Since taking office Mayor Cockayne has spent much of his time solving the vexing and frustrating problem of the Rubix Cube. “It was tough but I finally got it,” said an exhausted Cockayne.
The Republican mayor put together a coalition of local politicians to help him to solve the puzzle.
Democratic City Councilor Ellen Zoppo-Sassu was part of the diverse coalition and offered perspective, “We had this problem with another mayor when I was in the council ten years ago before I left and we solved it then too.”
Added Councilman Calvin Brown “I am only 22 and new at this so I am here merely to learn.”
Newly elected State Senator and former City Councilor Henri Martin offered no help, had nothing to say and ran from the room.
And former Republican City Councilor Derek Czenczelewski remarked “It was great but who paid for the Rubix Cube? Also, why were the Democrats included? They did not ask for our help when they needed it to solve their little Sudoku puzzles.”
The mayor told supporters “Now that this is behind us we can move on to the New York Times Sunday Crossword Puzzle.”
