Letterman jokes about jihadist website death threat
« on: August 23, 2011, 09:37:33 AM »
(CNN) -- Never one to miss a joke, even when it involves a threat on his life, David Letterman came armed with punchlines for Monday night's show, the first since a jihadist website urged its American followers to kill the comedian.
....
Just to show that he wasn't taking it too seriously, Letterman continued the theme into his nightly Top 10 list -- the "Top 10 thoughts that went through my mind after hearing about the threat."
 
10. Someone wants to silence me? Get in line.
 
9. Nothing says summer fun like a death threat.
 
8. Why is the staff in such a good mood?
 
7. Save me, Oprah.
 
6. Should I wear my Kevlar hairpiece?
 
5. And here I thought nobody watched the show.
 
4. How can someone be so angry at a time when Kim Kardashian is so happy?
 
3. Some people get Emmy nominations; some people get death threats.
 
2. This seems like (Jay) Leno's handiwork.
 
1. Oh my God! They canceled the George Lopez Show
If you will, you can become all flame.
Extra caritatem nulla salus.
In order to become whole, take the "I" out of "holiness".

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

No, that would be you.

No, that would be you.

My fan mail would suggest otherwise.
