Iowa hit by gay storm and swine flu

Up until recently the great state of Iowa was known only for its unending Presidential caucuses and endless porcine corpses. Haed politics and easy pork chops could very well have been the state motto.

That is until the State Supreme Court applied the live and let live philosophy of the midwestern farmer to the issue of gay marriage. Suddenly the Presidential caucus system seemed facile compared to the uproar caused by equal protection under the Iowa law.

While still swirling in the eye of the Supreme's storm, a pig-borne influenza epidemic hit the scene throwing Iowa into a cyclonic twister that could transport it near Oz. Iowans have clutched their spouses and pitchforks and lately have been known to be clicking their sensible shoe heels together and reciting the mantra: There's no place like Home.

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