In an obvious attempt to improve his dismal approval ratings, President Bush declared today that the Hundred Years War has come to an end.
"Mission accomplished", the president shouted to reporters in the White House rose garden. "This is a great day for France, Great Britain, the United States and the world. A century of conflict has come to an end and the world is a better place", the president said.
The Hundred Years War began in 1337 as a dispute over Gascony, an English controlled province in France, which was coming under increasing French control. The war ended with victory for the French in 1453.
