White House Spokesman Spins Out of Control, Lands in Press Pool, Injuring Seven

Washington, D.C.--Obama Administration press secretary Robert Gibbs "spun totally out of control" earlier today, lofting into the air and flipping over several times before finally coming to a stop in the middle of the White House press pool.

Police described the scene as "like something out of an action-comedy film," as they surveyed the damage caused by Gibbs' absurd attempt to spin yet another failed Obama Administration policy.

"Journalists understand the need for press secretaries to spin events in favor of the administration they work for," said one reporter who was injured while standing next to the pool. "But there have to be some sort of standards that keep things from getting out of hand and hurting innocent people."
