The Governator uses the F-word in a veto

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger typically attaches a message to bills he signs or vetoes a bill.

A Democratic assemblyman who heckled the governor during a recent event in San Francisco and told Schwarzenegger to "kiss my gay ass" actually received two messages: the veto letter itself and a not-so-subtle rebuke creatively hidden within it.

Like a find-the-word puzzle, the second message was visible by stringing together the first letter of each line down the left-hand margin. It consisted of the F-word followed by the letters "y-o-u." "My goodness. What a coincidence," said Schwarzenegger spokesman Aaron McLear, "I suppose when you do so many vetoes, something like this is bound to happen."
