After numerous rounds of "We don't even know if Saddam is still alive," Saddam decided to send George W. a letter in his own writing to let him know that he is still in the game.
Dubya opened the letter and saw a coded message: "370HSSV-0773H". He couldn't figure it out, so he asked Karl Rove. Rove suggested that the head of the CIA would certainly understand code, so Dubya sent it to George Tenet.
Tenet however, couldn't figure it out either. He suggested, "How about Condi? She has a doctorate. That means she's smart." But Dr. Rice was baffled, too.
As Dubya was pondering the mysterious message, which lay on the desk before him, Colin Powell came into the Oval Office. When he saw the paper and read what was written on it, he asked, "Sir, where did that come from?"
Bush replied testily, "It's supposedly a message from Saddam. But what the hell does '370HSSV-0773H' mean?" Powell cleared his throat and replied, "Mr. President, I think you've been looking at the message upside down."

Type 07734 into a calculator and look at it upside down. Then you'll get the rest (I didn't think it was funny though).
Oh come on... its funny ... well, at least to some of us!! I am 100% behind our troops and this country, just not our administration. Don't get me wrong, Saddam and his boys needed ousting... but not by duping us. Bin Laden was No. 1 on hit list... no ties to him in Iraq... hmmm... so yea, its funny.
