In Defense Of The Bush Library
The beast they could not kill.
Perhaps America’s unfunniest Bush Library joke appears to have ninety-nine lives. The nation’s Internet jokesters are getting ahead of the expected site announcement by endlessly recycling variations on this rib-tickler:
“Crawford , Texas (AP) — April 4, 2007
A tragic flood this morning destroyed the personal library of President George W. Bush. The flood began in the presidential bathroom. Both books were completely consumed by the waters, various floating human excrements, and melted crayons. A presidential spokesperson said the president was devastated, as he had almost finished coloring the second one.”
Let’s pace ourselves. We all anxiously await the opening of a widely hoped for humor resource which can serve the nation for decades to come. Until then can we maintain a dignified silence unless we’re actually funny?
