Monument to Honor Brown, Ford and Hussein

Funny story written by Les Smith

Friday, 29 December 2006

For Immediate Release: (December 29, 2006); Barnwell, South Carolina Visitors and Convention Bureau has announced plans for a memorial statue to feature their native son abandoned by his parents there, James Brown; the former US President, Gerald Ford; and recently executed Iraqi Dictator, Saddam Hussein.

Timing near the seasons of Kwanzaa, Christmas, and the Hajj were the reasons given for immediate placement (in addition to the need to account for donated funds prior to January 1, 2007 for tax purposes).

The bronze-cast work will feature Brown in a classic dance pose, dropping to his knees with microphone stand in hand, while tripping up a clumsy Ford in step, and Hussein strung up by the neck in Southern tradition with Ford clenching the rope opposite the noose.

This new work of art will replace the obelisk and plaque naming fallen Confederate soldier Barnwellians in the middle of town square.

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