fairy tales can come true, they can happen to you...

Meryl reports that Charles reports that someone else reports that Arafat may be dead.

I had a thought late last night, after I ran out of sheep to count. Arafat is dead. He's been dead. The Pallies are just playing a whole Weekend At Bernie's prank on us. They prop up Arafat's preserved body, stick him at a table next to his beloved box of baby wipes (which are scented, to keep the stench of death at bay) and Andrew McCarthy hides underneath those robes and waves the limbs of the corpse around.

Well, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's true. Dancing on the grave of the near-dead if not already dead? You bet.


Listed below are links to weblogs that reference fairy tales can come true, they can happen to you...:

Michele, lets go with the Den Beste rule of news, wait 48 hours for further confirmation. My miserable life would be just a big brighter if Arafat bought the farm. But lets not celebrate, yet.

...drat, now I've got the "Bring out your dead" sketch from Monty Python and the Holy Grail running through my head.

Here's the translation of the relevant news from the Guysen IsraŽl News web site:

(The disclaimer for all reports)
We chose to inform you very quickly, want to thus excuse syntax as well as the orthography of our dispatches. Indeed, we transmit them to you at the time of the urgencies, directly coming from our reporters themselves under extreme tension. Thank you for your understanding.

October 8, 2003
20:19 Arafat according to our advisors would be deceased following a cardiac faintness. News to take with the conditionel a hoax or an attempt at misinformation are not to exclude.

20:36 We do not have any more information on the state of "health '' of Arafat. The news of its death is still not confirmed.

Sadly, it turned out to be nothing but rumors. The old ghoul is still with us.

Which reminds me of an old joke:

Arafat goes to a fortune teller and asks her "Can you tell me when I will die?"

The fortune teller gazes into her crystal ball and says to him "I can see that you will die on a Jewish holiday."

"But which Jewish holiday?" Arafat asks.

The fortune teller looks at him and says "Any day you die will be a Jewish holiday."

Makes sense, Michele. I mean, has anybody seen Andrew McCarthy lately?
