WHITE HOUSE REPORTER TURNS OUT TO BE CHENEY
Fake Moustache Falls Off Veep During Press Briefing

The White House press corps was rocked by another scandal today as a man thought to be a professional journalist was revealed to be Vice President Dick Cheney wearing a fake moustache.

The shocking discovery took place during a daily briefing at the White House in which spokesman Scott McClellan took the following question from a reporter he referred to only as "Herb": "Wouldn't you agree that President Bush's plan for reforming Social Security totally rocks?"

Before Mr. McClellan could respond to the question, the reporter's moustache suddenly fell off his face, revealing him to be none other that Vice President Cheney.

Mr. Cheney, unaware that his disguise had fallen off and seemingly oblivious to the audible gasps of the journalists in the room, continued: "And wouldn't you agree that anyone who opposes it hates our country?"

After adding, "And isn't everything in Iraq going really well these days?" the vice president noticed that his fake moustache was on the carpet at his feet.

He then quickly excused himself and bolted out of the room.

Hours after the incident, the White House took great pains to explain Mr. Cheney's dual role as vice president of the United States and obsequious journalist.

"For the past three years, we have consistently stated that Vice President Cheney has been in a secure, undisclosed location," Mr. McClellan told reporters. "That location was, in fact, the White House press room."

Elsewhere, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said that she would not run for president in 2008 "unless the Democrats nominate somebody really easy again."
