and this is the parody. But like any good parody, and writing, there is much truth in metaphor.
A Pentagon spokesperson said skateboarding was the perfect sport for Iraqi youth. “These kids are angry, and want to rebel. We can sell them the image of rebellion. It is much better than that whole Islamo-fascist revenge thing being shoved down their throat now. Osama bin-Laden does not skate. We’ve got Tony Hawk.”
A new video game “Tony Hawk’s Green Zone” will be released to coincide with the opening of the park. Tony Hawk commented: “Imagine the first Iraqi kid to pop up over the lip of the half pipe and pull a 180 Ollie out and transition that into a front side grab before dropping back in on the pipe, his skate wheels gliding literally on the bones of those who sacrificed to provide him with this freedom…. The poetry of it gives me chills.” - Dennis Trainer jr
