New York, NY (PRWEB) July 24, 2006
In this week’s free issue, NewsLaugh.com, The Sanely Funny Weekly Humor Magazine, reports that, as expected, George Bush vetoed the Charcoal Grill Bill that was passed by the Senate and the House -- without, however, enough votes in either house to override his ill-considered flick of the pen. It was the first veto of his presidency.
Citing the role of carbon, not only in charcoal briquettes, but as the fundamental component of life, Mr. Bush stated, “You’ve got to respect carbon. Without it, none of us would be here.” He then pointed to himself, and said, “For instance, I wouldn’t be here. I owe my life to carbon.”
Standing behind him were a number of effervescently grateful families who had been invited to participate in the photo op.
Mr. Bush, smiling broadly, picked up one of the kids, and stated, “Same goes for all these families and their wonderful children. Without carbon, they wouldn’t be here, either.”
A reporter noted, "I believe that's correct, sir, since carbon is also found in oil, and I'm sure they drove or flew in."
“Oh, s---,” Bush exclaimed. “Being the president is a lot harder than I thought. Don’t tell me. In oil, too?"
"Yes, sir, and in coal."
"Well, I’m not a chemist," the President admitted. "So I’ll have to look into that."
