President of the International Monetary Fund Patsy Laggard has admitted that the Global Financial Crisis is a banking error.
Speaking from her Washington DC office Ms Laggard explained:
"Mai oui, but yes, we are vereee soreee, we made a beeg meestake. A bag of zee cheques from Greece, Eerland, Spain, Portugal and Iceland, zey were acceedentallee credited to my personal bank account in Geneva seex months ago.
"I am veree busee in my new job since Dominique Alvays-Kahn acceedentallee exposed his peenis to 5 deeferent women and I didn't notice zee $5.4 trillion dollar balance seeting there."
Ms Laggard was quick to point out that as soon as she discovered the error she took steps to correct the situation.
"I deescovered zee error five weeks ago and two weeks ago I called in zee auditors who confirmed it was zee stuff up of zee monumental proportions. I kept zee $12.5 million dollars interest but zee full amounts of zee original cheques have been credited to zee IMF and I am pleased to say zee Global Financial Crisis is now over."
World markets recovered overnight and in Athens the half a million bogus public servants are back to work at their tavernas.
