Devoted Flock To Boston

BOSTON (AFOL) - Tens of thousands of faithful pilgrims converged on Boston, Massachusetts this week for a glimpse of a grease stain on the bottom of a pizza box that some are calling “a true Democratic miracle.”

The stain, left over from an office party snack, is at the bottom of a box of pizza ordered from Halfwit Pizzeria. A casual remark from a co-worker that the stain “looks a little like Kerry” made Frank Lehaye look twice. After he posted the photo on his weblog, the comments and email started pouring in.

“They wanted to know where I live and whether they could come and ‘view’ the pizza box.” says Lehaye. “After they started showing up at the office, we had to move the box to a conference room.”

Since the beginning of the week, around 20,000 people including Democratic party faithful and media covering the event have streamed into Boston to camp outside of Leyahe’s office. The hope of every pilgrim is to catch a glimpse of this amazing sight, which they take to be a sign from God that change is in the air and George W. Bush is on his way out of office.

“Our prayers have been answered.” said one young woman wearing a Kerry for President button. “Soon our long national nightmare will be over. It is written in pizza grease!”

When asked what he thought of the excitement, Lahaye said “I can’t believe all these people came to Boston just for this. It doesn’t even look like Kerry. It looks more blotchy, like Bill O’Reilly. And the pizza tasted like cardboard.”

I think it looks like the Virgin Mary. You'd see it too if you weren't such an ungodly bunch of heathens.
