Change of Management
A short story by Wolf Larsen
I walked into McDonald's, and who should be there in front of me but former president George Bush dressed up as Ronald McDonald the clown!
"Welcome to McDonald's!" exclaimed George Bush the clown. As I stood there in surprise some little kids yelled out in glee, "A CLOWN! A CLOWN!" I watched George Bush play with the kids. "What a great clown!" I thought.
Then as I began walking up to the counter I was surprised by the sight of former vice-president Dick Cheney mopping the floor. "Hi Dick!" I blurted out as I waved.
"You're the dick!" responded the former vice-president in an angry voice.
And then I reached the counter. There was former president Barack Obama standing there before me on the other side of the counter. Obama first looked to the right and then to the left as he said, "May I take your order please?"
I followed Obama's eyes and realized he was reading off of two screens, one on either side of him.
While I was ordering my Big Mac I looked into the kitchen and with a big surprise I saw Bill and Hillary Clinton flipping hamburgers back there.
When I got my food I sat at a table near the window and began reading the newspaper as I ate. The headlines were: UNEMPLOYMENT RATE FALLS TO 0%, MINIMUM WAGE TO BE DOUBLED NEXT WEEK, PERMANENT MORATORIUM ON FORECLOSURES DECLARED, and NEW SURGEON GENERAL ANNOUNCES FREE QUALITY MEDICAL CARE FOR ALL.
Then I looked outside and saw Donald Trump, Warren Buffett, and Bill Gates dressed up as sanitation workers. They were picking up garbage off the ground.
I smiled. What a beautiful day!
