State Department Weighing Boy George

Who says foreign policy can’t be fun?!

An intrepid reporter this week asked State Department Deputy Spokesman Tom Casey on the very pressing matter of Boy George’s visa holdup.

Mr. George planned on coming to the States for a tour this summer, but the current investigation into his alleged kidnapping of a Norwegian hooker gave American officials pause.

And the world wants answers!

QUESTION: And what does the U.S. Government have against Boy George – (laughter) – You denied him a visa.

MR. CASEY: Sorry, I should have swallowed before you said that. (Laughter.) Let’s see if I spit the water over any place else. (Laughter.) I’ve seen the report that’s out there. Obviously, visa records are confidential. But I’d simply note that there often are difficulties for individuals who either are currently subject to criminal charges or otherwise may have criminal records. So I think you might want to look toward some of those reasons as why he might be having some difficulties here.

QUESTION: It’s tragic really.

MR. CASEY: Do you really want to hurt him? (Laughter.)

The State Department will reportedly decide George’s fate this evening. The world as we know it will never be the same.
