Trump Asks Justin Trudeau If He’s Ready To Get Down To Business (satirical article example)

US President Donald Trump wants to know if his Canadian guest is ready to go to the playroom now, it has emerged.

In the first meeting between the two North American leaders, Mr Trump said the time for small talk was over, and it was now time to make some big scary dinosaurs.

Mr Trudeau appeared to be confused by the request, reminding Mr Trump they had a lot to get through. But Mr Trump reassured his guest that they had all afternoon to play if they wanted to. He had over fifty different pots of Play Doh, he pointed out.

It is believed the two will make a huge trade agreement before smashing it down into little pieces.


This is your online portfolio

Hello and welcome to your personal online journal.

This platform has been created to enhance and enrich your learning at Mount Aspiring College. Its purpose is to provide you with an audience for your work (or work-in-progress) and you have the choice (by altering the ‘visibility’ of your posts) of whether your work on here is visible to the world, or only to your teacher.

Anything you post here in the public domain represents you and thus it’s important that you take care with that decision, but don’t be afraid to publish your work – as the feedback you may get from people at home, your peers and people from around the internet is only likely to enhance it.

Remember you can always access your class blog and all manner of resources through the Department of English main website – and by all means check out the sites of your peers to see what they’re getting up to as well.

If you have any questions for me, an excellent way to get an answer is to create a new private post on this journal. I am notified of any new posts and will reply swiftly to any queries.

Make the most of, and enjoy this new freedom in your English learning.
