April 1, 2022, Washington DC. In a joint statement, leadership from both major parties announced that they will put aside their differences and pursue an ambitious new goal: to improve conditions for the public.
“The time has come to put an end to our pointless bickering,” said a spokesperson. "We have a responsibility to the people, and we will meet that responsibility together.”
A representative from across the aisle added, “We agree wholeheartedly, and aren’t afraid to say it. We may not see eye to eye, but we are all public servants and therefore have a duty to work together and a common responsibility to make life better for the whole country.”
The two tearfully embraced as an eager crowd rose to their feet and applauded in approval.
Poet and playwright William Shakespeare responded to the surprising events by commenting “now I will believe that there are unicorns.”
