image for Greece to Buy BP Oil

Greece has today agreed to buy 3/4 of the BP oil slick in a move which will ease the pressure on Louisiana.

Greek PM Kostos Toomuchis explained the decision:

"Petrol prices have risen so fast that some of our rioters are paying up to 1.6 Euros per litre ($1.97) just to fill up their petrol bombs. If things get much worse they'll be forced to cut costs by lobbing lit bottles of ouzo instead and that's a far more offensive substance."

The move came as his government was under increased pressure over multiple human rights abuses. Mr Feta Tzatziki, the leader of Greece's leading civil-rights group explained:

"The government is riding roughshod over our cherished freedoms of tax avoidance and corruption. Tyrannical laws are now being passed which will require planning permission for our buildings, credit limits for our store cards and Drivers' Licences for our motorists. We call on the free world (by reversed charges, of course) to do something about our oppressors."

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