Nome Lemuel entered the big white house and was ushered into the office of The Great Kenyan Father. ” Great Kenyan Father” he said” I must leave you.”
“How come?” asked the GKF.
“I go to take my place as the emeneffing mayor of emeneffing Chicago.” “Must you talk like that?” groused the GKF.
“Yes.” said Nome. “I was dropped on my head as a child, and ever since, it just comes out.”
“Oh, that’s alright then” said the GKF ” but you live here. It would be illegal.”
“In Chicago, they don’t sweat the small stuff.” said Nome. “And anyway, I have good friends there, judges and stuff.” “Then go with my blessing.” said the GKF and Nome went off.
The Great Kenyan Father watched the door close and began to whistle tunelessly. He turned to see his wife staring at him. “Have you gotten good news, then?” she asked.
“Yes.” said the GKF. “Nome has left us to conquer Chicago.”
