image for Why Has Gaddafi Requested Seventy-Six Skips?
Waiting for a skip? The plot thickens.

More sinister developments reported from Libya.

A source in Tripoli has revealed that under-siege dictator Muammar Gaddafi has ordered seventy six supersized skips from Elephant's Trunk Skip Hire of Enfield, Middlesex.

Further investigations proved fruitless as a spokesperson from Elephant's Trunk Skip Hire refused to either confirm or deny that the Libyan despot has indeed ordered the skips.

The Tripoli based source related that she has no idea why Gaddafi would want seventy six skips, but expounded that possibly he intends to use the skips to ship out his personal fortune should attempts to overthrow him succeed.

Some observers related a more sinister application for the skips, but were too frightened to speak out about their fears. A Foreign Office mouthpiece tried to evade the issue by saying that Libyans have a history of reluctance to discuss skips - even in good times.

It was also revealed that a shipping company based in Dover is standing by to take a substantial load on board, reportedly bound for a southern Mediterranean port destination, although Elephant's Trunk Skip Hire of Enfield again refused to confirm or deny any connection.

British actor, BAFTA award winner, and Oscar nominee Colin Firth, who starred in The King's Speech was unavailable for comment.

Make Reddon's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
