In a sharply-worded statement to President Ihava Nodinnajaket of Iran, Gordon Brown almost sparked World War 3 when he asked if the President was deaf, dyslexic or just plain bloody ignorant.
While the remainder of the world applauded Mr Brown's etiquette for actually offering options other than just 'plain bloody ignorant', (which the German Chancellor said was itself almost a slur on the ignorant of Germany), the Prime Minister was quite angry with the President's answer to what was a simple question.
The President queried Mr Brown's "unclear appeal to Iran", asking if he could clarify exactly what was unclear.
Gordon Brown then had to contact the President again to re-iterate that he had in fact made a "nuclear appeal to Iran".
Following the clarification, the President again got in touch with Mr Brown asking him if Britain wanted some of the nuclear weapons that Iran have definitely not been making for the past 4 years, as he was in a position to be able to offer the nuclear weapons Iran doesn't have on special "buy three get one free" deal.
President Nodinnajaket urged Mr Brown to buy the nuclear weapons Iran doesn't have while stocks last, or at least before they bomb Iraq and Israel.
