California Governor Jerry Brown announced today that future death row inmates will be lethally injected using a blend of all-natural, GMO-free superfoods.
Clinching a lusciously-ripe, halved avocado in his left hand, Brown proclaimed “we in the great state of California are prepared to put the days of ending prisoner’s lives with toxic, unnatural chemicals behind us.”
A press release from Trader Joe’s, the maker of the state’s new lethal injection says the injection is “guaranteed to be all-natural, GMO-free, and gluten-free.”
Brown said the prisoners would first be induced into a natural state of unconsciousness using 20 mg of melatonin and repeated blows to the cranium.
An environmentally friendly composting plan was also announced for the remains of the executed prisoners.
The move comes in response to a recent federal district judge’s decision that California’s death penalty was in violation of the 8th amendment’s protection against cruel and unusual punishment.
Other states have also been moving to try different methods of execution.
Alabama recently announced a plan to have all of its death row inmates executed by its Chief Justice Roy Moore with stone replicas of the Ten Commandments
Khalid Hadawi, an 11 year old whose apartment was destroyed by Israeli Defense Force munitions, said he completely understands why his whole family had to die and that the event will certainly not be the basis for severe emotional trauma or hatred for Israel.
In a press release, a blood-and-tear-soaked Hadawi said:
“Hey, how can I blame Israel? They were nice enough to drop leaflets telling us to evacuate the safety of our home into a city that is currently under bombardment. It’s obviously my family’s fault. I’m definitely not going to be emotionally traumatized and develop a hatred for Israel deeply rooted in the ashes of my home and the blood of my slain family members.That would just be irrational! I mean, who does that? I don’t want to be that guy.”
The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has developed a new name system that aims to alert threatened populations to the severity of approaching hurricanes, according to a press release from the National Hurricane Center.
The name system is the result of a recent study that determined that people are less threatened to prepare by hurricanes with female names, and, as a result, hurricanes with female names result in more casualties.
The new “two-name” naming system works by giving a storm a more threatening name when it grows in strength.
According to a Skip Stormyson, a spokesman for the WMO, the addition of safe “tame” names has opened up a marketable venue.
“We tried selling storm names before in the early 90s, but it was a colossal failure when Hurricane ‘Crystal Pepsi’ claimed several hundred lives along the gulf coast,” Stormyson said.
In what can only be described as divine aberration, Massachusetts is set to successfully defy the wrath of God for ten consecutive years.
Saturday, May 17 will mark the 10-year anniversary of same-sex marriage in the state.
Not only have all of God’s attempts to inflict moral retribution upon the state been viciously blocked by Boston Bruins Goalie Tuukka Rask, but the state as a whole has managed to resist the temptation to slide down the slippery slope of incest and bestiality.
Mass. Governor Duval Patrick said the avoidance of legalizing bestiality and incest in the wake of same-sex marriage was easier than it appeared from the outside.
“There was a moment during the congressional black mass, following the legalization of same-sex marriage, where the issue of legalizing a great number of unholy unions was discussed,” said Patrick. “But it was pretty obvious to everyone that if our dark plans of national soul corruption were to succeed that we needed to play it cool.
This is exactly what we’ve been doing for the last ten years. It’s no coincidence Massachussetts has the lowest divorce rate in the nation, and is consistently among the top in education and social mobility. It takes a lot of looking good to convince America to be oh so bad, ya know what I’m saying? HAHAHA! This is off the record, right?”
During their meeting this week, President Obama ordered Pope Francis to purchase a health care plan that covers abortions, according to a high-level source in the administration.
Interestingly, abortion was the only service that this health care plan covered
“At first the Pope was having none of it,” said the anonymous source. “But after a little convincing, Francis just kind of shrugs it off, solemnly nods and is all like, ‘Sure, whatever, ‘when in Rome”
