The United States Congress is not happy with the name Washington Redskins.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The United States Congress has issued a statement that they are fed up with the tens of thousands of complaints they are receiving regarding the name of the NFL's Washington Redskins.

Congressman Tom Udall of New Mexico stated that dozens of politicians including state senators, governors, and mayors have asked that the name Redskins be changed due to its derogatory and racist nature.

A national group known as Just Say No To Redskins has filed at least 37 official complaints with team owner Daniel "Danny Boy" Synder.

Synder has been very adamant in his remarks that there is no way that he will ever change the name Redskins which in essence refers to anyone who has a sunburn and not necessarily to Indians.

The Redskins owner even refused to compromise by at least dropping the name Redskins and replacing it with Native-Americans. He laughed as he sarcastically uttered the words The Washington Native-Americans?

Congress has responded by informing Mr. Synder that he is leaving them no recourse but to have their legal representatives file a lawsuit against him and the Washington Redskins organization.

SIDENOTE: President Obama was asked for his opinion on the matter. He replied that the name Redskins is as offensive as the name Blackskins or Yellowskins. He suggested that perhaps a more appropriate and politically correct name could be The Washington Red Tapers.

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