This morning, Spudsy and I were chatting about how President Glaikit seems to have totally disappeared lately, and how that probably isn't a good thing, and how he's probably taking advantage of this time to himself by plotting to bomb Iran and stage a military coup to retain indefinite control of the nation.
Enter The Onion:
Bush Begins Preparations For Nation's Final YearLOL!
As his last term in office winds to a close, President Bush has directed White House aids and Cabinet staff to begin preparing for 2008, the nation's 232nd and final year in existence.
"My fellow Americans, it has been an honor to be your last president," said Bush during a televised address Tuesday, assuring citizens he would do everything possible over the next few months to promote a smooth transition into utter oblivion. "I want you all to know that I do not intend to let what precious little time we have left go to waste. That's why I ask all citizens to pull together and follow me, so we can accomplish everything we've ever wanted to before it all crumbles around us in a terrible belch of smoke and ash."
… "I am committed to making this the best damn Swan Song the world has ever seen," said Bush, after enclosing a copy of the Constitution and a recipe for corn dogs in an air-tight titanium capsule to be placed just across the Canadian border. "I know this looks like the end—and it is—but I intend to go out with a bang. Now, who's with me?"
Better laugh now…before it's too true to be funny.
