New Orleans,LA (APE) – President Bush yesterday became enraged over a practical joke played upon him by a staffer aboard Air Force One. White House spokespersons are remaining closed mouthed about the incident. Bush reportedly has stated that he will be conducting an investigation himself and will get to the bottom of it. The incident occurred as he was in route from Washington, DC to the flood ravaged city of New Orleans.
APE obtained a digital photograph of the incident smuggled out by an un-named inside source at great professional and personal risk.

In the picture, apparently one of the President’s aides has used a neon orange highlighter pen to scribble a rescue/damage assessment upon his forehead. The terminology would indicate that Bush had been assessed on 09-12-05 by a K.R., who found that no one was home, and the structure was condemned.

Bush apparently became very enraged after staffers failed to inform him of the joke, and he was seen in public on a damage assessment tour with Louisiana Governor Kathleen Babineaux Blanco, and New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, with the scribbling on his forehead. It was quickly washed off with bottled water after the governor and mayor pointed it out.

Bush later toured the flooded city on a military style flatbed truck with the mayor and governor. He was seen having members of his contingent rescuing expensive electronics from stores, shops, and homes along the way. White House spokesperson Scott McClellan stated,” The White House is proud to be doing its part in the restoration of order to New Orleans, and protecting homes and businesses from the scourge of looters.”
