Alternative ways in which Scooter Libby will be punished for his crimes

--Only a low-end gift basket from Harry & David
--A Cookie Puss, slightly melted
--$25 gift certificate from Target

(It occurs to me that the Cookie Puss reference might need an explanation to those outside the NY metro area. Or, at least, those unfamilar with the Beastie Boys.)

Is Cookie Puss a step up or down the evolutionary ladder from Fudgie the Whale?

Given that Cookie Puss comes from another planet, I must assume he's more highly evolved. (And yes, I welcome our new Cookie Puss overlords.)

You left out:

- Get a Presidential Medal of Freedom just like that 'slam dunk' guy

- Have President Bush go on the national news and tell you "You're doing a heck of a job, Scooter!"

- Get invited on a hunting trip with Cheney

I just found some great clips of Carvel commercials with Cookie Puss over on YouTube. They had them for every occasion - a "Cupie Puss" for Valentine's Day...an "O'Cookie Puss for St. Patrick's Day...
