As for Iraq + Iran = Irate, it reminds me of the plan to combine Dallas and Fort Worth into a single urban entity; what would they call it? "Worthless!" [duck]
I like that one, although spelling it Worthlas would be an even better audio-visual pun. I'll have to remember that one the next time I have to take a Texan down a notch or two.
Actually I had it that way originally and it didn't look quite as ..hm... effective. It does go better as a spoken joke. Proudly stolen from the Asylum Street Spankers (from Austin).
Another Texan told me how in 1960 when Alaska was becoming a state and Texans were moaning about no longer being the biggest, Alaskans just said, "you boys just pipe down or we'll cut Alaska in two and make you the third largest state". But we digress...
