Republicans vow to block Eric Holder’s resignation, announce lawsuit

Republican leadership issued a statement this morning which revealed plans to obstruct the resignation of Attorney General Eric Holder.

Eric Holder“This is just another example in a long list of where the current administration is in the wrong,” said House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), “there are checks and balances, and we intend to make sure they remain.”

Boehner announced his party would be suing the administration on the grounds that Republican opposition to Obama’s administration and its policies has become the single pillar of the GOP party, and a policy action which they agree with will damage the brand which they have built for themselves, and thus do them monetary harm.

“We can’t possibly afford to obediently accept the resignation of Mr. Holder,” Boehner said, “and this is a position which you’ve put us in. Thanks, Obama.”

California unveils nation’s first “all-natural” lethal injection

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.”

avocadoA 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

Newly orphaned 11-year-old Palestinian completely understands why his family had to die

flagKhalid 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.”

National Hurricane Center announces new naming system

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.

crystal pepsiThe 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.
