Borowitz Report 

by ANDY BOROWITZ & r & & r & McCAIN'S TOP 10 WAYS TO KILL IRANIANS & r & & r & & lt;span class= "dropcap " & C & lt;/span & iting what he called the "overwhelmingly positive response to my jokes about killing Iranians," presumptive G.O.P. presidential nominee John McCain issued today a list of his favorite humorous remarks on the subject.

Titled "John McCain's Top 10 Funniest Ways to Kill Iranians," the list was published on his official campaign Website at

Speaking in a video on the site, a smiling Sen. McCain says, "My friends, in these trying times in which we live, there's one thing all Americans can agree on: Killing Iranians is hilarious."

Sen. McCain, who first joked about killing Iranians months ago by singing "Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran" to the tune of the Beach Boys' hit "Barbara Ann" and who recently commented that the U.S. could kill Iranians with cigarettes, was apparently "just warming up," one aide said today.

"Anyone who has enjoyed Sen. McCain's side-splitting jokes about killing Iranians will be blown away by this list," the aide said. "He's in fine form."

Sen. McCain's list of funny ways to kill Iranians ranges from the caustic -- "Send Iran lead-based hookah pipes from China" -- to the whimsical -- "Tell Christie Brinkley that Iran has been cheating on her."

The list ends with what Sen. McCain dubs the No. 1 funniest way to kill Iranians: "Vote for me."

Elsewhere, after Pope Benedict XVI prayed for peace last Sunday, Vice President Dick Cheney requested equal time for war.

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
