There was an apparent sighting of reclusive Vice-President-for-Life Dick Cheney yesterday. Elmo Gumwater of Tuscadillo, Texas told local television station KBBQ that he saw the elusive Vice President eating pork rinds with Elvis in front of a local 7-11. "Sure I'm sure it was him!"

Experts have only been able to confirm three authenticated sightings of the Vice President in the last six years, and the location of the $300 million Vice Presidential Library remains a State Secret.
