Almost as expensive as Toner

The extraordinarily high global oil prices are the result of actions taken by Magic Pixies, Gordon Brown heard today. At a meeting with the UK's top Oil executives they explained how it wasn't their fault, Gordon Brown explained it wasn't his fault and the consensus was to settle on the Magic Pixie theory.

"We believe that the intervention in the energy markets by a mischievous bunch of pixies with paranormal powers, is causing the rise in Oil prices." said Gordon Brown today. "It was my colleague President Bush who first put forward the theory and I am in complete agreement. It makes perfect sense and we need to support Oil companies with tax cuts and preferential treatment."

Exxon continues to make $1300 per second.
