At a press conference in Washington DC, President George W Bush told journalists that the jet that crashed in New York City had been brought down by a massive flying dinosaur.
'Yep', he said, 'it wasn't sabotage, it had nothing to do with Osama Bin Laden threatening jihad a few days ago, that was just a coincidence. And so was the jet crashing in the same city that 9/11 happened.'
'My fellow Pelicans, a huge flying lizard suddenly appeared and flew into the airliner and made its engines burst into flames. The pilot, Chuck von O'Mendelstein-Sikorsky the Third, managed to land the plane safely on water, and my thoughts are with him and his family. Well, it's not every day a 300 million-year old monster appears and flies into your windshield.'
One reporter asked him: 'Mr. President, isn't it a bit hard to believe that all this happened at the same time? Your final week in office, Bin Laden sending out threatening videos, a jet crashing in New York, that's some set of coincidences!'
'Mr. Reporter, the pterodactyl clearly appeared when nobody was looking, and flew into the jet. Rather than being so cynical why not just accept that an extinct dinosaur with wings travelled through a time warp, and set the plane's engines on fire with it's dragon's breath? I sure do.'
The war on pterodactyls continues.
