No Re-Runs or Re-Hides

A national sexual assault prevention group
Promoting Awareness Victim Empowerment


is calling for President Obama

to revoke Bill Cosby's
Presidential Medal of Freedom.

But Obama's eyes are bleary

and after a long pause
he says

"No I can't.

I can't do this again.

Give another solemn
yet righteously angry speech

expressing pathos and regret."

So now that Cosby
has been dropped by his talent agency

that would seem
to hurt his chances
of appearing on-screen indefinitely

until one man
known only as "V"

which is silent

because "'I' can sneak up on you


or more commonly
"Vice President Joe Biden"

assumes Obama's role
and becomes a

Very Important Prosecutor

in the blockbuster ass-kicking
of the summer

of that same name.
