Better returns than coke dealing, arms proliferation and selling of religious indulgences...

Jeddah, Saudi Arabia - (Ass Mess): Political leaders at the Organization of Petroleum Jelly Exporting Countries summit had a right laugh this afternoon.

News that nearly four billion motorists around the world have to kiss their asses on a daily basis now that snake oil has hit almost $140 a barrel prompted widespread cheers and chanting of the popular UK football ditty of 'Erewego, 'Erewego, 'Erewego in Farsi.

For the first time in living memory the crude business has become even more profitable than cocaine dealing, arms proliferation and the selling of religious indulgences.

Reports that the Saudis had hinted they might raise their "oil cushion" spare production capacities were quickly countered.

A press release was issued promising a free whooppee cushion with every 100 gallons purchased for anybody needing a bit of cheering up at the pumps.

Exxon-Mobil is on the verge of bankruptcy.
