VP Dick Cheney has made the smirk an important part of US politics in the last 6 years. In fact presidential aspirants, Clinton, Osama, McCain and McCrone are said to be seeking VP running mates who can smirk real good!
The recent issue of National Geographics seems to establish that the "Cheney Smirk" may have been a part of the human heritage back to Neanderthal.
"We found this skull in the Alps near Chenidorf with an incredibly reminiscent smirk",Harvard Skull Hunter Dr Crain Yium reported,"The high hairline,the snarled lip,the bared teeth -I thought I'd come across the VP himself!Except I thought I remembered that despite his gazillion heart attacks he was reported to still be somewhat alive!".
Around the area of the skull an unusual number of skeletons with punctured skulls were found.One archaeologist said that the site was a kind of shock and awe for prehistoric times."The smirking skull seemed to be enjoying the pain of the surrounding victims",remarked Dr Yium,"all I thought was this must have been one sick Neanderthal fuck.I only hope he didn't pass on those genes!".
