image for Plague Of Locusts Devours Michelle Obama's Garden
From Egypt, With Love

DATELINE:WASHINGTON_DC:-- A bizarre swarm of locusts descended without warning yesterday, directly over the White House. The locusts quickly devoured Michelle Obama's garden and then disappeared without a trace. The garden was totally destroyed and Michelle burst into tears when she saw the damage to her magickal herbs.

The highly unusual insect phenomenon was investigated immediately by the Secret Service. The locust swarm began in Egypt's Eastern Desert on Good Friday. Weather satellite data was used to track the swarm as it moved from North Africa into the Atlantic last week.

Scientists identified the bug as Masonicus horrificus. It was the first time the pest was ever found in North America. The locust is the same species that attacked Pharaonic Egypt during the time of Moses.

The White House staff was puzzled by the event and they tried to find a Bible to get more information. No Bible exists anymore in Washington so the staff simply watched a DVD of 'The Ten Commandments' instead.

Late reports from Washington indicate the birth of an horrific pandemic. White House staffers were busy Saturday, searching the DVD library for more information.
