Jubilant Crowd Dismantles Statue of Bush

San Francisco Residents Topple George W. Bush, Symbol of Oppression

SAN FRANCISCO, APRIL 12 — In a visual moment that will go down in history, a jubilant San Francisco crowd toppled a statue of George W. Bush, a symbol of the illegitimate regime that had long oppressed the American people. Emboldened by the arrival of a massive, unarmed pro-peace force, a celebrant crowd of Americans beheaded a toppled statue of George W. Bush, which towered over the Civic Center Plaza of San Francisco.

“We stood in the oppressive shadow of that monument, held fast by its cruel gaze and menacing sneer, ever since its erection earlier this morning,” reported one American brandishing a sledge hammer, “Now the peace marchers are here, and the ones who speak English are promising us that our liberation is at hand.” A crowd of Americans dragged the statue’s massive head through the city streets. “It’s ironic that we so feared this figurehead of totalitarianism,” observed one jubilant American, “the head is completely hollow after all.”

The crowd succeeded in destroying the likeness of their unpopular, un-elected ruler at approximately 11:14 AM Saturday morning. They spent the remainder of the day in close proximity to the gathering peace forces, likely fearful of retribution at the hands of pockets of resistance still loyal to the Bush regime.

“We understand that this is just a symbol,” said American Alex Brusht, “though inevitable, the long hard work of regime change in this country is still ahead of us.”
