In what some are calling a common auction "glitch," Iraq accidentally purchased the previously defunct Fantasy Island Police Force.
"I thought I was surrendering," said Qandijar, a 32 year old male delegate from the region.
"I know english pretty good but what that guy (the auctioneer) was saying, I was not understanding. He kept pointing to me and speaking angrily, so I kept raising the white card in surrender."
What Qandijar surrendered was $2,000 (U.S. Dollars) and a goat to purchase the aging Fantasy island Police Force and all related equipment.
"I made out like a bandit," said the unidentified owner who claims to have inhereted the estate from his boss. "We got rid of everything except the plane, the plane."
As Qandijar rang the bell to summon his new troops, he lamented on how old and wimpy these guys looked. He was also visibly upset that hula girls were not part of the deal.
He did say, however, that the official F.I.P.F. tan shorts uniforms with knee-high socks would be an advantage in this climate.
"And as for that red station wagon with white corinthian leather and candy-striped awning roof," he continued, "that's just screaming to become the latest rogue r.p.g. target. We'll donate that to the U.N."
