In a surprising development, the Southern States of the United States of America (USA) have decided that the President and the First Family may receive euthanasia at public expense!
For President Barracks Obama's popularity is on the decline.
Many Louisiana Clam Gumbo places are displaying "Pres Must Die" posters, whilst in Missouri and Mississipi, a truck with no 12 gauge in the gunrack and no "Obama - Obummer" sticker will not be allowed to park withing 15 miles of a WalMart.
And what lies behind this redneck uprising? - why, only health care for the masses!
But we must realise that there is very little chance of Mr Obama taking advantage of the euthanasia offer because of the recently demonstrated high mobility of his wife's hips.
Many education-resistant Southern-States Americans consider that raising the consciousness of their children will result in a purer gene pool as their offspring will resist Daddy's attentions.
So the shrimp harvest will decline and the cotton remain unpicked.
So let us praise the British NHS to the skies as a model for modern health care!
Maybe we can drag the Mississipians forward into the dark ages.
