Bush to Visit the Third World via Rover

Funny story written by Lorenzo Lee

Wednesday, 14 April 2004

WASHINGTON - At a campaign stop at Georgetown University, President Bush outlined his specific plans on foreign policy with the Third World.

A student from the audience, apparently Asian, asked Bush, "What are your foreign policies regarding the Third World Countries?"

After a long pause, Bush answered: "Well, we will have to intensify NASA's funding so that we will reach the Third World in at least three years. Probably through a modified version of the Rover Spacecraft."

The crowd, composed mostly of political science students, suddenly went into a stunned silence.

Bush, thinking that he went too far, followed: "Oh yes, of course...we will have to visit the Second World before reaching the Third World. And that takes more research. I mean, the trip to Mars took years of research. So I do believe that we do have to visit the Second World first."

No questions were asked from the audience after that. Bush continued on with his campaign speech, focusing on "global cooling."

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