Nation Asks Permission To Stop Watching Olympics Now

WASHINGTON—The people of the United States of America issued a formal request Monday, seeking permission to stop watching the 2008 Summer Olympic Games. "We have dutifully watched segments of the XXIX Olympiad for at least two hours a day for nearly two consecutive weeks, including aquatic events, track and field, and even stupid stuff such as synchronized diving, and while we fully and openly admit that we have enjoyed far more than we had initially expected, we must reiterate—it has been two weeks," the appeal drafted by the U.S. populace read in part. "Can we please stop now?" The 300 million U.S. citizens said they would be sitting here watching women's beach volleyball until they receive official word that it's okay to switch to a rerun of Grey's Anatomy.
