WH Jester Beheaded For Making Fun Of Soaring National Debt
After serving 12 years in the position, Motley, the official White House Jester, was beheaded Tuesday after delivering a poorly received jape about the spiraling national debt before President and Mrs. Obama.(from theonion.com)
"For crimes of great arrogance and cheek, His Idiocy the White House Jester has been sentenced to a swift demise," White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said following the death sentence. "Let it be heard over every city and suburb of this land that the National Debt is no topic for frivolity, and the mailed hand of Obama shall smite all offenders."
Motley, who used his last words to beg in vain for Obama's mercy, was executed on the North Lawn at the strike of noon.
Motley humors the First Family with a slapstick routine burlesquing foreign intelligence agents.
