Igloo Ordered Torn Down Because Driveway Too Narrow

WASHINGTON May 8, 2028 - The final plot of habitable public space in the United States not continuously monitored by a surveillance camera finally came under the eye of the lens today in barren northern Alaska.

The device was activated by remote control from the White House by George Walker Bush Hager, the eight year old son of President Henry Hager and First Lady Jenna Bush Hager.

The camera will provide the final vital link needed to continuously monitor Inuit ice fishing and igloo building for permit violations, as well as to observe the remote, isolated, barren, frozen, forbidding, godforsaken, lonely, sparsely populated wilderness for any possible signs of terrorist activities.

The first scene from the camera was broadcast live on network television's morning talk shows. It turned out to be an obscene gesture from an Inuit who happened to be trudging by when the camera was activated.

Young Hager, unfazed by the gesture, laughed and said, "Shoot, Grandpa does that all the time."

Make Gene Mason's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
