Representatives of Arctic states have met in Greenland to discuss how bloody cold it always is.
Ministers from Finland, Russia, Greenland, Iceland, Canada, Denmark, Sweden and Norway talked for 3 days along with indigenous inhabitants of the region to see if they could come to any form of multi-partite agreement on how to keep warm.
Leaders of the Yupik and Inupiat tribes modelled a range of cold weather clothing such as wolf fur anoraks, double layer caribou skin trousers and polar bear fur gloves.
Danish foreign minister Per Stig Moeller was happy with the progress made and advised the world's press that all 8 nations had agreed to set up the Arctic Global Education Enterprise Trust.
This organisation would fund advisors from the region and enable them to go out to schools in all the major cities of the world to emphasise to children how friggin' cold the area was.
If the Arctic Trust proves popular, leaders from North African countries, including Egypt, Libya and Tunisia, are expected to form a similar body - but, of course, with a completely different message.
