Madrid, Spain --

The Basque separatist group vehemently denies responsibility for last week's bombing of a train station in Madrid.

"That's just not our m-o. That's modus operandi, you know way of handling things. We do things on a much smaller scale and we would never, not ever do anything so effectively, like right before elections. Are you kidding?" Joaquin El-loco No-coco said from his cave somewhere in the Basque region.

Spanish authorities really want to blame the ETA because well, as one member of the group said, "We are los perros of Spanish society. They blame us for everything. Speaking Catalan at the Barcelona Olympics--that was our fault. Antonio Banderas defecting to the US--that was us too. I am not surprised they blame us for this. It's ridiculous," Balki Llorabebe said.

The Basque group is taking it easy right now and lying low. "We have abandoned work on this great stink bomb that we were developing. It would have been wonderful as a novelty or as a car-bomb. This whole thing stinks. No, really. Smell it." A young man working in the factory told this reporter.

Yes, it does stink.
