Prompt: hope

President: "Look, honey! It's the Hope Diamond! Right here in our very own Chicago Museum!"

First Lady: "I should hope not. That jewel is cursed! It's associated with murder, corruption, insanity, mayhem and instant death. It's actually in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington."

"Oh, So that's what's wrong with the country. How did we end up with it?"

"It was donated to us in 1958. Things were pretty good until then."

"Say, honey, how would you feel about us regifting it to one of our very close friends?"

"You wouldn't be thinking North Korea, would you?"

"Hope does spring eternal."
