Are you sitting comfortably?

'The 1001 Nights' or, as it is often known, 'The Arabian Nights', have been revised, and a new version will be released on Tuesday which will include a new tale, Accidental Death of a Writer, which is an adaptation of the Jamal Khashoggi case.

The 'Nights', originally written at least 700 years ago, are the stories with which the king's wife, Scheherazade attempts to postpone her own death - at the hands of her husband, Shahryar - by leaving an interesting tale unfinished, and promising to reveal the ending the next night.

Saudi Arabia has indulged in its own version of this by dribbling bits of information and misinformation to the world slowly - almost as if it is making it up as it goes along.

The new instalment relates the story of how the assassination of a writer who is a 'thorn in the side' of a Saudi ruler goes spectacularly wrong, and the goonish attempts to cover up the murder with obvious lies.

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