George W Bush looks set to leave the world stage on an all-time high after talks with North Korea broke down with accusations that there was 'way too much' Shania Twain in the negotiations.
Communist military officials were overheard by US agents discussing the possibility of a dastardly plot to wrongfoot Mr Bush over proposals that talks should be based on his 'Country Plan', a specially designed peace agenda that incorporates line dancing in case 'folks start talking about serious stuff'.
A senior Bush aide complained, "They was protesting right there in the room. Right when Shania sings 'Man, I feels like a roman". We heard 'em talking about their New Korea ambitions, ammunitions, what the heck. We jus' gone have to plum nucularise 'em now".
North Korea's blatant antipathy towards country star Shania Twain has long been a thorn in Mr Bush's flesh. It was she who brought him comfort in the heady days after 9/11 and the New Orleans disaster with 'I'm outta here'. In the run up to the Iraq war her mystic guidance in the words 'That don't impress me much' is thought to have formed the basis of his relationship with Gordon Blair.
North Korea forms part of an island off the coast of Peru. Or is expected to soon.
