Statuatorily Speaking

A weary, stony Abe Lincoln slumps as he reads a newspaper, slowly speaking over his shoulder towards the statue of Liberty.

Abe: “Libby, will you please wash those boys’ mouths out with some good American soap?”

Fatboys in shorts crowd around her, spewing truly deranged slogans:

Fatboys: “Don’t listen to Father Abe! - Obama's a Communist!, Obama's Hitler!”; “Gov’mint wants to kill the soldiers”; “Gov’mint wants to kill the old”; “Abortion leads to euthanasia.”

Liberty quickly fills an enormous tin-tub with boiling water, foaming up pink liquid soap. Raving Fatboys suddenly scatter fast.
