The Versailles Tower, Paris, France. 2019. Special to The Spoof. With the national government ordered by King Donald XVI into a shutdown mode that now stretches into its fourth week, nearly a million workers and their families are without pay, and unable to purchase even a loaf of bread.
Angry protesters, many of whom have been required to work, even though they aren't being paid, have gathered in front of the Tower, the residence of King Donald and Queen Melania Antoinette, begging for bread for their hungry children. In response, Queen Melania told CNN's Woof Blister that they should scavenge the dumps for scrap food. When Blister informed her that the government dumps are part of the shutdown and are inaccessible, she reportedly told him: "Then, let them eat cake."
In an ironic twist, the peasants who once made up the base that had been King Donald's strongest supporters are erecting a guillotine within sight of the Tower, bearing the slogan, "It's time to cut the cake!"
