Meteorologists Predict Unusually Depressing Winter

Meteorologists across the United States are reporting that this winter is going to be more depressing and disappointing than usual, and could potentially be the most melancholic winter in recorded history.

“We’ve been tracking all sorts of trends,” says Dan Grenowitz, a meteorologist with the National Weather Institute. “By our estimates, this is shaping up to be the saddest, loneliness winter we’ve ever seen.”

Grenowitz says that much of the nation can expect to face record low levels of self-esteem over the next few months, while other areas can expect up to five inches of malaise every week. He recommends that cities start preparing for unprecedented downfalls of woeful dread that could hit as early as mid-November.

“We might even start seeing sadness in parts of the country that almost never get sad,” says Grenowitz, “but the global climate is shifting, and winters in America are just going to keep getting more and more sorrowful as the years go on.”

Many Americans are gearing up as best as they can for an unusually despondent winter, but many still haven’t recovered from last year’s record-breaking ennui.

“I can’t even imagine a winter more depressing than last year,” says Mercedes Plaith, a Pennsylvania native whose house was damaged last winter by a devastating amount of misery and despair. “We just finished redoing the roof from all the dreariness we got last February, and now they’re saying it’s going to be even worse this year. Someone needs to do something.”

Grenowitz says that the National Weather Institute is trying to develop new methods for detecting dread and despair that will give locals more time to prepare and evacuate in the event of an oncoming melancholy.

“We’re still years away from where we need to be, in terms of detection,” says Grenowitz. “Even my therapist says we should just give up trying.”

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 Quizzed On American Facts

Last week, a photograph of President Trump coloring a blue stripe on the American flag raised questions about how much the President knows about the country he leads. Over the next few days, a rogue group of White House staffers began secretly testing the President on American history and geography. Circus Killer News got an exclusive look at these tests.

“We figured out that the best way to test him without his knowledge was to make a game out of it,” said an anonymous White House insider. “We usually give him a blank paper placemat and crayons with the ten McDonald’s Happy Meals that he gets for dinner each night, but he always plays with the toys. This time, printed out a placemat of our own. We got him to use it by removing the toys inside each of his Happy Meals, and telling him that Hillary Clinton stole them.”

The placemat had a blank map of the United States, images of famous landmarks, and some basic trivia questions. On the US map, Trump was asked to draw in the state borders and label each state. Trump’s doodlings produced only 36 states, and he was able to identify only 15 of them. Many of the states that the President could not name were labeled as “the one where they all love me.”

The President then had to write out the significance of a handful of historic US landmarks. He said that the Statue of Liberty “was put there by the feminists who hate me because they are ugly.” He said of Mount Rushmore, “it honors presidents who made money and are on the money, and I have more money than they ever did.” His comments on the Washington Monument are too vulgar to publish.

Lastly, President Trump had to answer a few simple questions about the founding of the United States. His scribblings were hardly legible, but from what the staffers could make out, Trump seems to think that America was founded 2018 years ago, that Abraham Lincoln was the first president, and that the colonists gained their independence from Mexico.

The White House staffers who designed the test have not begun using the results to change anything, but they have begun drinking heavily.

Body Cams Becoming Increasingly Popular Among Nation’s Drunks

Body cameras were in the news years ago when they were believed to be the solution to the rampant police brutality seen across the United States. Now, they’re back in the news after a recent study revealed that body cams have become popular among America’s drunks, who don the devices before a night out in order to counteract the effects of blackouts.

“I go out with my buddies every night,” says construction worker Sean Rabe, “and almost every morning my face stings and I can’t remember why. Thanks to my body cam, I now know it’s because I get slapped by nearly 200 women every night after I drunkenly hit on them.”

So far there have been no recorded incidents where a body cam has prevented illegal, dangerous, or offensive behavior among drunken Americans. They have only been used to fill in memory gaps and allow drunkards to witness the happiest moments of their lives.

“I always wondered why I wake up in hospitals after every time I drink too much,” says Paola Routh, a stay-at-home mom and longtime user of recreational surveillance equipment. “I thought I was getting into some serious medical trouble each night, but it turns out drunk me just really likes flirting with the terminally ill.”

Most of these body cams are produced by Alcozone, a company that manufacturers other products for the habitual imbiber in your home. These products include a portable stomach pump called SmartGut, a drunk speech translator, and white noise machine that plays the sounds of a high school football game so that you can relive your glory days as you sit in a darkened room alone.

“I think it’s a great idea,” says police officer Vaughn McMichaels. “Between my job as a cop, my night life as a drunk, and my wife who’s into that sort of thing in our lovemaking, I’m cam’d up pretty much every minute of my life. And I’m loving it.”

You can buy your own drunk body cam anywhere electronics are sold.
