A Halloween Pirate boy called Jack (and his little sister) have made a Million pounds in one night. They achieved this act of financial wonder by dressing up as pirates and kidnapping Barrack Obama.
They got the idea from watching the news. They reasoned that if Pirates in Somalia could make money by kidnapping boats they could make more by kidnapping the President of the United States.
They kidnapped obama at lunch time today and the ransom was paid by tea-time. Jack (age 9) said it was the easiest days work he'd had in his life so far, and he knew all about work because he's got a paper round.
Jack says he plans to buy a spaceship with the money and take all his friends to wage a war with giant Worms on Mars.
The US Government has denied the kidnapping, but has confirmed the existence of giant worms on Mars.
