Finally Loses It
of State Suffers Catastrophic Breakdown, Performs "YMCA"
the end of an annual security meeting in Jakarta, Indonesia, U.S.
Secretary of State Colin Powell donned a yellow hardhat and belted
out a version of the Village People's classic "YMCA", singing
and dancing along with other U.S. officials dressed up to represent
other members of the band.
although it is "tradition" that the annual meeting be concluded
with singing and dancing from foreign diplomats, sources close to
Powell claim that tradition had nothing to do with the "gruesome,
don't think Colin knew anything about the tradition," said one
anonymous friend. "He snapped. He would've gone right on singing
and dancing no matter if it was at this meeting or a White House press
that Powell's performance had nothing to do with tradition were further
validated by his actions after the song concluded, when he placed
a portion of turkey from the dinner table on his head and announced
he was "Lex Luther, Queen of the Shit."

looked nervously at their
feet. "Don't tell me what to say, I'll eat a paper clip and skin
ambassador said that he was unsure if Powell's "bizarre"
behavior was "some kind of American custom".
kept my interest and composure through the song and dance, and even
the swearing," the ambassador said. "But when Mr. Powell
created what he called a 'war plan' out of cranberry sauce and then
rolled around in it, sobbing uncontrollably, I began to wonder if
perhaps his behavior was abnormal, even for an American."
the allegations that Powell has lost his sanity are not just based
on his performance at the meeting; they are corroborated by insider
reports that he has had a difficult time saying and doing many of
the duties requested of him by the Bush administration due to their
Colin refusing to read some of a speech to the UN security council
due to him doubting its validity -- he even called it 'bullshit,’
if I remember correctly -- to reports of him being despondent about
being removed from the war plan for Iraq, Powell has just not been
a happy guy these past four years," the source said. "There's
only so much a guy can take, and I think Colin's had about that amount."
a relative moderate in the face of such an ideological administration
must be a really difficult strain," added another friend of Powell's.
"If I had to go to work every day with Dick Cheney and George
W. Bush and have them try to get me to say things I didn't want to...well,
heck, I think I would smear a little pudding over my cheeks and arms
and dance around for a while, too."
although suspicions of Powell's growing madness were present, few,
if any, of his friends expected his eventual mental breakdown to be
so severe, and at such an inopportune time.
kind of expected him to just start crying on his wife's shoulder at
some point at home, or something like that," said a friend. "I
really never would've guessed he would begin singing an old Village
People song at a security meeting in Asia. That's just really strange."
wonder if this means he's gay, since pretty much all the Village People
were supposed to be pretty gay," pondered another close friend
to Powell. "I guess that would be just another trouble spot between
him and the rest of the Bush administration."
an interview following the scene at the meeting, however, Powell strongly
denied any homosexuality or "any other form of craziness".
fine, and I'd like to strongly reaffirm my allegiance to the Bush...to
the Bush...oh fuck me in the fuck, I can't say this shit!"

cameraman with it. "I'm crazy, they're crazy...WE'RE ALL
