Japan, Tokyo (The Lies) - The cause of the China Airlines Boeing 737-800 explosion last Saturday has been put down to it being "repaired in China".

The airplane in question had just arrived from Taipei, landing in Tokyo where eye-witnesses state that, "the left-engine just went off like a Chinese fire cracker", the plane then went on to be engulfed in flames and continued to burn for another fifty minutes.

Air crash investigators from the Chinese Board of Freight and Transportation (CBF) have today determined the cause of the explosion and ensuing fire ball. Early investigation into the explosion has revealed the large amounts of shoddy workmanship and cheap parts used to maintain and repair the plane. This "revelation" comes amid proven claims that many exports emanating from the Communist country are lethal to its western counterparts.

A spokesman for the Board of Free Trade in America stated that; "This explosion isn't a surprise for us. China has been exporting shoddy products to the world for over thirty years. They have given us lead covered toys, contaminated food and dangerous electrical appliances that blow up at the click of a button. China's out to get America and why wouldn't they, we're pretty damn arrogant.".

The government inquiry into the explosion is well underway but is expected to finish quickly, due to the amount of faults found in the plane, its equipment and tampered fuel. A direct side effect of being "made, serviced and repaired in China".

A spokeswoman from the CBF stated that; "This is a clear, cut case of criminal negligence. China Airlines has in the past crashed many times for having its planes serviced in China, turning a blind eye whenever a paper clip was used to service a steering column. But it went one step to far by allowing its victims to survive and shall be punished to the full extent of the law, bribes pending.".

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