Stolen Gag # 11,261

Following on from last week's 9/11 show, this week's Conspiracy Files on BBC 2 will deal with the lonely suicide of British weapons expert, Dr. David Kelly.

Apparently, some people contend that Dr. Kelly was in fact murdered, presumably to prevent him sabotaging Britain's plans to participate in the invasion of Iraq.

Britain already had an inquest into this incident, however, and Lord Hutton pronounced that he was "satisfied" that Dr. Kelly had taken his own life.

Actually, now that I come to think of it, I don't think Lord Hutton needed to be so smug about it. Surely gloating is undignified for such an elevated personage.

P.S. On an unrelated note, kudos to anyone who finds a more amusing headline this weekend than "Balls Used To Plug Java Mudflow".

Now that, friends, is what I call manliness.
