First Ve Build Moat, Ya? Then Ve Bring In Desert Crocodiles, Ya?

Posted By on Thu, Mar 13, 2008 at 1:46 AM

Hey Michael Chertoff, folks in Yuma got themselves a nifty little plan to curb the immigration migration frustration. They've decided a moat is the best way to go, kinda like them castle days with knights and stuff. The plan is to take the 23-mile stretch of the Colorado River near Yuma and bring back water to this part of the river that's dry.

I wonder if these guys know what's going on with water and all, and why that stretch of the Colorado is dry to begin with. Do you think they forgot about the Rio Grande, and that crossing rivers or moats, or whatever you want to call it, has been happening for a long, long time? And maybe, just maybe, a few people crossing this new moat will either know how to swim or come prepared with inflatable kayaks.

That's where crocs could come in handy.
