In a shock announcement President George W Bush admitted that his Presidency was just a joke that went a bit too far.
"I never meant to become President, I am a satirical character comedian and Dubya was my greatest invention, I would turn up at gigs, mispronounce words and rant like a uneducated Nazi as my way of mocking the far right Neo Cons. I forgot that Republicans have no sense of humour, in fact they actually took me seriously and asked me to run for President. I was just going to run for nomination and then unmask myself to make the Republican Party look really stupid, but all that money and power was kind of attractive so I have had to live in character terrified that I would be found out. The ironic this is that I am a socialist"
A spokesperson for the rest of the world said, "It's like all our prayers have been answered in one go and all out Christmases come together."
President Bush intends to spend his last nine months in office putting right as much as he can and trying to create a socialist utopia.
