Mysterious Duo Claims Credit For Thwarting Recent Attacks
Referring to themselves as Ketchup Man and Ketchup Boy, the two men claimed it was their efforts that tipped off authorities in the UK, Pakistan and the U.S. to the budding terrorist plot.
"I had a plan," said Ketchup Man to a room full of anxious reporters and press. "I can't tell you the details of my plan, it's a Super-Duper Top Secret Plan. And I'm proud to say that my plan worked. My plan was to catch these bad guys and we did just that."
"You tell 'em, Ketchup Man," said Ketchup Boy.
Ketchup Man and Ketchup Boy; Are They Actually John Kerry and John Edwards?
"Easy there, Ketchup Boy. We don't want to gloat."
"Sorry, Ketchup Man."
Reporters shouted, "Who are you?"
"It's best for everyone if our identities remain unknown," said Ketchup Man.
One reporter shouted, "You sound just like John Kerry and John Edwards."
"We, ah...we, ah.... WHO? No, we're not those people," replied Ketchup Man, in an obvious and ineffective attempt to deny the accusation.
"We're not familiar with those names," added Ketchup Boy.
"Ketchup Boy is right! We must go now," said Ketchup Man as he and Ketchup Boy left the room and building. The phrase, "To The Ketchup Cave," was heard as they left for places unknown.
"Who were those masked men," is what reporters muttered to themselves. A brave reporter ventured an answer, "Isn't it obvious it's John Kerry and John Edwards?"
"Oooooooooooh.......," was the collective reply.
If Ketchup Man decides to reappear with election aspirations I have no doubt that he and his Ketchup Boy du Jour will find a way to link themselves to a positve anti-terrorist act. There won't be any concrete evidence that supports their link but that won't stop them from declaring how wonderfully effective they were at stopping terrorism.
I agree with your analysis of KM and KB. I'm certain KM will run in '08. I think KB may, but I don't think he's as passionate about it as KM!
