A Write Good!: The News report — “All the story, plus lies!”

(WriteGood!WireServices) Days after SeaWorld announced it will stop breeding killer whales and cease theatrical shows featuring them, the theme park has quietly begun deporting its resident population of orcas.

GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump hailed the move, claiming, as he often does at campaign rallies, that orcas are “a pack of job-stealing illegal immigrant fish.”

SeaWorld was quick to refute Trump’s assertion, calling him “misinformed.”

“They aren’t fish, okay? And they swim in pods, not packs,” said SeaWorld Director of Public Apologies Rocky “Aquaman” Butane.

“Oh, and whose jobs are performing orcas ‘stealing’? Actors? What professional actor is willing to put on an orca suit, swim for hours, and leap in the air just for a chunk of frozen squid? Besides Nicholas Cage, I mean.”

Killer whales forced to flee SeaWorld leave behind irreplaceable family photos, home furnishings, and a fortune in krill.

However, Trump on the campaign trail continued to take credit for the mass exiles, telling supporters, “These deportations are just the beginning.”

“I gotta tell you, folks, they’re not just killer whales,” Trump said. “A lot of them are drug dealer whales and rapist whales.

“And the media’s so scared, they won’t say a word. Just like they don’t talk about illegal jellyfish, who they’re too politically correct to call Portuguese Man-of-Wars.

“Well, here’s some news, folks. My first day as president, all these Portuguese Man-of-Wars – gone! Back to Spain, along with their fat, ugly Portuguese Woman-of-Wars wives!”

Asked if Trump’s comments were further splintering an already disjointed GOP, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus claimed he would not respond until he and his family were safely aboard their intergalactic escape ship and outside the orbit of Saturn.

A Write Good!: The News report — “All the story, plus lies!

(DES MOINES) An animal welfare group responsible for spilling red paint on a butter cow sculpture at the Iowa State Fair is threatening to intensify their attacks until a fearful public shakes its head in annoyance and mutters, “Well, I never!”

“You have forced our hand and now butter must suffer!” read a news release from the Iowans for Animal Liberation that claimed responsibility for the vandalism. “Sorry! Enjoy the rest of the fair.”

The cow, which is constructed of 600 pounds of butter over a wood and metal armature, is housed in the fair’s refrigerated room with other butter sculptures. To gain access to the display, the animal welfare activists hid in the Agriculture Building disguised as beets.

The butter was quickly patched and paint damage to the sculpture was repaired through an art restoration process described as “wiping it off.”

The words “Freedom for all” were scrawled on a display window – part of a “wake-up call” to those who consume animal products, the news release explained.

“We really argued about that wording,” noted the statement. “Ernie and Celeste were insisting on ‘Stop me before I sauté again!’ We couldn’t tell if they were kidding because, we are told, we have no sense of humor.”

Animal welfare activists plan protests of lab-grown meat once they figure out which part is the animal.

The Iowans for Animal Liberation have threatened to embolden their stance through the future protests of their international organization, the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. That organization’s next target will be the recently unveiled laboratory-grown beef developed by Dutch scientists who hope one day to alleviate world hunger.

“We’re gonna kick the shit out of that one just as soon as we figure out why it’s wrong,” said activists.
