New York, NY (PRWEB) April 3, 2007
In February's free issue, NewsLaugh.com, The Sanely Funny Humor Magazine, reports that Iran may become the 51st state, because it's the only safe way for the wily nation to acquire nuclear weapons. Here's a brief excerpt from this extremely improbable story:
"As Iran continues its determined agenda of reckless self-endangerment - such as its inevitably suicidal attempt to gain nuclear weapons, along with its idiotically confrontational arrest of 15 British soldiers and its military meddling in Iraq - the answer has grown clearer to the crafty Iranian leadership that the safest way out may be to apply for U. S. statehood.
"Upon admission as the 51st state, Iran would become a nuclear power without the possibility of being attacked, at least, by the United States, George Bush could order the new governor of Iran to release the British sailors, so Iran could save face, and Bush could demand that the new state keep its conniving hands out of Iraq.
"In fact, as the 51st state, Iran would transform the United States from being any sort of threat to being obligated to defend it as much as it's prepared to defend Texas.
"Of course, if Iran's initiative toward U. S. statehood is to gain Congressional approval, Iran and America will obviously have to make some mutual accommodations. For instance, Iran will consent to fly the American flag in the state capital, most likely Tehran, and America will agree to find a place for the Iranian flag in Washington, as well to add a 51st star to Old Glory."
