From The Babylon Bee:
SRI JAYAWARDENEPURA KOTTE — The Sri Lankan government’s sensible plan to become a green, climate-friendly utopia has experienced a slight hiccup after the nation’s 22 million citizens have run out of food, fuel, and hope.
Advised by green activists and intellectuals, the Sri Lankan President’s sprawling, vibrant agenda that included forced organic farming, massive debt to China, and skimming millions for personal gain — was actually quite successful for the first seven minutes.
After the Sri Lankan people noticed that they were, quite suddenly, without food or jobs or fuel or security, millions of them paid a personal visit to the presidential palace to recommend some slight changes to the president’s agenda.
At publishing time, liberals were reminding everyone that it was Capitalism’s fault.
