The Unites States – a nation already reeling from eight years of arrogance, incompetence, fear-mongering and fraud — took yet another haymaker to the chin yesterday when President George W. Bush announced he was becoming a member of the Flat Earth Society.
In a legacy already chock-full of examples that the President has an overly-developed hatred for knowledge and reason, this may seem to some as the cherry on the sundae.
The Flat Earth Society (look them up on your own — they're dumb, they're sad, and they're for real) was — unsurprisingly — overjoyed by the addition of this powerful — if peabrained — member to its organization.
"This is a major coup for us," boasted Whit Chinless, an FES spokesman. "The Flat Earth Society has always prided itself on being the nemesis of inquiry, of the factual, of the advancement and learning of mankind. We hope that the recruitment of President Bush to our mouth-breathing ranks will for all time solidify our standing as the all time enemy of intelligent thought. We could never hope for a more fitting standard-bearer."
Mr. Chinless went on to say that he hoped the President's involvement in the FES could inspire the group to denounce "other fraudulent notions such as the 9-11 attacks, the existence of owls, the flavor of wintergreen, and the month of October."
