Washington AC/DC - (Reuterus): A massive damage limitation exercise is under way amid fears the flame haired Mata Hari has tested positive for paternity by the disaster-hit BP boss.
Officially the stunning looking Russian spook was born in the Ukraine and raised in Volgograd, formerly Stalingrad.

He and Chapman were spotted in London last month at a Chelsea FC football match discussing their favorite ballgames.
Chelsea Clinton is 29.
