HOLLYWOOD - Hollywood motion picture moguls Steven Spielberg and George Lucas have stated that they are seriously considering purchasing the entire state of Arizona.
Spielberg informed Yippee-Ki-Yay Magazine that he has had his attorney do some extensive research on the subject and from that study he has determined that right now would be a great time to buy the state.
He noted that due to Governor Jan "The Man" Brewer's ban on the Spanish language, mariachi music, and Mexican food hardly anyone is visiting the state anymore choosing to either visit New Mexico to the east, Utah to the north, or Nevada and California to the west.
Lucas added that he has personally had some text messages from President Obama informing him that he will definitely consider any offer to purchase the state.
The president did disclose to Lucas that just last week he had received a call from the Green Guacamole Drug Cartel of Yucatan, Mexico and that they had made a tremendously generous offer.
When Lucas was asked why he and Spielberg want to buy the "Headache State" he smiled and replied that they want to purchase it to use as a storage area for their tons and tons of motion picture equipment which now numbers at around 4,000 pieces.
The word on the streets of Maricopa, Arizona is that Sheriff Joe "Pinky" Arpaio is not a happy camper. He has reportedly stated that if Arizona is sold he will quit his sheriff's job and move up to Alaska and become a salmon fisherman.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: The reason why Sheriff "Pinky" Arpaio would become a salmon fisherman is because salmon are pink and pink is his favorite color.]
