image for U.S. Finally Hears Of British Elections
God Save The President (or whatever.)

New York, NY - Yes, even here in this busy epicenter of the universe, as happens every few years or so, (or how ever you people do it over there,) New Yorkers collectively learn that Britain, otherwise known as England, is currently holding elections for their President, (or whatever you people call it.)

Once again, as is the invariable custom in America, we all sit around and watch this news flash across the screen in the wink of an eye; and once again, we turn to the fat American sitting in the closet Lay-Z-Boy and have the same discussion that we've had many times before: 'I thought the Queen ran the government in England -- why do they have elections?'

But then, before we've come up with a reasonable enough answer, the new station will always switch away to a freeway chase in progress, or a good school shooting, or something way more important - and we never do find out who would become your next king,(or whatever) until Michelle goes over to their house in a fancy dress, by a designer that no one has ever heard of... just like your 'President' guy.

Well, who ever you are - see you at the G8! (Are you guys a part of that?)

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