Happy 60th, U.N.

A precision guided humour assignment
This is the 60th anniversary of the founding of that noted centre for graft and corruption... er, for world peace and harmony... the United Nations.
What can we, the people of the world, do to commemorate this sad day... er, glorious occasion?
We can shoot off 60 rockets... right into the building (not being homicidal, make sure it's evacuated first). Then build the U.N. a new home... atop a landfill (er, burial ground) in western Iraq. Or Paris. Or Chernobyl. Not New Orleans, though. The Crescent City deserves better.
We can offer Kofi Annan, the U.N. secretary general and general all-around crook... er, statesman... a free 60-year stay in the finest maximum security prison in the U.S. of A. If Marion was good enough for Pete Rose and John Gotti, it's good enough for ol' Kofi, for sure.
But the best present we here in the U.S. of A. can give the U.N. is nothing. Not a dollar. The place would certainly collapse.
