Constitution to Move From Naitonal Archives to Smithsonian

In the face of those pesky questions about the constitutionality of current legislation, Congressional leaders will proposing legislation to put the Consitution where it belongs.

Along with the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights, the Constitution will be removed from the Rotunda for the Charters of Freedom in the National Archives and placed in the Smithsonian Natural History Museum.

"With it's negative liberties," Nancy Pelosi was heard to say, "It places too firm a restriction on what we would like to do.  It hasn't been truly relevant for years so it's relegation to the Smithsonian is appropriate."  When asked about the Constitutionality of removing the Constitution, all she could say was, "You're kidding, right?"

There is no current information on what will replace the founding documents in the Rotunda for Freedom, but Harry Reid was heard to suggest that the New Deals could take it's place.  The plural usages of the new deal has us questioning just what will be in the new documents placed in the rotunda.  Another Congressman suggested that it be turned into a gift shop / Starbucks, and yet another suggested that it house Obama's birth certificate and college entrance forms; if they could be located that is.

The Smithsonian spokesperson stated that they are glad to have another priceless piece of American memorabelia under their care.


  1. Rumor is that Obama's next move is to, in 2012, move all the documents to an IHOP in Falls Church.

  2. And then have the reading of them outlawed.
