Fred E’s dairy farm in Pennsylvania has finally made the big time. He sent this article. Way to go Fred. Yank an udder for me.
Sven L. sent me a link to a new work of political satire. He claims he didn’t write it.
An acquaintance of mine just wrote a hilarious political satire. Since the author wishes to remain anonymous, I agreed to publish it. Link below. It is a hilarious story. But I need to warn you: it is political satire, and it is not suitable for those who are offended by humor, including but not limited to satire.
The story is about a group of college students who accidentally derail the legislature’s efforts to raise taxes. They even put an end to the governor’s presidential campaign. By pure accident, of course. They really didn’t plan to do so – it, well, just happened. But since all of this is fiction, that didn’t happen either. Of course.
What state did this happen in, you ask? Well, since none of this happened, it all happened in the state of Fillmore. Which, obviously, is purely fictional. So are the characters in this book. Any similarities between these fictional characters and events, and people and events in real life, are obviously purely coincidental. But if these characters had been real, they would have lived somewhere near you. Which they aren’t, so they didn’t. Obviously.
Governor Bland Feeblebottom has never existed. But if he had existed, he would have wanted to sign the Awesome Tax Grabification Act. And become president.
State House Speaker Tony Limpono has never existed. But if he had existed his soul would have been as pure as the wind-driven snow.
Senate President Sprout Bribell has never existed. But if he had existed, he would not have used his elected position to benefit his son’s hotel business.
Professor Blabbert has never existed. But if he had existed, he would have chaired the Great Big Center for Very Important Studies at the State University College Kampus in Millard.
Dick Lapland has never existed. But if he had existed, he would have killed Governor Feeblebottom’s presidential campaign. Unintentionally, of course. Obviously.
Todd Salmon has never existed. But if he had existed, he would have taken a nap in the back seat of his Yugo.
Lord Broadbeam has never existed. But if he had existed, he would have gotten stuck in the door to Shirky the Hungarian’s dorm room.
The city of Millard has never existed. But if it had existed, it would have been the capital of the state of Fillmore.
The state of Fillmore has never existed. But if it had existed it would be a state near you. Which it didn’t, so it isn’t. Obviously.
The author wishes to stress that this book is pure fiction. None of this could ever happen. Obviously.
This is from this day in 1994.
