George Bush, Harry Potter, and Witches in Pointy Hats


In a surprise development, both George Bush and Harry Potter were sighted yesterday at Torrey Hills Elementary School.

They were there to voice their opposition to the precedent being set by the Puyallup school district in Washington state. George Bush also wanted to encourage people to vote this upcoming Tuesday and Harry Potter was trying to keep a low profile.

The protest rally drew a huge crowd of ninjas, ghosts, goblins, cheerleaders, brides, beauty queens, butterflies, fairy princesses, and Disney characters, all turned out to show their support for the right to celebrate Halloween, a day dedicated to everything sweet and sugary.


There were plenty of witches in pointy hats on hand who testified that they weren't trying to poke fun at Wiccans when they chose their costumes, they just wanted to look scary and attract more candy.

In the belief that you can never have too many parties or too much candy in a single day, after school the kids went to the home of Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf for yet another party dedicated to the consumption of candy.

There were many activities, including bobbing for apples, which presented quite a challenge for Harry Potter, who is currently missing both his front teeth.

We wrapped up the evening with a trip back to the school where we discovered that the school auditorium had been taken over by Scooby Doo, ghosts, goblins, and witches in pointy hats.

In blatant disrespect for our nation's president, the Republican party, and J. K. Rowling, we were accompanied by George Bush and Harry Potter.

Here's to the death of political correctness.
