Bricksburg- A startling string of recent events in Bricksburg have led to absolutely unfounded accusations of corruption in the upper levels of Bricksburg's government, even to the all-powerful president himself. In the quest for the truth, we at the Bricksburg Gazette have interviewed a random citizen about President Business' conglomerate of businesses, the Octan Corporation.

"Octan, they make good stuff: music, dairy products, coffee, TV shows, surveillance systems, all history books, voting machines . . . Wait a minute...". The citizen, Emmet Brickowski, was clearly confused. Emmet then went on to ramble about so-called, "lies and propaganda," used by President Business. To this, the editors of the Bricksburg Gazette would like to issue a message. Just because we are owned by the Octan Corporation does not in any way mean we are biased toward the all-powerful and beneficial President Business.

Currently Emmet is leading a violent rebellion with members of the "master-builders," a rebellious group thought destroyed years ago by the amazing power of Lord Business' robot army. A statement is expected from the president of the world, but the evidence suggests he is currently going through with a mysterious plan called the "T. A. K. O. S. Initiative," in order to stop the rebellion.

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