SPECIAL REPORT: Football

Every Sunday, millions of Americans flock to holy sites across the country to pray, sing songs, worship heroes, and pay fourteen dollars for a hotdog. It sounds a lot like church, but actually it’s a sport called “football,” and it’s as popular in America as Dooganwibble is in Great Britain.

Football has an interesting history that uncles across the United States know too much about. It started in the Depression Era when Americans needed a distraction from the woes of having to eat people’s shoes in order to survive. Impoverished hunks would saw off the foot of an unsuspecting stranger and then run through the streets with it until it was safe to remove the foot and boil the shoe. Police officers couldn’t afford bullets in those days, so they would tackle the foot thieves to the ground in order to stop them. Football evolved out of this tradition.

The game has changed a lot since its early days. Football is now played with an oblong leather ball called a “football.” The players of this sport are called “players,” and they play on a field that is a called a “football field.” Players have to get the ball into a zone at the end of the field, which is a region called the “end zone.”

Some of those terms might be a little too convoluted to understand, but the team names are far more memorable. Falcons, Seahawks, Eagles, Ravens, Cardinals… these are all the names of birds that have attacked me at a public swimming pool, but they are also the names of some of the teams that play this exciting sport. Some football teams have controversial names, such as the Redskins, which is a derogatory term for indigenous people; the Patriots, which is a derogatory term for Trump supporters; the Cowboys, which is a derogatory term for young men who lactate uncontrollably. Today’s politically correct culture has caused football viewership to decrease because of these offensive names, and now the games have been heavily censored.

Football is a dangerous sport, and players often sustain lifelong injuries by the end of their careers. This is what makes football so interesting, and the people in charge of the game have experimented with ways to bring even more harm to the players. There has been talk of installing landmines, sharks, cigarettes, and other dangerous elements into football fields across the country in order to make the game more exciting. Of course, the players are still cared for. All players injuries are healed at the end of each game by dunking them into a tub of a magical glowing liquid called “Gatorade,” which heals them almost instantly.

Football is as American as apple pie, coca-cola, or displacing a native population, and since the United States will exist until the end of time, so too will this wondrous and exciting sport.

Trump Suggests Declaring War On United Kingdom

On the morning of July 4th, 2017, US President Donald Trump made a tweet that seemed to allude to an upcoming war between America and the United Kingdom. The tweet came on the morning of America’s Day of Independence from the UK, and read:

“Still committed to Making America great again, like when we WON against weak low-ratings British. Great moment for US, will happn again!!”

While many Trump fans were quick to defend their lord and savior and pretend the tweet had no malevolent context, members of Trump’s inner-circle have confirmed that the President is looking to start some kind of a war.

“The President has wanted to lead the country through a war for months now,” said a white guy in a suit. “He’s been trying to choose the right country to start a war with ever since he first took office, but he hasn’t found the time to go through all his options due to his busy schedule of playing golf and doing what we tell him to do.”

The spokesman went on to say that the President may have already decided on which country he’ll go to war with, but he isn’t telling anybody.

“We know it’s going to be a country that America has already fought a war against,” continued the spokesman. “This tweet would suggest that England is the biggest contender, but I don’t think he’s ruled out the Germans, the Vietnamese, or the Native Americans.”

President Trump has also suggested in his tweets that he isn’t against using nuclear weapons in a war, tweeting:

“I’m a lot like Pres Harry Thurman b/c I will do whats right to end conflict and daughter Uma almost as hot as Ivanka.”

Americans will have to wait and see if a war between the US and the UK actually breaks out. Circus Killer News tried to send a team “across the pond” to see if the British were at all worried about a war, however the Trump travel ban and information embargo now includes every country in the world.
