MINERS ASK TO GO BACK INTO MINE
Santiago, Chile - Nine of the thirty-three miners freed from a Chilean copper mine less than three weeks ago have asked to go back into the mine, despite the fact that the entrance is still blocked by tons of collapsed rock.
Said one of the miners, "All I know is that my wife keeps nagging me, my kids are always screaming and I can't walk out my front door without Anderson Cooper sticking a mike in my face."
The minors were disheartened to learn that all of the rescue crews have gone back home, and the bullet-shaped capsule that pulled them up to the surface had been dismantled.
Said one, "Are you sure I can't just jump in?"
