President Bush Sells Louisiana Back to the French

President Bush and a giddy Jacques Chirac shake
hands on the deal.

BATON ROUGE, LA. - The White House announced today
that President Bush has successfully sold the state of
Louisiana back to the French at more than double its
original selling price of $11,250,000.

"This is a bold step forward for America," said
Bush. "And America will be stronger and better as a
result. I stand here today in unity with French Prime
Minister Jack Sharaq, who was so kind to accept my
offer of Louisiana in exchange for 25 million dollars

The state, ravaged by Hurricane Katrina, will cost
hundreds of billions of dollars to rebuild.

"Jack understands full well that this one's a
'fixer upper,'" said Bush. "He and the French people
are quite prepared to pump out all that water, and
make Louisiana a decent place to live again. And
they've got a lot of work to do.

But Jack's assured me, if it's not right, they're
going to fix it."

The move has been met with incredulity from the
beleaguered residents of Louisiana.

"Shuba-pie!" said New Orleans resident Willis
Babineaux. "Frafer-perly yum kom drabby sham!"

However, President Bush's decision has been widely
lauded by Republicans.

"This is an unexpected but brilliant move by the
President," said Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist.
"Instead of spending billions and billions, and
billions of dollars rebuilding the state of Louisiana,
we've just made 25 million dollars in pure profit."

"This is indeed a smart move," commented Fox News
analyst Brit Hume. "Not only have we stopped the
flooding in our own budget, we've made money on the
deal. Plus, when the god-awful French are done fixing
it up, we can easily invade and take it back again."

The money gained from 'The Louisiana Refund' is
expected to be immediately pumped into the rebuilding
of Iraq.
