image for The 2012 Summer Olympics: The Unusual Bake Sale That The African Olympic Team From Lower Zamgola Is Having In Order To Raise Airfare To London
Lower Zamgolan Kimino "Bobby" Tatamumbo (R) is regarded by many as the fastest man in the world.

TARZANVILLE, Lower Zamgola - The government of the African country of Lower Zamgola has been immersed in economic havoc since the devaluing of its paper money known as the tambuska.

Prior to Valentine's Day, one U.S. dollar was equal to 197 tambushka's, but since the devaluation one American dollar is now worth 36,203 tambushka's.

Lower Zamgolan President Epsworthington "Da Man" Tungduzi has said that this horrible financial state that his country finds itself in means that his country may not be able to afford the airfare to send its 17 athletes to the Summer Olympics in London.

President Tungduzi informed the Lower Zamgolan people that he did receive a very generous donation of $1,000 or 36,203,000 tambusha's from American hip hop artist Snoop Dogg, formerly known as Snoop Doggy Dogg.

But that is still not enough so he stated that his lovely, pleasantly plump wife, LaMinka "Yoo-Hoo" Tungduzi suggested that in order to raise money they have a bake sale.

The president thought that it was a wonderfully astounding idea and he has put her in charge of arranging the bake sale.

Mrs. Tungduzi informed the Lower Zamgolan news media that she will be sponsoring a Lion Tongue Cake Bake Sale and all of the 17 Olympic athletes will be participating.

She remarked that all of the proceeds will to into The Help Send Our Fantastic Lower Zamgolan Male and Female Athletes To The Olympics in London Fund.

Local political experts have stated that this amazing gesture on the part of President Tungduzi and the "First Lady" will virtually assure President Tungduzi's re-election in November.

An Expression of Thanks. Sports Balls Illustrated Daily would like to express its thanks to President and Mrs. Epsworthington Tungduzi for their generous hospitality shown to SBID reporter Rufus Reno. And although we greatly appreciate the gifts of the hippo, the giraffe, the panther, and the boa constrictor we regret that we cannot bring them to the United States due to the extremely stringent African animal restrictions.
