WASHINGTON DC – Americans awoke on Tuesday morning to discover that their nation has entered into World War III as a result of an April Fool’s joke that went too far.
The situation began on Monday morning when a senior staffer decided to play an April Fool’s Day joke on President Obama by slipping in some fake information into the morning security briefing. Unfortunately the senior staffer was sent to work on other tasks before he could inform the President about the prank. After President Obama read the fake security report, the wheels were in motion.
Once President Obama read the report that indicated that Norway possesses a stockpile of nuclear warheads aimed at Washington D.C. and that the Scandinavian nation has been working closely with Al Qaeda, the President immediately called a meeting of his security council. Within hours, American armed forces were deployed to Northern Europe and an air assault began over Oslo.
Shortly thereafter, European Union President Jose Manuel Barroso declared the unprovoked United States attack as “brutality at its highest degree. We have declared war on the United States and will not stop until we can assure that their demon presence has been eliminated.”
Late last night after leaving work, the senior staffer remembered that he forgot to inform the President about the joke. He decided to just tell the President at another time, thinking to himself that “it probably won’t turn into anything.”
