Embarrassed Man Could’ve Sworn Invitation Said ‘Costume Party’

Embarrassed Man Could’ve Sworn Invitation Said ‘Costume Party’. By the Babylon Bee.

LITHUANIA — A Ukrainian attendee at this year’s NATO Summit found himself feeling embarrassed upon realizing the get-together was not, in fact, a costume party as he had thought.

“Zoinks! This is humiliating!” said the man, who was wearing a brand-new army-man costume complete with realistic army shoes.  … The man then milled about uncomfortably as most of the attendees smiled politely and tried to ignore him.

Anonymous sources have suggested the mix-up was actually an elaborate prank pulled off by French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. “We have no idea what you’re talking about,” said Macron when confronted by reporters regarding the allegations before snickering uncontrollably.

At publishing time, the humiliated Ukrainian had become the guest of honor once again after agreeing to launder a few hundred billion dollars for the suit-wearing people.

Cruel but funny, because it’s true.
