America is to break off diplomatic relations with the UK after the British government did what appears to be a shady deal with Iran by selling them Wales. The deal which is said to be worth around a warehouse stockpiled with bingo balls, which the Iranians had always said they didn't have, plus some cash. A government spokesman had this say. "Everyone in the UK has been affected by the world shortage of bingo balls and the dire consequences that followed. We have been seeing rioting, looting and severe A1B1 syndrome epidemics. This deal will allow UK bingo to return to normal and secure bingo ball supplies for well into 2010. We fully expect that A1B1 in this country is at an end." He also pointed out that the selling of countries is outside of any trade embargos.
The US government immediately broke off all diplomatic relations with the UK and the President gave a rushed TV interview to explain the crisis to the American people. In the address he said "We knew it. This time we were right. For once we were damn well right. We knew the Iranians had been stockpiling bingo balls at a time when the whole world was in need. Iran denied it while all the time doing a shady deal with the UK government. Not only that but for the UK to sell Wales, a strong ally and a major supplier of sheep to the US, is nothing short of outrageous. Military action against the UK is not out of the question."
A spokesman for the writer, of the entire A1B1 syndrome world bingo ball shortage and the UK sell off stories, Mr. Locket, had this to say "From my point of view I think this brings both stories to a neat ending. I can see no further point in continuing either of them and will now concentrate on fairy liquid and fairy wanking stories instead which I believe are far funnier subjects."
