Saturday, February 28th, 2004

After nearly two months of being sold out in stores across America, Rev. Smith’s hit book The Brick Testament: Stories from the Book of Genesis is finally back in stock.

No secret service men dove in front of Bush to protect him, nor did they make any moves to apprehend anyone. “I took about 30 shots in ten seconds,” said Terry McDuleph, one of at least seventeen people believed to have shot the president. “I got in a really nice shot just as he was leaning over to kiss his wife,” said McDuleph, “My editor will be pleased.”
