Qwest International's former chief executive is finally heading to jail, nearly two years after being found guilty in a massive case of insider dealing.

He's Going To Kamp Kupcake

Quest or Qwest?

Joseph Nacho becomes Cornholio,

Miranda rights for this chump
Officer to Defendant: "I beg your pardon Sir, but, you have the right to remain silent. you have the right to cable tv. You have the right to play a round of golf at least once a day. You hve the right to either a cup of warm milk or three fingers of bourbon before lights out. You have the right to not worry about being sodomized whilst taking a shower. You have the right to a bed time story. You have the right to your choice of fine wines with dinner.

Send him to Leavenworth, please!
