It has been announced in Moscow that Vladimir Putin is to join in a Partnership with Billionaire Roman Abramovich to drill a tunnel linking Russia and America using a giant Black & Decker Drill.

A tremendous battle has been taking place between leading DIY suppliers, Wal-Mart, B & Q, Homebase and Focus to supply the drill which will have a 200ft diameter, almost four times as wide as its nearest rival, and at an estimated cost of 300million.

It is expected that it will take twenty years to build the drill which is twice as long as it will take to bore the tunnel.

The giant hole will create the world's longest undersea tunnel which will travel beneath the Pacific Ocean linking Moscow and somewhere between New York and San Francisco although people living on the west coast of Canada have been warned to keep an eye out for any giant molehills suddenly appearing.

George Bush recently introduced a plan to build the tunnel the opposite way by using US Army, but was advised not to by his old friend Donald Rumsfeld who could not find Russia on Google Earth.

Putin and Abramovich's dream is to eventually create a super toll express highway travelling all the way around the world linking all the top Nations.
