Tel Aviv - (Hosreshit Mess): Israeli Prime Monster Ehud Olmert was being questioned under caution today about suspected corruption.

Police believe Olmert 'dispensed favours' in return for a discount on the 2004 purchase price of a Jerusalem talking horse.

But beast failed to win any races, mysteriously lost one of its legs and then caught fire while trying to escape from its stables.

Olmert is accused of starting a vendetta against the nag's previous owners who came highly recommended by international horseflesh expert and former US ambassador to the Court of St James's William Stamps Faris III.

A paper trail shows Olmert demanded the return of his money and menaced the beast's former owners.

They in turn called in the cops and said the promised special favors never materialised.

"We think he's now utterly screwed," their attorney said today.

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