The return of humor, always a good sign

I remember distinctly the relief and gratitude I felt when the Onion had the nerve to declare 9/11 open for non-reverence with the headline "Holy F*%cking Sh$t!" and so forth. Humor programs have largely skirted New Orleans for the first week+ (although I appreciated somebody's passing along the anecdote of a refugee noting that she "didn't want to die in this" off-color souvenir t-shirt) but I think we can all use the relief.

Anyway, all of that blather by way of introduction to this very short yet pointed topical joke:
Q: What's George Bush's position on Roe v. Wade?
A: He really doesn't care how people get out of New Orleans.
(via boing boing)
