The Thor on terror
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Toronto-- A group calling itself the Sons of Thunder claimed responsibility today for the lightning strike on Air France Flight 358, which landed in a massive plume of smoke at Pearson International Airport yet amazingly without loss of a single life.
"The Mighty Thor is displeased by terrorist efforts affecting innocent human lives," said the prepared statement. "He believes political points are best made by the destruction of capitalist property and the inconveniencing of traffic on the 401, rather than by human carnage."
United States authorities reacted by immediately banning the import, sale and possession of hammers. Efforts were also reportedly under way to change the name of the fourth day of the workweek to "Freedomday" to minimize support for the Norse god who clearly hates America.
Presidential spokesman Karl Rove blamed the incident on Canadian support of gay marriage and on the lack of French support for America's foreign policy agenda. Senate majority leader Bill Frist observed videos of the plane landing and immediately concluded that the evacuated plane could have smoldered indefinitely had it not been deprived of oxygen by Canadian efforts to smother the flames with foam.
Me: Sons of Zeus might have been more appropriate, but then we'd have to ban all Dr. Seus books for the dyslexic. I'd much rather get rid of Thur'sday and have Friday come that much sooner.
