President Obama takes time to read the barely coherent New York Times during a break in his campaign to repeal syntax.

Washington,D.C.-Calling it "an unfair burden on anyone who has ever tried to construct a sentence.", President Barrack Obama announced today that his administration would seek the immediate repeal of the use of syntax in the United States.

Syntax refers directly to the rules and principles that govern the sentence structure of a language. Critics claim that repealing syntax would mean that people would have to struggle even more in order to understand each other.

"I know must this is jobs about." he said, speaking off teleprompter, "Many people hard times have, writing coherently sentences they are. Repeal the syntax we much do now!"

Republicans trounced the idea at once, calling it a recipe for disaster. They warned of utter chaos if the president is successful at repealing syntax. "Imagine what would happen if...um....uh...um...um...uh...", said Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry.

The president's proposal is already gaining momentum, however. He has at least one very vocal supporter in Reverend Al Sharpton. During a monologue on his highly overrated radio comedy show, Mr. Sharpton denounced Republican opposition to the plan, saying that, "As Democrats resist we much, we must, and we will much, about that, be committed...".

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