MUMBAI: POTUS Prez Obama had just finished his vacuous, limpid speech at the iconic Taj hotel in this heavily fortified city. Having paid lip-service to fighting terrorism together and voicing other gratuitous statements Obama and his security detail suddenly faced a hit-the-decks moment when a solitary gunshot was heard.
Fearful that those dastardly Porki terrorists [that Obama had avoided mentioning in his 'We stand With You' speech] were at it again, the 34 American gunships that accompanied the Prez were all set to turn 90 degrees and invade neighboring Beggarstan. Fortunately another Clintonian major nuclear flash-point was thwarted when the Mumbai leader Veevee Rajraj clarified:
"Please re-holster your weapons Yankees. This is only a traditional 1-gun salute for the President. It is our way of welcoming him Mumbai-style"
Mumbai's Police Chief Gunshot Ganpat concurred :
"No it is absolutely not true that one of our local cops was so excited to have a gun with real bullets that he decided to test it out on his right thigh. The truth is that we have reduced all 21-gun salutes to 1-gun salute because we are conserving bullets, saving them for killing those crazy terrorists next-door.
"Since the Indian Govt has spent over 10 billion dollars buying Yankee planes to keep you guys happy and help your dwindling economy, we local Mumbai cops have had to take a budget cut. As a result our bullet collection is very low, hence the 1-gun salute".
Meanwhile Osammy Ben Linden, feeling left out as usual, attempted to steal some air time by releasing one of many pre-recorded videos trying to take credit saying:
"We sent our jihadi-martyr sucker to take care of business but the fool failed and ended up shooting himself instead. Bing-bang walla-walla bing-bang we will succeed".
