Governor Brewer says that Woody Zinston who has an IQ of 17 will be one of the first patients at the new facility.

PHOENIX - Governor Jan Brewer has just made a much anticipated announcement from her governor's mansion in Phoenix.

She told the assembled news media that plans have been finalized on a new 30,000 mental patient facility to be built just outside the town of Maricopa.

The governor stated that Arizona leads the nation in number of mental patients but is ranked number 47 in the number of mental facilities.

She noted that the reason is due to the fact that a lot of Arizona money has gone into building the border fence.

Governor Brewer said that cost overruns have caused the initial cost estimate to increase by 700 percent.

She pointed out that upon reflection she should have had the fence built by illegal aliens instead of by union workers who make up to $28 an hour.

Brewer did admit that her BFF Maricopa County Sheriff Joe "Pinky" Arpaio had suggested using his pink clad prisoners but she felt that it would not be right to embarrass the convicts in that manner.

SIDENOTE: Governor Brewer has not announced it yet but she plans on naming the 20 story mental health facility The Governor Jan Brewer & Sheriff Joe Arpaio Mental Health Building.

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