Washington D.C. to Become Theme Park

WASHINGTON D.C. – USA – Furloughed Federal workers will volunteer to work for free at the new proposed theme park that will populate the now empty streets of the capital city.

“I just need something to do, after my fifth barbeque of the week I’m frankly sick of the sight of burgers, weiners and coleslaw,” Avi Schweimer, a Pentagon official told NBC news.

The White House itself will be the grand entrance to the theme park, and the Senate will have a water slide installed. As for the Presidential Townhouse, that will have a rollercoaster going directly through it as will the Eccles building.

The cost of the remodelling work on the project will be an estimated $346 million and will naturally be funded by a small increase in Federal income taxation as well as eventual reciepts from the theme park itself.

“Maybe we might be able to claw back some of that debt huh. I think this is a great idea,” Senator Harry Reid said from his holiday chalet in Switzerland.

As for VP Joe Biden, he has already signed up to become a clown in the White House circus tent which will be housed in the Rose Garden.
