Visibly enraged, Pakistan's pretender to the throne has demanded an apology from Spoof for 'abusive language'.

Insisting that he is a dictator and not a democrat Musharraf took potshots at Spoof writers based in Pakistan for calling him a 'wannabe democrat' and totally rubbishing his dictator credentials. In a packed news conference a heavily perspiring Musharraf stated, "What is more important - democracy or safety of the nation? If the country is going down is it democracy that is important or defending the nation?".

Answering his own question Musharraf re-iterated "Of course it is not democracy. I am the Shupreme Commander and I will do what I think is right even if I'm wrong - so there, put that in your pipe and smoke it".

In response Spoof withdrew its reporters. Contacted by a news agency Spoof declined to comment other than to say that it stood by its reporters and a statement would be forthcoming.

"We believe media freedom is essential to economic and social development and stability, and actively support the development of a free and fair press in Pakistan," a Pakistani Foreign Office spokesman said, adding "however if you write bad things about us then we will give you a befitting reply. We are a nooklur state".

The Spoof article referred to Musharraf as a "sheep in wolf's clothing", a dictator who 'secretly harbored democratic tendencies" and a man who could possibly "see reason".

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