It has ben announced in Washington today by President elect Barack Obama that controversial singer Michael Jackson has been appointed Secretary of State in Obama's cabinet.
Press correspondents thought it was a typo error however White House officials confirmed that it was correct and that the former Jackson Five member will be taking up the most senior position in power next to the Chief Executive.
Most senior Washington elites were flabbergasted at the announcement and began questioning the integrity of the President's judgement.
Obama's new chief of staff, who wished to remain nameless but used a hiroglythic symbol instead, stated that Jackson is the King of Pop and deserves recognition in the upper echolons of democratic power. Besides, his moonwalking dance would astound any world leader.
There has been no mention of what role Bubbles the monkey, Jackson's favourite orangutan, would play in the senior diiplomatic service. Maybe he will play an honest broker in the battle between Tootseys and Hutus in Afican Congo.
Jackson, himself, wasn't available for comment as he was having plastic surgery updated on his now infamous nose. When Michael Jackson assumes the post it is expected that he will continue to wear his outlandish, mainly black costumes, to maintain the star power that he has in some corners of the globe, like the Falkland Islands.
