Washington D.C. -
After unconfirmed rumors from an unreliable source claiming to have heard unconfirmed rumors from an unreliable terrorist, who claims to be a terrorist, but can't be relied on to blow anything up properly, President Bush has raised the terrorist threat level to goldenrod.
"If the unconfirmed rumors came from a more reliable source, we would consider raising the level to orange, but due to the nature of the rumors, a mild raise from yellow was called for. That's how we came up with goldenrod. C3P0 was nicknamed Goldenrod, and everyone likes him. I'm president."
Soon after, the Association of Unemployed Protesters with Nothing Better to do, gathered on the steps of the capitol, to protest the use of the term "rod".
"First, we had to watch Janet Jackson corrupt the nation", said protester Dan "The Hippie" Hippisky. "Now, the President himself is using the term 'rod'. What's next? Appointing a Secretary of Pornography?"
