View Full Version : George W Bush: The Mallrat
27th July 2009, 10:50 AM
So what do I wake up to this morning, George W Bush spending retirement for the most part, like I spent much of my youth: at the mall. Put down whatever you are drinking before reading this. Assuming it's true, it's beyond Colbert (http://open.salon.com/blog/km_breay/2009/07/27/bush_frequent_presence_at_shopping_mall).

Sure sounds about right.

Not true (obviously), but I did like this part:
Nestor Martinez, a 20-year-old mall security guard, confirmed that on at least two occasions he’s had to speak to the former president about his behavior. “We started getting complaints that he was hanging out in the men’s room asking guys if they wanted to have their picture taken with him,” said Mr. Martinez. “When I told him to stop he said, ‘let’s go sort it out over a game of Donkey Kong.’ So after my shift we went over to the arcade and I beat him in a best of three. Then he got all pissed off and said he’d take up the bathroom thing with my boss.”
What's just totally insane is that Bush IS more likely to be hanging out at a suburban mall rather than sitting in the Hague.

This cannot be real. It's funny, though.

Obvious parody.Obviously. No way Bush loses two out of three in Donkey Kong. My word, the guy's been practicing non-stop for years.

Funnier is after reading it in it's entirety, I took it completely at face value. It was on the front page of Salon, and only after attempting to source it realized it was satire. ;)
