Myanmar to aid workers: "We're fine, you just have fun with your friends"

Funny story written by Jeff Brone

Friday, 9 May 2008

The country of Myanmar advised foreign aid workers that it was probably better if they didn't come into the country.

Myanmar commented: "These workers are nice kids, I guess, but they always 'make a face' when you ask them to take their shoes off before muddying up the carpets, and besides, they haven't called in a while, though we know they're busy so it's OK if they stay home. Really, we'll be fine. We're going to the early bird special and going to bed early anyway."

The country seemed miffed at the workers, who clearly said they wanted to come by and help out, but who were not let in by Myanmar.

Stig Harrin, the head of "Aid Workers Without All Those Borders" explained that "he didn't want to sound rude, but Myanmar was being a real pill since we couldn't make it to that big dinner they had a few months ago. Most of us had tickets for Bono, but that wasn't good enough for Myanmar. No sir. Since then we called a few times and we just left a phone message, and got no call backs. I also think Myanmar is mad that we never eat those hard candies they put out in those dishes. It's kind of silly, really. "

Myanmar explained that they were "just tired and really didn't want any company" but insiders say the country is upset that the aid workers only show up when there's a big crisis, and usually forget about the country at any other time.

When it was explained to Myanmar that such behavior is really common to most aid workers, they replied "Sure, and if all the other aid workers jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge, would you jump off the Brooklyn Bridge?"
