Washington residents were shocked at the news that George Bush's bubble has burst. Experts claim a large flock of shit was drawn into the fans as the bubble flew dangerously close to the ground with virtually no fuel or energy. As the bubble was downed, American citizens found themselves engulfed in a tidal wave of shit as it hit the fans.
Unlike the lucky passengers and crew of US Airways flight 1549 which belly flopped miraculously on to the Hudson River, Bush's bubble hit the ground vertically and at full throttle. Staggering from the wreckage, the hapless former president was heard to exclaim, "Obama's burst my bubble but I've come out smelling of roses and daddy promises to get me a new bubble". He was then heard to perform some dialogue from the character 'Elmer Fudd' in the bug's bunny cartoons before being sedated and returned to a high security ape and primate rescue centre.
The shockwaves of the impact could be felt for eight years all across the world as further flocks of shit hit the fans of other neo conservatives.
"Shit has a natural flocking instinct", claims a top aviation expert. "It's been building up there for years into a super flock just waiting for the right fans to be drawn into. Everyone knew these flocks were becoming enormous but no one would deal with them until they formed the perfect storm together with a fog of war and began dropping on banks".
Bankers are currently trying to put out the meltdown by throwing trillions of dollars of taxpayers' money on the blazing bubble. The bubble was being piloted by the actor Leslie Neilson who denied all knowledge of the event.
"I do mean it! and don't callme Shirley!" He said in a statement.
