Colonel Gaddafi has shocked the world by using funk music to recapture parts of Libya.
In an amazing attempt to daze rebels the Colonel has launched an attack of 'FUNK' on weary protestors.
In a breaking interview Gaddafi explained his motives -
"I woke up this morning to my radio alarm clock set to its usual radio station 102.4 fm. Instead of the station playing the usual substandard Irish country pop king, Daniel O'Donnel, I was greeted with the Godfather of Soul James Brown. I thought to myself, now that is some funky shit, I can dance myself out of the rebellion."
The funk stricken Colonel immediately informed his army to fit the most banging sound systems and sub woofers to all tanks and heavy artillery vehicles, and arranged for all members to be armed with a copy of a James Brown Greatest hits cd.
Doubters were amazed as tanks rolled into the rebel city of Zawihya playing the God Father of Souls Funk classic 'Get up Offa that Thing.' Immediately rebel protestors threw down weapons and began to sporadically dance to the deep beats of the funky bass echoing from the imposing tanks. Within minutes the city was recaptured and Gaddafi's Army and the protestors were as one getting down to James Brown.
In response to the successful funk mission Gadaffi said,
"What mission? I haven't stopped dancing since this morning, I have had 'sex machine' on repeat the past five hours"
Gaddafi is thought to be continuing his mission with possibly introducing other soul/funk artists in strong hold areas, hoping to calm rebels with the silky love tones of the silver tongued lovster Barry White
