I've been licking that cactus again....

A White House aide has revealed that Donald Trump has to be repeatedly told to stop licking a Cactus in the White House.

The Cactus, which is a large green one in the Oval Office, and was a gift from Barack Obama on his leaving

Obama said 'Yes, we did think about putting prawns in the curtain rails, but this seemed a bit more special. I told the Donald that I never licked it for luck, hoping that would plant the idea in his head to lick it. I mean, people tell him repeatedly not to look at the sun during solar eclipses, so it is the same thing really'

'It was so much more successful than we ever thought it would be' continued the charismatic former President. 'Apparently they have tell him not to lick the cactus every time he walks past it. I mean, obviously, the world is doomed, but this helps to level the sense of impending catastrophe. I was watching Air Force One yesterday, I thought wouldn't Harrison Ford be a really good President? Sometime our best hopes are fictional, aren't they?

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