Italy have at last come clean about their country and after all these years of attempting to hide the truth, they decided to 'come out of their closets, rapido".
President Berlusconi on Italian TV (very corrupt) told the world the secret that everybody knew already: "Italy is totally corrupt, we are proud and we never want to be anything else" he proudly announced.
Italien scandals (in Italy a scandal is not actually a scandal, it's normale, bella!) were hitting the worlds press on a daily basis: The Mafia, Paedophile Catholic Priests, bent Politicians and Berlusconi.
So in their wisdom they have decided to declare Italy the first official corrupt country in the world!
This could be the start of a chain of nations adopting the same policy by "coming out" and becoming officially corrupt!
The Pope has welcomed this gesture of real truth and supports the decision totally, in fact he called it "an act of God"
The next country, well continent actually, expected to 'come out' is Africa and Robert Mugabe has promised an official "African day of Liberation" for those countries who have been lying to their peoples and now want only one thing, to admit that they're all corrupt, what a gesture!
The rest of the world is being cautious and Obama actually asked his good friend, Berlusconi, for some advice and Berlusconi replied "Viva los Corruptos, Dios con tigo, death to the straight and honest!"
Obama has decided to wait until Great Britain declares themselves corrupt, after all we don't want to upset Germany, do we?
