NCLB Outrages

Margaret Spellings walked into a(nother) bar

by Flip Jones

Margaret Spellings walked into a bar, and the bartender, noticing she had no gluteus maximus muscles at all, asked her about it.

Spellings replied: "Oh, I must have left my behind behind again!"

Margaret Spellings walked into a bar. She overindulged a bit and let the cat right out of the bag, announcing to the assembled, "NCLB is 99.9% corporate-serving BS, and it's working. Ask $andy Kre$$."

Margaret Spellings walked into a bar.

The barkeep sighed with relief. "At least she's not going to give another speech about 'razing the bar.'"

Ted Kennedy and Margaret Spellings were spotted yesterday evening walking into a bar on Capitol Hill. Spellings was dressed in her standard sunglasses and matador's cape over red stretch pants. Kennedy was dressed in his standard red tie, and white shirt. They both walked up to the bar and eyed the list of international beers: Irish beers, German beers, Mexican beers.

In unison, they both slammed their fists down on the bar and snarled, "Where are the standard beers?"

Unperturbed, the bartender placed empty glasses in front of the pair.

Wouldn't you have thought one of them would have noticed it there?
