Manama, Bahrain - (Thriller Mess): The US tribute act known as George W Bush arrived in Manama today ready to thrash out a deal with the kingdom's Prince Abdulla Al-Khalifa who has sued the tribute artise calling himself Michael Jackson for over $7 million of unpaid contractual cock-ups.
The visit was brokered by ex-UK Prime Monster Tony Blair whose wife Cherie acted as litigation counsel during the London proceedings which saw Jackson's British assets frozen in a bid to repay debts accrued while on the run from US paparazzi.
Bush looked ashen when stepping onto a camel turd on the tarmac at Manama Airport today.
He was met by the Bahraini King himself in a slickly-staged welcome before being quickly whisked away for an arbitration summit at the royal palace.
At the heart of the dispute is the tricky matter of Jackson owing money to the little royal figuerine.
The debt was incurred after fleeing to the Gulf state in the wake of his California pederasty litigation in 2006.
Jackson's Manama host Prince Abdullah Al-Khalifa went overboard lavishing hospitality on the wacko performer despite vehement protests from a number of Arab states that the island kindgom had become a laughing stock as the world's top refuge destination for western child molestors.
"Some of these other 'western tribute acts' hiding out in the kingdom are closely related to the Bush family," a recent Manama editorial pointed out by way of explanation of why the US Fifth Fleet needs to keep a presence there.
"The European press calls some of these colorful ex-pat characters 'arguidos' according to our latest information.
"If Bush can blag his way out of this one he will be a hero back home."
The tributre atriste known as Michael Jackson is now living at home with the Jackson Five's Mom.
