London - The usual Basil Brush-ish chirpiness has suddenly vanished overnight Chez Renard et Femme Jesme.
Graphic stuff about the UK Defence Secretary and a portly, sans-culottes buffoonish chap called Werritty have suddenly popped up in an Uranian - er...Iranian! - scandal about the Saudi ambassador to the USA.
A spoofy news item apparently uncovered details of a Mossad bugging operation on Liam Fox and Adam Werritty following an evening of unbridled falafel scoffing near Regent's Park Mosque last Wednesday night.
Tonight a US TV announcement confirmed two Iranians had been arrested in a plot to kill the Saudi envoy to Washington His Excellency Adel Ali Al-Jubeir.
The plan included blowing up legation buildings and other targets in an Arab Spring-botch Autumn Special campaign of bloodyhell stuff.
Unconfirmed sauces have said one of the captives was the junior sous-chef at Heine's Falafel House & Sheesha Bar near Regent's Park the night that Fox and Werritty sated their hunger.
"Of course, that's just a loada codswallop but whaddahell?" a Fox family cub-person said.
Sir Gus ('Rosie')O'Donnell is 69.
