Bush, Cheney Drop Huge Cake On Iraq, Crush Power Plant
In celebration of the third anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, President Bush and Vice President Cheney dropped an enormous three-tiered anniversary cake on central Iraq, accidentally crushing the only working power plant in the area.
"Everything's just great in Iraq," said Cheney, who was so thrilled with the progress of the country that he was "planning to winter there someday."
"Things are so good now," said President Bush, "just imagine how fantastic it will be when they have a McDonald's on every corner."
Mohammed dar al Salim, a former baker whose shop had been destroyed by looters a year ago, agreed. "The future is certainly bright," he told reporters. "It's the present that worries me."
Fifty people who were killed yesterday as a result of the civil war could not be reached for comment.
