The FBI and the ATF jointly raided three veterinary clinics in southern
California this morning, based on intercepted e-mails between the
clinics. Apparently, according to sources who wish to remain anonymous,
(and whose sides remain in guarded condition from hysterical laughter)
the three clinics exchanged a number of e-mails concerning a recent
outbreak of Bubonocele, a rupture of the muscle wall of the groin.
Apparently, many animals were straining at their utmost to avoid trees,
mudslides, and other afteraffects of el nino's latest storms. This
straining resulted in multiple hernias of the groin in household pets, and
even some farm animals. Because of this Bubonocele, the three clinics
discussed the best method of treating this outbreak, providing anesthetics
for the surgery and possible nonsurgical treatment.
The ATF computers were programmed by former NBC programming directors and
had instructions to intercept any e-mail which contained the letters
"bubo" in an effort to discover terrorist activities. Once the e-mails
were intercepted and misread by illiterate ATF investigators, they
convinced the FBI to join in this major hunt for possible bacterial
attacks in Southern California.
Upon their release, the veterinary staff pitched in their pocket change
and purchased a dictionary for each FBI and ATF member involved in the
raid, with instructions on how to use them.
