WASILLA, ALASKA (The Borowitz Report) - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol has agreed to appear on a reality show despite her mother's well-documented objection to reality.

In agreeing to appear on the ABC Family series The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Bristol is breaking with family tradition, Gov. Palin said: "We Palins don't like reality. It's not our thing."

The former Alaska Governor said she is allowing her daughter to engage with reality for the duration of the show "just so long as it doesn't become a regular thing."

Gov. Palin's husband Todd was also asked to be on the program, Gov. Palin confirmed, but declined to do so because it would have required him to emit sounds. More here.
