Ms Kyi beavering away at her first story earlier

Burma's pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi has obtained internet access two months after she was freed from years of house arrest, and has decided to sign up for membership of satirical news website, TheSpoof.com.

Technicians set up wireless broadband at her home after the military government authorised an internet connection, her staff told us.

Ms Suu Kyi is believed never to have been online, although her neck was on the line several times during her seven years of house arrest. She wasted no time at all in signing up for the site, where will use her own name as a sign-in identity.

Her security chief, Win Htein, said she was "glad" to be able to go online at her home in the former capital, Rangoon, and would use the technology to contact her network of supporters, the AFP news agency reported.

Ms Suu Kyi was under house arrest for seven years continuously until November. She says she may also start trading on eBay, but has no plans to join either Facebook or Twitter, which she says are "shit".

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