A lake near Washington, DC has many of those in congress puzzled by it's constant changing in shape and how it smells.
Senator John McCain, who lost in the last Presidential campaign to President Barack Obama, told reporters that the rumors are true and that all they had to do is go to nearby Thurmond, Maryland and study the shape of Hunting Creek Lake and write down what they smell over the next few weeks.
"When the wife and I took a picnic to get away from the Senate, we parked out there and took a small hike. Suddenly, there was the smell of pine in the air. It smelled just like that stuff the cosmetic ladies sell when they come knocking, and it kept getting stronger the longer we walked."
"That very night, it changed to cedar", stated McCain. "Plus, we woke up and the lake had edged over into our tent. We packed what we could and left in the middle of the night."
Even the President and his family tried to go out there for a day on the beach and to drive and walk around the 44-acre lake. They were back within hours AND FOUND THEIR VEHICLE In A PUDDLE OF WATER & BODYGUARDS WET NEARBY. This comes straight from the President, who told the VP and others Saturday night.
"The President told us about it after he and the family had changed clothes", stated Alexander Park, Under Secretary. "Their clothes had a skunky smell and they were all wet from the heavy rain."
"Since word has gotten around, not as many people come out here", stated John Martin, who runs the small supplies and snack store. "After a couple of weeks of rain, the lake has actually grown larger! Then, for three whole days last two weeks ago, the smell of smoke was in the air. You don't have to take my word for it. Just ask any of the families who were in the cabins. We were sold out and everyone who came in out of the rain, mentioned the woodsmoke-like odor!"
Both the FBI and the CIA are apparently looking into the phenomenon, but sharing little if any information.
