This little fake news story is worth it JUST for the next-to-last paragraph! Seriously. I didn't see it coming at ALL! :evilgrin:

OVERCONFIDENT LAURA BUSH BOMBS WITH TASTELESS "YO MAMA" JOKES
Rose Garden Performance Greeted With Stunned Silence

Just two days after her comedy performance at Saturday night's White House Correspondents annual dinner was hailed by the national media as a triumph, an overconfident Laura Bush bombed in her second comedy outing, using a Rose Garden ceremony to try out some new material that leaned heavily on tasteless "Yo mama" jokes.

Trouble began at the outset of the ceremony, a presentation of an award to former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, when the First Lady impishly warned the press contingent, "I hope you don't mind if I go a little blue today."

What followed, one observer said, was a torrent of "Yo mama jokes" rife with language and imagery that could "peel paint."

While most of the First Lady's ribald jests were unfit for publication in a family newspaper, one of her tamer quips went like this: "Yo mama's so hairy, her armpits look like she has Don King in a headlock."

In an attempt at damage control, the White House later released an official statement later in the day reassuring the American people that Mrs. Bush would not "quit her day job."

But according to one unnamed White House source, Mrs. Bush may have wildly miscalculated the public's appetite for her saucy comedy material: "If people wanted to hear a bunch of filthy remarks from the First Lady, they would have elected John Kerry."

Elsewhere, the groom of "runaway bride" Jennifer Wilbanks took back the engagement ring he gave her and replaced it with an electronic ankle bracelet.
