Army tanks will be replaced by lowriders in the new, politically correct PBS documentary

Complaints by Mexican Americans a new PBS documentary by Ken Burns was not including them has caused the network to go back and shoot additional footage. LULAC, the League of United Latin American Citizens, protested that no Mexican Americans were interviewed for the documentary and that their role was not portrayed at all.

In order to make the necessary additions to maintain political correctness, Burns has had to make some factual changes.

The famous Navajo Indian Code Talkers are now cholos from a barrio in East L.A.. The famous Tuskegee Airmen are now called the Flying Burrito Hombres. Patton did not fight the battle of the bulge with Sherman tanks, he used lowriders. "Kilroy" was not here, but the Virgin of Guadalupe was now! Doolittle's Raiders will now be known as Los Banditos.

PBS and Burns apologize to the rest of the United States, its allies, its former enemies, and all World War Two veterans (living and dead), but political correctness must take precedence over historical accuracy (especially if the film airs on the border during a pledge drive).

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