If He can't handle Jon Stewart, how can He defeat terrorists?

Apparently The Daily Show is getting all up in Junior's face with the double-dares to come on the show. This morning in the NYT there was a quarter-page ad in the form of an invitation.

The scanned graphic is awesome and must-see, but I'll also liberate the text from being trapped in a GIF here:

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart cordially invites
George Walker Bush
43rd President of the United States
to be a guest on our basic cable television program

11p.m. Monday-Thursday
The Daily Show Studios (see map below)
Presidential casual
A light meal of fun-sized candy bars
will be served in the green room

I will attend alone       I will attend with my Vice President
I am unaware of your existence

Please send in your response along with a list of pre-approved
questions no later than November 2, 2004

The only thing I would have added would be another checkbox (after Vice President) with the option "I will attend with my Press Secretary". But I quibble.

The Daily Show rules.

You know, if Jon Stewart's not careful, he's going to wind up with a real news show on his hands. And Stephen Colbert is my personal savior.

Did you capitalize 'he' on purpose in the title, V?

I did consider 'His Holiness', but just stuck with the simpler form.
