image for Californians Desire New Governor Because They Can't Spell His Name
Arnold Swartezegger (or whatever)

The new governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was elected last week has hit a road block. News agents are constantly asking him how to spell his name, but it isn't just the press who are confused, the common people are crying out in protest.

"Davis was easy to spell," quotes first grader, Billy Pilgrim, "But this new guy…"

Even the commander in chief, George Bush II, to no one's surprise, is having trouble with the newly elected leader. "Oh yeah, that guy from Kindergarten Cop, he's in politics now. Well, I'll be a monkey's uncle. What was his last name, screwdriver…something like that, it reminded me of a drink."

"His name, it's like totally hard to like spell. I mean come on, it has like ten million zillion letters in it. I mean for-real. I can't believe got like that question wrong, on like my current events test, it's like, impossible," proclaims a teenager from the Los Angeles valley.

His wife, Maria Shriver, has disputed claims that she refused to change her name on the grounds of its long complicated spelling, "While I love my husband dearly, even I have trouble with it at times, besides, I am part of the Kennedy clan."

After a week, of changing all the stationary in the capital, then re-changing it to the properly spelled name, the staff can finally set down to do some work.

Meanwhile, the "Recall ‘Swartezegger or whatever his name is' vote Jim "You can spell my name" Brown campaign has received a record number of 150,000 signatures in a week.
