Rendell Violates Own Emissions Standards After Eating Cheesesteak

leave a comment »

(HARRISBURG) – Approximately one hour after eating a cheesesteak, Governor Rendell today violated his administration’s new emissions standards that went into effect on January 1.

His office released a statement late this afternoon acknowledging that, shortly after lunch, Rendell unleashed a cloud of flatulence that triggered air pollution sensors outside the Governor’s Mansion.

“The governor regrets ordering extra onions, and pledges to never do it again,” said spokeswoman Kate Philips.

“Because the new smog emissions guidelines pertain solely to vehicles, the governor appears to be in the clear in terms of prosecution,” said Pennsylvania Environmental Protection Secretary Kathleen McGinty. “But,” she added, “it’s still a cause for concern.”
