Surely this has to be a joke!
Well...yeah. Didn't anybody find this paragraph -- if none of the other things, like the use of Old English or the bit about the police and the protesters -- a dead giveaway?
The Liberty and Freedom In Language Act has been fast-tracked by Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN), and is expected to easily pass a floor vote tomorrow morning. President Bush has indicated that he will then sign the Act in a solemn Rose Garden telecast at noon, after which he will ceremonially lower his trousers and expose his buttocks eastward, in the direction of France. In a display of bipartisan support for the measure, Congressional Democratic leaders will take part in the signing ceremony by forming a single file line to approach the President, genuflect, and lightly kiss his exposed posterior.
And hey, Rov
-- could you guys maybe (pretty please?
) translate for those of us who are Old-English-impaired?
