As it happens...
" Iraq Turns into Lump of
Edam cheese "
6th April 2003, Doha, Qatar
A spokesman for the US military
announced at a press conference in Doha, the Qatar capital, this morning that the whole of
the country of Iraq had at around midnight, Saturday 5th April transmuted into a
massive lump of cheese of Dutch origin, very likely Edam. We should bear in mind
however that recent US military announcements regarding the invasion of Iraq
have tended to be a little...untrue. On Thursday, the US foreign office issued a
press release declaring that " Saddam Hussein Smells Exactly like 15 tons
of rotten herring", which
while arguable, was hardly a recent development, nor due in any part to American
and British occupation of Iraq. On Tuesday, the opening of a
McDonalds in downtown Basra was hailed as "A groundbreaking move to Western
ideals" on the part of the Iraqi people. Nobody seemed to care that this
was in fact complete and utter BS. More news as we receive it...
