Jenna Bush, Action hero!

Jackie Chan, Chao Yun Fat, Jet Li, and Jenna Bush? Does the president's party-hearty daughter have what it takes to be the next big Chinese action hero? Director Long Zanxu seems to think so. He's offered her a part as the lead in an action movie "Hero Defending Country", as Nancy Lee, who fights against terrorism and to improve Sino-American relations.

This is the second movie invitation Long has extended to Miss Bush.

I would appreciate an editor please changing party-harty to party-hearty. Such a blatant misspelling is making me ill.

I wish you the best in your search for Evil-doers, and take great comfort in your continued vigilance.

Sincerely,
Rusty Foster, Kuro5hin.org Founder

I'm just tweaking their noses, if indeed they're out there listening. I personally doubt it.

I hope to have a writeup on what actually did go on soon.

You (or Inoshiro) mentioned something about going through the logs looking for weird hits form the Secret Service. Find anything? Was the reason K5 was so slow because it was getting a good 50% of it's hits from various government agencies (not just the US) wanting to keep up track of our subversive opinions?

Be careful! (4.57 / 7) (#11)
by DesiredUsername on Mon Dec 17, 2001 at 08:30:27 AM EST

Hey, Secret Dudes! Before you get a warrant and arrest Rusty, or even just arrest him without one, please read the following:

1) "Lurk" doesn't mean loitering in dark shadows, ready to leap out and kidnap the President's daughter. It means reading a forum but never posting a comment of your own.

2) "Sore thumbs" is not a threat to torture the President's daughter with thumbscrews. It is a vernacular expression meaning to "stand out from the crowd" or "be especially noticeable". Unlike criminals planning on harming the President's daughter.

Also, none of the above, including Rusty's post, was in secret code. Secret code looks like this: "aldi3 neldi nsdks jasli eu303 ic0w8 93ncp2" or this "the blue bottle leaps from the window at midnight". We have a hard time figuring out what Rusty is talking about even when he posts plain English, so rest assured he'd never resort to anything obscure.

Thank you for your time and attention to this matter of Urgent National Interest.

Dear SS agents: Please beware, Rusty speaks in code... as a Good American, I feel it's my duty to point out the real meaning of his above post. Does anyone else have a "more informed" translation of Rusty's comments? I'm still trying to crack his evil code completely... anyways, the following is concrete proof that Rusty is an anti-American-commie-terrorist-bastard.

by Agent Smith on Wed Dec 19, 2001 at 01:16:09 AM EST

...we've had our eye on you for some time now, Mr. Foster.

(opens the file.)

It seems that you have been living two lives. In one life, you are Rusty, affable owner of a modest-sized scoop site. You play with rdf feeds, write code, and you post test diaries for your users.

(The pages continue to turn.)

...

I'm going to be as forthcoming as I can be, Mr. Foster. You are here because we need your help.

We know that you have been contacted by a certain individual. A man who calls himself jsm. Now, whatever you think you know about this man is irrelevant. He is considered by many authorities to be the most dangerous troll alive.

(leans closer)

My colleagues believe that I am wasting my time with you, but I believe you want to do the right thing.

... ok so yeah it sucks, but I thought a Matrix parody was appropriate here :-)

You bought an ad that links to:

http://www.fas.org/nuke/hew/Usa/Weapons/Airs1.jpg

What is that thing? I assume it's a nuclear device of some sort, but I can't find any links to it that explain what it is.

Go for it, Jenna! (4.00 / 4) (#8)
by demi on Mon Dec 17, 2001 at 03:30:40 AM EST

Make the movie sorta like Operation Condor, except that Jackie, Jenna, and Sammo Hung are journalists in Tora Bora looking for Al-Qaeda's secret nuclear/chem/bio weapons factory. They manage to track down bin Laden, and together they kick his ass! Go America (and China)!

THE END

What? (3.50 / 2) (#13)
by westgeof on Mon Dec 17, 2001 at 09:46:28 AM EST

From what I've read in the tabloids I thought that she was a porn star. Are you saying that's not true?

(Humor aside, that was also my first impression. It just has a nice ring to it ;-)

Next thing you know we'll have an actor for a president. Oh, wait...

Then we could FINALLY have a "twins" action movie without bad cut scenes and body doubles. The acting, I imagine, would still suck.
