Bill Clinton, ex-president of the United States, shocked the world today when he announced that he was retiring from politics. And joining the circus. Heads of state from every nation were stunned by the announcement, as they could not discern any difference between politics and a circus.
A spokesperson for Mr. Clinton said, "President Clinton is retiring but that depends on what the definition of "is" is. A circus ringmaster is something Bill Clinton always wanted to be and he got a lot of experience during his years leading the 3-ring circus of Washington, D.C. And, if Hillary doesn't win the election, she will retire too and join him in the circus; as a lion tamer. And she won't even need a whip and a chair!"
Mr. Clinton added, "I love a good circus. I love being the ringmaster ... and sometimes the clown."
Well, you know what they say; if the oversize floppy shoe fits, wear it.
