Former head of the International Monetary Fund, or IMF, Dominique Strauss-Khan has publicly admitted that despite all that has happened in recent weeks, he still enjoys "Maid In Manhattan."
The 2002 film about Jennifer Lopez falling for a high ranking political figure, played by Ralph Fiennes, has long been a favourite of Strauss-Khan. Indeed, it may have been this very film that got him into trouble in the first place when he was heard ordering it to his room on the night in question.
"Nobody wants to admit that the room service line was bugged," said undercover reporter, Lois Lane. "But it probably was, and that's where it all went wrong."
Strauss-Khan, who has had his own movie career in an early Star Trek film in which he played an angry alien, has been cleared of all charges levied at him, except for being Alastair Darling's father.
"He could still be the former chancellor of the exchequer's father," said leading geneticist, Gene Hackman. "We are awaiting the results of the paternity test. They both have the same silver hair and black eyebrows, and show a remarkable affinity for being in charge of vast sums of money without any financial nouse whatsoever."
Alastair Darling, and Dominique Strauss-Khan were unavailable for comment, the former because he was baying at the moon, the latter because he was settling down for a long session with Maid in Manhattan.
