1 Which brings us to tonight’s Wørd

2 Machiavelli Machiavelli

3 Nerd I once quoted Machiavelli in a job interview

4 Didn't want to say "doing your wife" They asked me where I saw myself in 10 years

5 Plays the field So I went on about how Machiavelli said you must seize opportunities but not rely upon them as fortune is fickle. Thus I keep my options open.

6 Didn’t need toilet paper I have a political science degree and wanted to put it to use

7 Took socialism, bad at ice hockey I know each PoliSci major has a CSIS file

8 Cry for attention Every now and then I like to use trigger words the NSA watch for on international phone calls

9 Cry for help I like the idea that a guy in some office in Houston or Langley will have to spend an hour reviewing my thoughts on planes and guns

10 Think you can do better? By that I mean, taking a paintball gun on a plane to New York to shoot Stephen Colbert for not doing a The Wørd segment tonight

11 A Muslim and a cartoonist walk into a bar... I like the thought that my crazy joke is wasting the time of some part of the American government
