In a surprise move, President elect Barack Obama has named Michael Jackson as the new Secretary of State.

Asked wether Jackson was qualified for the position the spokeswoman Ms Liah L.Pantsonfia, said that he (Jackson) had significant overseas experience. "In his professional career he has visited more countries than all the Democratic senators put together, so I think that qualifies him dont you?"

A spokesperson for Jackson, Ms Lily Savage, said that the popular singer and part-time alleged paedophile was "Over the moon" at the appointment.
Jackson is quoted as saying " I love you all and I love all people, red, yellow, black or white, I want to visit all the countries in the world and bring peace and love to them"
