China recently discovered that instead of putting a Communist Elder Bo Xilai on trial for corruption, they had actually prosecuted Bo Obama, the White House dog. China immediately released Bo and apologized to the president and his family.
Several prosecuting attorneys began to suspect a problem during the trial. One attorney, who asked to remain anonymous because he wasn't given permission to talk, said, "The whole trial was a dog and pony show. We were discussing this when it dawned on us -- that's Bo the Dog."
Chinese public defender Mi-no Wen used multiple defense strategies, including proposing DNA testing, fur analysis, veterinary dental records, and claims of diplomatic immunity for the First Dog.
When charges were dropped, Bo Obama wagged his tail in excitement. His publicists made a statement, "Bo is very pleased to be released. He was horrified at the thought of being placed under house arrest with Gu Kailai, Bo Xilai's wife. She's a crazy killer and doesn't believe in giving treats."
The Secret Service, INS, and China's immigration organization are all investigating how Bo entered China without the proper visa and an expired Kenyan passport.
After the mistaken identity was resolved, Chinese officials went searching for Bo Xilai. He was found sleeping in Buckingham Palace, near an air conditioning vent.
