Crawford, Texas - (Orchestrated Mess): In a tit-for-tat exchange of cultural realpolitik the Pyongyang Philharmonic Orchestra has been booked to play at Jenna Bush's May 10 wedding at the family homestead Predator Chapel Ranch.
"We're thrilled to bits," a tightly botoxed Laura Bush winced today as North Korea's Ministry of Culture and Voyerism confirmed the coup de foudre arrangements.
The Pyongyang ensemble will be the support act to Michael Jackson who has agreed to sing a few numbers for the newly married Mr & Mrs Henry 'Hagar the Horrible' Hagar.
These are rumored to include oldie favorites 'Fool on the Hill' for the groom's new father in law and Bob Dylan's 'Rainy Day Women #12 & 35'.
The latter, with its catchy 'everybody must get stoned' refrain is believed to have been chosen as the most suitable and Sharia-compliant song for star wedding guest Prince Bandar, former Sordid Arabian ambassador to the US.
The North Koreans meanwhile are due to play the signature theme from The Godfather while President Bush takes bride Jenna to the dance floor for the traditional father-of-the-bride first twirl.
Movie rights for the occasion will be auctioned on eBay. All proceeds to grandpa's cash-strapped George Herbert Bush Center for Intelligence (sic) in Langley, Virginia.
