image for The Man Who Sold The World changes his mind
Who knows? Not me

The man who sold the world, immortalised by eccentric English star David Bowie in a song and an album, today changed his mind, and put the world up for rent.

Speaking from his stair, he spoke of was and when. 'Who knows?, he said, 'not me, I never lost control', and as this journalist was face to face with him, I asked him if he had any plans to try and sell the world again in the future. His answer came as some surprise.

'Oh no, not me', he said, 'you're face to face with the man who sold the world', suggesting that the sale had already happened, so I laughed and shook his hand, and made my way back home.

'World Price Falls In Credit Crunch Shock!', the Daily Mail headline said. 'May be let out, may even have already been sold to asylum seekers.' And the Daily Express said: 'The earth may be dying - we only have 5 years!'

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