Mr. Jones at home yesterday

Llanfairpwllgwyngyll gogerychwyrndrob wllllantysilio gogogoch, Wales - Welshman Dow Jones was arrested yesterday morning on fraud charges and for impersonating a major indices. Mr. Jones, 94, was released on bail last night after posting the $894 billion bond using his two bedroom cottage as collateral.

When reached for comment Mr. Jones said;

"Everything was great last year, people were happy with me, always buying me drinks at the local and then it all changed. In the last few months people have stopped talking to me and I am regularly spat upon."

Mr. Jones, his wife Nikkei and son Dax now live in fear of reprisals for what Mr. Jones says "is just a correction- we all believed we were overvalued."

Nonetheless the charges are not likely to go away and in fact, police are considering additional charges in connection with Fannie Mae.

"I've never even met the girl," exclaimed Mr. Jones.

Welsh people are suffering from the fall in house prices like everyone else. The average house price in Wales has now fallen to £1.42 from a high of over £3.00 in 2006.

The Jones' son Dax has not come away unscathed:

"My girlfriend broke up with me when I suggested we play footsie. She completely took it the wrong way!"
