image for Russian President Claims Spectacular Meteor Was Lost Continent Of Lilliputin
Lilliputin Remains

BILLINGSGATE POST - Russian President Vladimir Putin, the diminutive leader of the Soviet Empire, declared today that the meteor that burnt out over Siberia last week was the home of his ancient ancestors, the Lilliputins.

With scientists gathering the debris that fell from the skies over the vast wintry plains of Siberia, the charred remains of those citizens who took their last ride on the runaway continent of small people were found in the frozen tundra of this harsh environment

Those familiar with the English classic, Gulliver's Travels, a satire on human nature written by Jonathan Swift in 1726, surely recall the Voyage to Brobdingnag, where a farmer discovers the Lilliputins and exhibits them as minature human beings.

These people, claims Vladimir, were his ancestors. After aimlessly drifting in a distant galaxy for over 200 years, they were attempting to join him in Mother Russia for a gigantic reunion.

Alas, he says, they were unable to slow down as they reached the Earth's atmosphere, and all hands were lost in a disaster that shocked the World.

May they rest in peace.
