Congress has approved a plan to sell The Whitehouse to the Chinese as part of a deal aimed at easing the U.S. budget deficit.

The deal, thought to be worth in the region of $20 billion, will see The Whitehouse become a centre of Chinese culture with cinemas, theatres, restaurants, a gymnasium and a table tennis arena.

Also included in the deal is a "Preferential Trading Partner" clause. This will see China opening its doors to America's largest foreign currency earners such as McDonalds and KFC and, in return, they will start selling noodle dishes alongside their existing menus.

In an effort to lower U.S. carbon emissions a Chinese bicycle company is buying a disused Pittsburgh steelworks to use as a manufacturing plant. It is hoped that cheap bicycles help encourage Americans to switch from their gas-guzzling Cadillacs to pedal-power.

Dr. Aldo Miramblatter, a senior Whitehouse health advisor, added "As a nation we're way too fat. This deal should help."

The Chinese ambassador to the U.S., Mai Phatdong, said "This is a histolical moment."

Wow.. But if this did happen.. I'm pretty sure there would be.. MILLIONS of protests about it.

Would they be able to do this, even if 99% of Americans disagree?

What is so sad about this is that it is essentially true.

The Chinese ties and stuff don't bother me but selling a part of our history as a country does bother me...

The dog gone government can by some goofy bic pens for a meeting of the house and spend something totally outrageous for the ink pens that cost squat to buy, and I could have bought them myself & paid for them and delivered them for squat, compared to what they paid for 25 ink pens!!!! Tens of thousands of wasted dollars..Thats where there money is going flaunting it around like it grows on trees pay crazy expensive prices for things that should be dealt with just like we do... by what you need and don't be so bloody extravagant! Its a bloody pen for crying out loud not6 the hand of God!
