New York, New York (IP) - Al Gore has finally announced that he will run for president. He is being hired by President Bush to run errands.
Al will use a bicycle to run to the grocery store if the President gets hungry or to run to the drug store if the President needs some medication or condoms. He also will run down to the package store to obtain bottles of liquor that the President uses for medicinal purposes.
Gore could have had the use of an SUV with which to run the errands but Al wants to "keep it green" and will be riding a three wheeled bicycle with 3 large baskets mounted on the front and sides of the trike. There is also an air horn and ringer bell attachment on the handle bars. The trike is also outfitted with a small generator that will power the lights. Two mirrors provide an extra margin of safety. Gore has attached a cute bumper sticker which reads "I LOVE TRIKE".
"I LOVE TRIKE" is a clever play on words in reference to "I LOVE IKE" which referred to the "I love Dwight D. Eisenhower" slogan of the 1950's. Dwight coined the phrase "military industrial complex" and warned the world to be wary of it. Apparently no one listened to him.
