Bush Sells Louisiana Back to the French

News Edition: 09/29/2005

BATON ROUGE, LA. The White House announced today that President Bush has successfully sold the state of Louisiana back to the French at more than double its original selling price of $11,250,000.

This is a bold step forward for America, said Bush. And America will be stronger and better as a result. I stand here today in unity with French Prime Minister Jack Shiraq, who was so kind to accept my offer of Louisiana in exchange for 25 million dollars cash.

The state, ravaged by Hurricane Katrina, will cost hundreds of billions of dollars to rebuild.

Jack understands full well that this ones a fixer upper, said Bush. He and the French people are quite prepared to pump out all that water, and make Louisiana a decent place to live again. And theyve got a lot of work to do. But Jacks assured me, if its not right, theyre going to fix it.

The move has been met with incredulity from the already beleaguered residents of Louisiana.

Shuba-pie! said New Orleans resident Willis Babineaux. Frafer-perly yom kom drabby sham!

However, President Bushs decision has been widely lauded by Republicans.

This is an unexpected but brilliant move by the President, said Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist. Instead of spending billions and billions, and billions of dollars rebuilding the state of Louisiana, weve just made 25 million dollars in pure profit.

This is indeed a smart move, commented Fox News analyst Brit Hume. Not only have we stopped the flooding in our own budget, weve made money on the deal. Plus, when the god-awful French are done fixing it up, we can easily invade and take it back again.

The money gained from 'The Louisiana Refund' is expected to be immediately pumped back into the rebuilding of Iraq.
