheney said that repair work on his knees would be done by the Halliburton Company at a cost of 12.8 billion dollars.
Headline from the print version of the Onion --
Halliburton Gets Contract to Pry Gold Fillings From New Orleans Corpses’ Teeth
Who is laughing at whom?
