America dodged a catastrophe Monday when a Defense Department truck that was traveling with President Obama in Virginia was stolen. The truck contained the Presidential Seal, $200,000 in communications equipment and Obama’s famous TelePrompter.  It’s the one he takes everywhere, and that’s even specially rigged to retract to the ground so TV cameras won’t catch it after speeches. The truck was later found abandoned in a Holiday Inn parking lot in Richmond.   

- While it was missing, all US military personal worldwide were put on alert!  

- The people from PETA are demanding to know what a harmless, endangered “Presidential Seal” was doing locked inside a truck!

- When asked how the President felt about the theft, White House staffers said he had “no comment”.  

- It’s the biggest crisis at the White House since someone stole the “Bill Clinton Slept Here” sign.
