President Bush, fed up with watching reruns of The Office and Grey's Anatomy has decided to step in to "put an end to this television terrorism."
In a campaign he has dubbed "yuck and ha" he has declared the Riders Union largely responsible for the strike and has levied heavy fines. "The Riders Union has got to understand America will not stand for these threats to our people or our country."
Mike Jockey head of the Riders Union had this to say, "Hey man, we just race horses, we don't have anything to do with the strike." In response, the president, accused of being a one trick pony has appealed to congress to start a bombing raid on the stalls and race tracks. "We have received credible intelligence reports that they have weapons of mass interruption to the fall lineup. America will not rest until our country and it's citizens are safe from these little terrorist."
Jockey's response of "Whoa, there easy big fella, just hold your horses." Fell upon deaf ears as Bush called an emergency meeting of congress to declare war. More on this story as it breaks.
