One inch of joy surmounts a grief of span

Because to laugh is proper to a man

Hypothetical Breaking News In The Y2011

  1. The spirit of bipartisanship

President Obama had at last come out from the closet as Moslem and is going to take another wife. Michelle Bachmann will restore the bipartisan spirit in the WH and as soon as both wives have the same name they both will be called The First Lady. In the private situations one of them will be referred to as a First Lady and another- First Lady- In- Waiting. The Secret Service is going to call them the Donkey and the Elephant. GOP and Dems had already endorsed this positive influence of the moderate Islam.

2. House marriages

In the same spirit of bipartisanship Rep. Barney Frank will marry Rep. Eric Cantor on the opening of the renewed Congress in January. After the ceremony the seats in Congress will be all painted in mixed red/blue color and don't ask don't tell will be officially abandoned among the Congress junior staff.

3. The BIPAR species

A new species had been discovered by scientists in the WashingtonDC area. It is called a BIPAR and is half donkey and half-elephant. The species feeds on money, does not care which currency as soon as it is not counterfeit and does not take credit cards. When spawning it produces a special brood of humans typically working in the media.

4. Strategerie

Apparently recently Russian troops had conducted a mutual operation with the US troops on the Afghan territory. This is a result of the new strategy of our Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton which in Russian is called "strategia vovlechenia' and can be literally translated as a "sucking- in strategy' or a "seduction strategy'. Rumor has it that when Hillary offered herself to Premier Putin for support he called Bill Clinton on the phone about it and then- politely declined the offer.

5. A matter of hearts

Several women contributors on the OEN site, deeply offended by the comments of one author that "women lie much better than men because they put their hearts into it' had decided from now on not to put their hearts into it.
