Lulu, OBE, former '60's pop star

WASHINGTON, DC - There was some cause for concern today amongst world bankers, or at least world bankers that were still employed, as Barack Obama reportedly tapped Lulu, Scottish born singer-songwriter, actress, model and television personality, to be the next head of the World Bank.

Lulu is best known for her worldwide hit, the theme song of the movie "To Sir, With Love" starring Sidney Poitier, about a black teacher who deals with ruffians in an inner-city school in London during the 1960's.

Of his choice, President Obama said, "Yeah, I really dig Lulu, she's got some good vibes goin', especially in that final scene where Poitier starts ballin' his eyes out. I can just see it now....'To Sirrrrr....with....luh uh..uh..ove.' And, not many people know this-- she's Scottish. Best bankers in the world them Scots."

Before the announcement, the front-runner for the position of head of the World Bank was thought to be Brazil's president, President Luiz Lula.
