image for WikiLeaks to be re-branded as WikiLeeks
Turnips are almost like swedes, but Assange still likes them

The Whistle Blowing website, WikiLeaks, run by Australian Swedish Lady Lover, Julian Assange, is to be taken down and re-branded as a site about vegetables.

"Instead of all this troublesome leaking of national secrets," said Assange, "we are going to give tips on growing vegetables, and tasty recipes."

The internet is rife with gossip and rumour as to why this sudden change of direction has overtaken the Australian whistle blower. Some web sites are quite looking forward to the new look site, especially those sites devoted to vegetarianism.

Assange refused to be drawn on whether or not this sudden change in direction had any connection to countries the world over constructing trumped up charges against him. Preferring instead to focus on his new focus.

"The leek is a very versatile vegetable," said Assange. "You can bake it, fry it, boil it. It is the national vegetable of Wales, and as such we felt it would be an appropriate vegetable to use as our new emblem. We're starting our new life with a whole range of recipes for leeks in their honour. Though in the future we will be covering all kinds of fruit and vegetables."

There is one vegetable that Assange won't be touching though.

"We will not be covering anything to do with Swedes."
