London - (Vermin-in-Ermine News): The furry muroid's May 2010 debut by the Presidential podium sparked widespread rumors of a White House mole.
On Saturday evening it was spotted again, this time scuttling past a group of non-aligned transatlantic Spoofers gathered under the shadow of Big Ben in London SW1.
The hostelry's wide open doors prompted speculation that it must be an escapee from the nearby sinking ship of No 10 Drowning Street.
Close inspection however revealed a distinctively ermine-like coat, suggestive of an interloper from the House of Lords - maybe even nearby Buckingham Palace itself!
"We're being stalked!" one of the writers cried as a hush fell in the St James' equivalent of The Blind Beggar Pub.
"It's probably working for the Kray Brothers," another added as the vile little critter continued to menace in a manner reminiscent of Rahm Emanuel grooming the White House press corpse.
A few hours later on the westbound platform of the District & Circle Line the same furry little bastard's snarling snout suddenly popped up again, scattering travellers in all directions as it made its way to the chocolate vending machine.
Reports that the creature is a mechanical device remote controlled by the CIA have been dismissed as pure speculation.
The Open Top Bus to Hyde Park Corner is teeming with the furry beasts.
