DAMASCUS, Syria - Word coming out of the Syrian Desert is that the Syrian government has decided to cancel its planned invasion of Scotland.
A spokesperson for the Syrian government Yamadin Hashiki, 40, stated that after going over the financial situation it was determined that the cost of the invasion was actually 3.7 times more than what had originally been allotted.
Hashiki, who just got married on September 18, said that if Syria went ahead with the invasion, which was scheduled for Saturday, October 5, it would have meant that they would have had to cut back on the nation's food stamp program as well as the national badminton finals which are scheduled to take place the first two weeks in November.
When asked if the invasion plans are cancelled or merely postponed, Hashiki grinned and said that it is his understanding that the plans are cancelled.
SIDENOTE: Yamadin Hashiki has said that all of Syria's 14 tanks have been placed in storage.
