SECOND POST – JULY 12, 2012 – MERCURY NEWS CENTER HEADQUARTERS BESIEGED EARLIER BY MOBS DEMANDING HILLARY CLINTON’S INCLUSION AS “DUFUS” OF THE YEAR. GOVERNING BOARD RESPONDS.
MNS Special coverage. Carmen Fistula reporting.
Huge throngs assembled outside MNS HQ at 86th and Loquat Avenue in Manhattan to protest the exclusion of Hillary Clinton from the MNS Dufus of Year competition. Police had to use teargas to break up the mobs as anger reached levels of pandemonium unseen since 9/11.
They want Hillary and that’s it. They won’t take no for an answer and have questioned the sagacity of MNS Board of Governors in merely mentioning her as a “runner up”. Mob organizer Cletus Zeppelin screeched out to a responsive audience: “Who do we want?” The mob reacted with a ferocious “We want Hillary!”.
Hillary Clinton, seen here in Laos, answers a reporter’s question about what Monica Lewinsky looked like in the White House during her years as First Lady.
Board of Governors’ spokesperson, Odets Oliphant, responded to the crowd’s demand for Hillary’s inclusion by remarking pungently that “Mrs. Clinton will be reconsidered for inclusion as MNS Dufus of the Year during next month’s Special Plenary Session. We apologize for any inconvenience our decision may have caused our readers or the New York City Police Department. A position will be taken soon and announced.”
Oliphant’s message was received gingerly by the protesters with a warning from Mr. Zeppelin that: “If she ain’t then we’re comin’ back and it ain’t gonna be pretty.”
MNS will keep you informed.
