your No. 2 pencils
http://www.NewsAndOpinion.com | Thank you for applying for the INS E-ZVisa!
Please take a moment to fill out the form below and attach a recent photo. It doesn't have to be a photo of you, of course. What are we, the FBI? Just clip a picture from "People." Heck, we have no idea what you look like! Go wild.
In completing the rest of this application, please remember to use a No. 2 pencil and lie. For example, if you claim your reason for applying is "Osama made me," or even, "Intrigued by virgin rebate offer," this could delay your approval.
Then again, it could speed it up.
In any event, all this paperwork is just a formality. If you're well-educated and criminally insane, you're in. It's those hardworking nannies and busboys we like to hassle. Also those whiny political refugees: "I was tortured for criticizing the dictator, boo hoo."
Puh-leez. We are not in the business of charity here. We are in the business of screwing things up big time. So get cracking, and good luck!
