US capital to be converted from Washington DC to AC
The United States Government has announced ambitious plans to change the name of their capital to Washington AC keeping it in line with their present alternating political system.
‘What with the shift in policy every few years and continual change in ideas we thought the DC adage inappropriate’ explained Susan Gorlumy, head of the latest think tank. ‘We thought our capital should reflect the constant switching back and forth of political ideas.’
The change of name has been a contentious issue, with many politicians hedging their bets and arguing that that capital should instead be renamed Washington AC/DC, enabling the government to switch from one to the other. However this was rejected by the Senate, fearing a backlash from neo-conservatives over associations with the bisexual community.Click to send this story to a friend
