Hedge End, Southampton - An exhibition of dog paintings by ex-US President George W Bush at a Southern England shopping mall is in the frame for a suspected gas attack tonight.
Hedge End Retail Park had to be evacuated after hundreds of people 'came over all queer' just as Bush's portfolio of 20 canine portraits was unveiled on the first leg of a world exhibition tour.
Emergency first responders said that months of training for a suspected sarin gas attack had paid off as victims of the mystery vapor were hurried off in a fleet of ambulances.
Specialists from the UK's National Poissons Unit - er...Poisons!** - said early indications reveal toxic fumes emanating from the US pictures which had been hung under extremely fierce neon lighting at the Hedge End Gallery.
Commenting on the nerve gas implications of the exhibition a Syrian Peeps National Liberation Army of the Glorious Revolution source said 'WTF?' tonight.
** The French equivalent is also known as the National Fishy Business Agency.
