Wrong tower

The famous Leaning Tower of Pisa, one of the most visited and photographed buildings in the world, collapsed Tuesday morning. Fortunately, no one was hurt in the accident. The tower, in the province of Pisa in the Tuscany region of Italy, begin construction in 1173 and has stood for almost 835 years.

While no official reason was given for the collapse, world wide speculation centered on the following ideas:

"Global warming was to blame," said former U.S. Vice President Al Gore from his Tennessee home. "Back when I invented the Leaning Tower of Pisa, I told everyone that it would fall if the world continued using chloroflourocarbons!"

Rush Limbaugh was quick to blame new Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her "team of femi-nazis." "Nothing like this would have happened during the Reagan administration. Hillary had that building leaning farther to the left than it ever has."

Movie star Angelina Jolie blamed it on the shock and disgust by the building of people in the world not adopting enough African children.

U.S. President Barack Obama said that it fell due to "the prior administrations allowing this country to slip into the financial crisis that we are in today and the unneeded invasion of Iraq."

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair blamed it on the current Prime Minister for "not following through on the plans that I set in place for world stability by constantly kissed George W. Bush on the ass."

Half of the Arab world blamed it on Isreal, while the other half blamed it on The United State, home of the great Satan. Moslems worldwide retaliated by blowing up railroad and stations in 15 different suicide bombings.

North Korea blamed it on South Korea and threatened to take troops across the DMZ to seek vengeance and rectify the issue.

Civil engineers in Rome, however, said that the building "probably fell because we've been getting too much rain lately and the ground was too saturated with water."

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