Following today’s inauguration of Barack Obama, former President Bush has announced plans to join a circus and become a clown in his retirement.
“If there’s one thing I’ve learnt from my Presidentialism… being President… it’s that I can make people laugh. I think being a clown is the perfect career for me,” Mr. Bush said this morning.
He hopes to use his former Presidential status to accelerate his acceptance into the world’s top clown school, Laughy McLaugherton’s, which has produced some famous (and infamous) stars: Bozo, Pennywise, The Joker, and most horrifically, Ronald McDonald.
President Obama wished him well on his future endeavours: “I guess that job would suit him, wouldn’t it? I wish him the best of luck while I’m busy cleaning up the mess he’s made, and I’m not talking about the war; I’m talking about the bathroom.”
After his clown training, we believe that Mr. Bush intends to travel to Gotham City and ‘Chill the hatman’. We do not know who this ‘hatman’ is or why Mr. Bush wishes to ‘chill’ him.
Mr. Bush leaves for Laughy McLaugherton’s tonight on the Hogsnorts Express.
