“The razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human.”

Transcript of a fox news interview with Vice President Cheney:
CAVUTO: All right. Sir, a couple of little issues I want settled, or maybe to get the real skinny on. One was this blowout you had the other day with Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont. What happened?
CHENEY: Well, I guess you could say we had a little floor debate in the United States Senate.
CAVUTO: I heard it was more than a debate.
CHENEY: Well, I expressed myself rather forcefully, felt better after I had done it.
CAVUTO: All right. Now, did you use the “F” word?
CHENEY: That’s not the kind of language I usually use.
CAVUTO: All right, because the reports were that you did.
CHENEY: Yes, that’s not the kind of language I ordinarily use. But…
CAVUTO: What did you tell him?
CHENEY: I expressed my dissatisfaction for Senator Leahy.
CAVUTO: Over his comments about you and Halliburton?
CHENEY: No. It was partly that. It was partly – also, it had to do with – he is the kind of individual who will make those kinds of charges and then come after you as though he’s your best friend. And I expressed, in no uncertain terms, my views of the – of his conduct and walked away.
CAVUTO: Did you curse at him?
CAVUTO: Do you have any regrets?
CHENEY: No. I said it, and I felt that…
CAVUTO: So let me understand, he comes up, he sees you, Mr. Vice – he’s all nice, shakes your hand. And then what do you do, let into him?
CHENEY: Explain my unhappiness with the way he conducted himself. Part of the problem here is, that instead of having a substantive debate over important policy issues, he had challenged my integrity. And I didn’t like that. But, most of all, I didn’t like the fact that after he had done so then he wanted to act like, you know, everything’s peaches and cream.
And I informed him of my view of his conduct in no uncertain terms. And as I say, I felt better afterwards.
CAVUTO: All right. Now, they say you broke decorum for normally a Senate or congressional session. Now, technically, I guess, it wasn’t in session.
CHENEY: No, we weren’t in session. What we were doing was waiting to take our pictures, our official Senate photo. And I go up and sit in the chair, as the president of the Senate (UNINTELLIGIBLE).
CAVUTO: What was reaction from the crowd?
CHENEY: Well, I think that a lot of my colleagues felt that what I had said badly needed to be said, that it was long overdue.
CAVUTO: Pretty feisty guy, aren’t you?
CHENEY: Well, I’m usually fairly calm (UNINTELLIGIBLE).
CAVUTO: Your wife’s just a few feet away.
CHENEY: And ordinarily I don’t express myself in strong terms. But I thought it was appropriate here.

Jodee Berry sits with her toy Yoda at her lawyer’s office. Berry, a former Hooters waitress, has sued the restaurant where she worked saying she was promised a new Toyota for winning a beer sales contest. Berry, 26, won the contest in April. She believed she’d won a new car. She was blindfolded and led to the restaurant parking lot, but when the blindfold was removed she found she was the winner not of a Toyota, but a toy Yoda, the little green guy from Star Wars.
