There were mixed reactions today from world leaders to the news of the April 1st launch of the new blog, “Manneken News Flasher.” Finishing his fourth packet of cigarettes, President Obama was said to be panicked and, when put on the spot by reporters, admitted that he had made “no contingency for this in the health bill”. Sarah Palin, meanwhile, said the blog represented the coming of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. She warned that as predicted in the Bible, it would lead to conquest, war, famine and death. In response the blog told her to go back to Alaska and stick her head up a dead bear's bum.
Over in the Middle East, President Ahmadinejad of Iran interrupted a speech on the subject“Gravity doesn't exist”, to denounce the blog as a “Hindu-Jewish plot,” and said that it was well within reach of Persian missiles. Meanwhile in the mountains of eastern Afghanistan, Taliban sources reported that a totally disorientated Bin Laden had applied to join Greenpeace.
In Tibet, the Dali Lama has reportedly taken to drink, while prayers are being said in the Vatican, where his holiness, the Pope was found taking out his anger on the bare bottom of a young priest, who is said to have sympathized with the blog.
On the other hand, President Chavez of Venezuela welcomed the blog, saying it represented “another death blow to the forces of imperialism.”
and he was quickly followed by former President Castro, who stated that the launch gave him hope that he might now live to see the birth of world socialism. Even Prince Charles has chirped in saying he found the blog “absolutely spiffing” and that he was sure it would be a “boon to the plebeian masses”.
