New York, NY-- The United Nations has voted overwhelmingly to have 2011 begin all over again. The New Year started off strange, become even stranger, and then turned ultra-violent in its two weeks. No one seems to like the New Year, so it's being recalled.
"2011 sucks. Everyone is having a bad year so far." said UN General Secretary U Thong. "Everyone hates the snowy weather, the weird bird deaths, and all the violence. It's depressing. Let's start all over again."
The UN voted to start 2011 all over again on January 21. They thought it best to wait awhile, to see if the bad karma goes away by itself.
"There will be another New Year's Eve on January 20. Everyone should go out and get drunk or stoned or whatever." said the UN General Secretary. "Maybe that will get rid of all these bad vibrations."
