From The Babylon Bee:
IRVINE, CA—Tragedy has struck once again. The entire men’s U.S. water polo team has drowned after kneeling during the national anthem in an exhibition game today, sources confirmed moments ago.
“Yes, this is a tragedy — but it’s also a victory for the social justice movement,” said the team’s coach in a somber press conference. “They couldn’t breathe and they took a knee — what powerful reminders of the injustices in this country.”
“MMMM!!!” said one polo player moments before his untimely demise. “MMM! MMM! MMMMMM!!!”
Analysts believe he was trying to scream “Black Lives Matter” before he succumbed to unconsciousness.
