BATON ROUGE (The Borowitz Report) – In the aftermath of Irish voters legalizing gay marriage, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has used his emergency powers to ban all Irish products from the state.
The sweeping trade sanctions will prevent popular Irish products, such as Jameson whiskey and Guinness Extra Stout, from being sold in Louisiana.
Jindal explained that breaking off trade with Ireland was necessary to protect the sanctity of marriage in Louisiana.
"Every time someone takes a sip of Guinness, a part of straight marriage dies," he said.
