Seizure of Brit oil tankers being blamed on pre-menstrual Iranian Revolutionary Guards

Riyadh, Sordid Arabia - (Rotters): Suspicions were first aroused about his majesty’s roots at a 1999 genealogy conference about Arab foreign relations.

Speakers from the Yemeni governorate of the Hadhramaut, part of the historical Qu’aiti and Kathiri sultanates, queried if King Salman’s DNA genome was possibly linked to Persia’s House of Pahlavi.

By the next morning all had perished with symptoms of fatal Nile Swine Fever.

Their remains then vanished in a mysterious puff of smoke.

This weekend the seizure of British oil tankers in international waters was being blamed on pesky - possibly pre-menstrual - Iranian Revolutionary Guards, last bastions of Tehran’s wicked regime.

Meanwhile in Riyadh’s royal palace King Salman was sitting pretty, counting his shekels.

And his princes were left chuckling at all the brouhaha in the Dire Straights of Hormuz.

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