HOLLYWOOD, CA - Media and Hollywood liberals have replaced the handshake with the more time-consuming gesture of teabagging. According to participants, this practice began last November as a way of showing post-Prop 8 solidarity with Gays. Previously unknown to the public, teabagging leaked out during media discussion of tax day demonstrations. Said NPR producer Jenn Langemark, "That's why people like Anderson Cooper and Rachel Maddow were so tickled. They'd been teabagging for months, and suddenly these right-wingers start talking tea parties. It was way too funny." Not everyone is pleased with the new practice. Said one anonymous ABC writer: "After awhile, you stop wanting to meet people. Or go to parties, since saying 'hello' and 'good-bye' can take up to ninety minutes. I sure wish we'd found a different colored ribbon instead."
