Supreme Court Just Kidding,
Reverses Decision

By Brian Briggs

Washington D.C. - The Supreme Court reversed their decision to stop the recounts in Florida saying their original ruling was "just a joke."   The recounts have restarted and the winner of the election is once again in doubt.   According to sources close to the Justices, Justice O'Connor was supposed to tell everyone it was a practical joke before the concession speech was made, but in her words "better late than never."

Supreme Court"That Clarence [Thomas] is such a practical joker, it was his idea.  You should see what he can do with a Coke can," said Justice David Souter.  "Ruthy [Ginsburg] was a little pissed, but us guys got a kick out of it."

This is the second time the Supreme Court has reversed a ruling as a practical joke.   The first time was in 1992 when they threw out Roe vs. Wade as unconstitutional, then reinstated it just to piss off Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell. Many believe that the Supreme Court is hurting its reputation with stunts like this.  Chief Justice William Rehnquist said, "Everybody just needs to lighten up a little bit.  Can't the Supreme Court have a little fun every once in a while?"

"We conservatives are for state's rights and we decided against them in this case. Didn't anybody figure out that we were just messing with Gore?" said Antonin Scalia.   "You should've seen Bush's face when we told him.  I wish someone had brought a camera."

Al Gore could not be reached for immediate comment, but loud moans could be heard coming from the Vice Presidential mansion.
