image for Donald Trump's Next 'Apprentice' Show to Take Place on the Moon
The Donald's latest real-estate and television market

It's official! Donald Trump, his hair, and the contestants, props and crew of "The Apprentice" are heading for outer space next season.

NASA held a press conference to explain why a commercial group, and not the space agency, would be initiating the first lengthy project on the moon. The NASA rep spoke of budgets, Congressional oversight, timing and safety. Then he got huffy and said, "Let's face it. The Donald won't have to pay a penny for fuel. That guy can generate more than enough hot air for a trip to the moon and back. How can we compete with that?"

A Spoof reporter has found info on the "spacey" challenges planned for Apprentice contestants. They include: developing a new hair-care line for the no-gravity environment, testing a variety of products in the adult diaper market (for absorbency, weight, and overall design), and writing a manual about maintaining a healthy equilibrium in 'over the moon' relationships.

Rumor is that Barbara Walters is frantically trying to "make nice" with Trump, so that she'll have the first televised interview with the cast and crew when they return. As for Rosie O'Donnell, she had no official comment. However, Spoof spies report that although she bitterly resents the publicity Trump will get with his latest act, O'Donnell's delighted about the fact that, for at least a short time, she and her nemesis will NOT be sharing the same planet. Oh joy!

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
