Conjoined twins, kidnapped to a coal mine, where they are trapped by a cave-in and then rescued.
The perfect media frenzy-storm.

It should be an Afganistan coal mine, filled with sharks. Also, for good measure, the sharks should separate them.

Then we discover that the sharks are part of the Axis of Evil.

But that's ok, 'cause they'll contract the West Nile Virus sent to them in a letter by a mosquito.

Would that count as one abduction or two?

A mosquito that sends tainted letters to addresses that, when marked on a map, form a smiley face pattern.

And it's all being controlled by the incredibly intelligent talking super mice.

Those who find fault with all that is American might take note that both these twins and these, who are not Americans, have been brought to the United States for surgery. Is there any better proof that socialized medicine does not work in cases such as these, no matter what leftist claptrap hollywood spews?

Well, one could compare the infant mortality rates of the U.S. and Sweden... or Cuba, for that matter. As for claptrap, I bow to your expertise in such matters.

I heard that the mice are being used to grow spare donor parts on their backs.
