DENVER - There is a movement in the state of Colorado to rename the Governor's Mansion.

Reports are that many marijuana enthusiasts in the Rocky Mountain State want to name the governor's mansion Grassland.

And there are some Coloradans who want to name it Potland.

Governor John Hickenlooper has expressed his appreciation for the concern of so many of Colorado's young people but he commented that the only way that the name could be changed would be if it was voted on by the Colorado Senate.

When asked if the proposal would go before the Colorado Senate he shook his head and replied that it would not.

He was asked why not and he replied because he is the one who lives in the mansion and he does not really want to live in a mansion called Grassland or Potland.

Governor Hickenlooper commented that The Snow Flurries Trailer Park located in the south part of Denver has already changed its name to The Potland Trailer Park.

He then stated that The Tiny Tykes Day Care Center has announced that it is changing its name to The Grassland Day Care Center.

SIDENOTE: Governor Hickenlooper stated to the press that he does not appreciate being called an old fogey simply because he does not smoke marijuana.

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