US commodities regulators see nothing funny in the scam

New York - A British trader who manipulated the stock market causing a $750bn crash is facing extradition to the USA charged with wire fraud, ten c*unts of commodities fraud, ten c*unts of commodities manipulation and one c*unt of spoofing..

He denies any satirical intent in the May 2010 scam.

Officials from the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission are gunning for his extradition to America where he faces 1,000 years in prison for the 'flash crash' stunt.

A London court extradition hearing this morning also heard applications to seize his $40m rogue profit, freeze his nuts off - uh, bank accounts! - grab his property and cancel his credit.

"That would leave him with just one spoof account, M'Lud," his attorney told Judge Lowton, a keen satirist.

The extradition is being contested on human frights grounds by the as-yet unnamed trader who spoofs under the pen name of EvilBastardC*unt on the ever popular Hahahaha webshite.

Gordock Gekko's phlebotomist is 105.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
