image for Bush Autobiography Rejected By Publisher
Leslie Found The Book Unreadable But Did Like The Fact You Could Color In The Pictures.

The finished draft of former Presidents Bush's autobiography was rejected by the publishing house that offered him several million dollars for it. The manuscript was sent back to him for reworking.

A spokesman from the publisher commented: "There were just too many spelling and grammatical errors. It appears that Mr. Bush burned out the automatic correction on five computers just getting it to the state we got it in. We went back to his original hand written document, but it was in crayon which was just unacceptable. Fortunately he did use colored magic markers for the pictures which are easier to work with. We've hired on a special translator from Crawford, Texas familiar with Bush's grammatical idiosyncrasies to help us try to wade through it."

The publisher is also concerned that the major part of the book deals with social functions that the President attended and very little with governmental issues and foreign dealings. The entire Iraqi war is summed up in his jet landing on the aircraft carrier in the famous 'Mission Accomplished' brouhaha. Also the chapter admitting that his secret identity was really Iron Man raised some eyebrows.

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