Extra security at Oscars frustrates terrorists

Sunday, March 23rd, 2003

Terrorist organizations worldwide expressed great frustration today at the plan for heightened security at this year’s Oscar Awards show. The US government has long known that anti-US terrorists want nothing more than to strike at America’s most precious resources, it’s movie stars. “These celebrities must be protected at all costs,” stated Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge. “We are pulling security away from other potential terrorist targets all over the greater Los Angeles area,” said LA Police Chief William J. Bratton. “No rogue nation or militant group is going to harm our country’s superstars tonight.”

Jesus gives final approval, war begins

Wednesday, March 19th, 2003

After nearly two thousand years of espousing a strict policy of neighborly love and nonviolence, going so far as to recommend we “turn the other cheek” when struck by an enemy, our lord and savior Jesus Christ this evening revealed that he is in full support of the United States in making a massive preemptive attack on Iraq. In a cabinet meeting tonight, Jesus himself delivered the go-ahead for war directly to US president and born-again Christian George W. Bush with two words: “let’s go.”

Laser eye surgery

Saturday, March 8th, 2003

The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith reported today that he is seriously considering getting laser eye surgery. “I read this pamphlet about it at the mall, and it seems pretty cool,” said Smith. “I’ve always wanted to have a laser eye.” Smith went on to describe the new things this surgery would allow him to do. “I could shine it on the movie screen when I’m at the theater. OK, that’s pretty lame,” said Smith, “but I bet it could also work as a can opener if I shoot the laser around the edge of the can.” Smith later added that he would try to use his new powers “only for good”.

Terror alert: green

Tuesday, March 4th, 2003

The US government today put Rev. Smith’s personal terror alert at “green”, which indicates that there is no immediate danger of a terrorist attack against Smith. “As long as he stays out of major metropolises, especially New York and Washington, DC, the terror outlook for Rev. Smith looks quite good. Nothing to worry about,” said an aide to Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Earlier in the month, Smith’s terror alert was briefly bumped up to “blue”, or “slightest possibility of danger”, when Smith entered his local town hall to pay his electricity bill.
