From the Hey, That Sounds Familiar Dept.

You know we armed Iraq. I wondered about that too, you know, during the Persian Gulf war those intelligence reports would come out: "Iraq: incredible weapons, incredible weapons." How do you know that? "Uh, well... We looked at the receipt." --Bill Hicks, Revelations, 1993

You know why we know [Saddam's] got weapons of mass destruction? 'Cause we kept the receipts!

--Ted Rall, Real Time with Bill Maher, 03/07/2003

Too bad Hicks has been dead for 10 years, Ted. You could have sued him for retroactively stealing your joke. And for actually being funny while he told it.
