Warning: the following contains satirical content and celebrity/political parodies and is meant for entertainment purposes only.

Tumble Bush
President George Bush took a tumble recently while dirt biking at his ranch. The Prez only suffered minor scrapes and bruises but taught a valuable listen to the youth of America, “Don’t Drink and Drive”.

Iraqi MP3 Crackdown
The Pentagon is admitting that the recent raid on Iraqi governing council’s Ahmed Chalabi’s home was prompted by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America), accusing the Iraqi leader of illegally downloading mp3’s of the new Avril Lavigne cd. After an exhaustive search of his hard drive only old New York Dolls tracks were found. Said Chalabi, “So I am a big fan of the CBGB scene, so sue me.”

The White House is also denying a rumor that the tragic bombing of an Iraqi wedding party had anything to do with the family’s use of Kazaa file sharing software.

Iraqi SushiNegativland Hacked
The top secret servers of experimental music makers Negativland was recently hacked and a copy of “The Mashin of Christ” was stolen and released to file sharing networks. You can read the details here, http://www.negativland.com/mashin/release.htm

Sushi Terrorist Threat
The Homeland Security Dept. and the FDA have issued a safety bulletin warning consumers to watch out for sushi that comes from Iraq, believing it to be the latest terrorist threat.

To combat the latest threat the Homeland Security Dept. along with the FDA, FBI, CIA, FAA, and FCC have formed special task forces to analyze the problem and they all promise to share their results with one another by November 2006. Senator Bill Nelson has also called for a special sub-committee to hold hearings into the Iraqi sushi problem.

New Prison Funding for Pirates
The Bush administration announced this week Federal funding of 6 million dollars to build new federal prisons to house people illegally downloading mp3’s. The new prison funding is in conjunction with the new Pirate act now before Congress. I keep telling my Mom to stop downloading those Dean Martin tracks but I am afraid she is incorrigible.
