Internet giant Google has today bought the country of Australia for $6.3m, at least $10m more than what it is actually worth.
The astonishing move came after Google announced their move into other areas of expertise in February 2005.
A senior Google representative today delivered this statement: "It is true that we have bought the country of Australia for $6.3 million and we will be renaming it Googleland. We will be using the country and it's occupants for tests into how humans react when put on slow cook in different types of cooker, and how fingers react when jammed into a mincing machine".
Google has yet to cook or mince anyone, but they assure us that it won't be long until Slow-Roasted Aussies are hitting our shelves.
