George Bush was the pride of America today, as for the first time ever, he wrote his own name in joined up writing.
The President is believed to have been studying with the aid of a private tutor and is said by a Whitehouse source, to be delighted by his progress.
"Gee look at that. It looks just great. Somebody give me my gold star. Now I can't hardly wait for something else to sign as I'm a big boy now. Maybe brother Jeb's got a death warrant I can have a shot at"
Retiring British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, commented:
"Well hey! You know? I always knew George had the ability for something like this. If only he'd had the lessons before the Kyoto summit, then the world might have been in better shape"
But a Whitehouse Aide told The Spoof:
"It was because the President wasn't in agreement with Kyoto that he didn't sign. Not because he couldn't write"
