Bonfire and fireworks show

(Washington, DC) President Bush hosted Earth Day festivities today on the White House lawn. Events included drag racing on Pennsylvania Avenue, cookouts, an air show, military fire power display, a lumberjack competition, a turkey shoot and free SUV's to the first 50 guests. The featured speaker was former Exxon CEO, Lee Raymond.

The President said the celebration was a great way to bring attention to the environment and to ways we can help reduce global warming. The event concluded with a huge bonfire and fireworks show.

This year's celebration saw a decrease in the number of casualties. Only 3 deaths and 15 wounded compared to 7 deaths and 35 wounded last year when Dick Cheney participated in the turkey shoot.

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