Uri Geller has been told by doctors to rest after being diagnosed with a mild case of the bends during deep water diving in Gibraltar.

Geller is said to be absolutely fine but is still "gushing hot air".

Geller was made famous in the 1970s when he was televised many times over performing "stunts" like bending spoons and re-starting watches. His fame has somewhat iminished since once it was realised that he really was bending spoons, and was "re-starting" perfectly good watches.

Geller is more famous these days for threatening legal cases against anyone he deems to have sleighted him. One of the more recent cases of this was against the company that created the Pokemon cartoon. Uri's lawyers have said this about a particularly cuddly Pokemon character:

"Nintendo exploits Uri Geller's name and image and adds lightning bolts on his chest and a star on his forehead. What kind of mentality is this? Nintendo will learn that what they have done to Uri Geller is not a game they can win."

-- Please note, this story is not true and is completely made up. Very much like many of Geller's claims.

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