Fred stakes his Claim to his Oil off New Zealand Coast

In the 1970s New Zealand Comic and song writer Fred Dag often spoke about a Government Level conspiracy to Hoard Oil Reserves in Huge Rubber Bladders.

He ascertained from Government leaked papers that the Oil Bladders would be buried Deep in the Sahara Desert with Bladders from other Nations, and would be tapped into at the desired time sometime in the future.

It appears all the Government staff that worked on the project have either disappeared or died and along with them the secret hiding place of the Bladders.

It also appears that the leaked papers were purposely misleading in the location of the Badders, says Fred Dag, who has dedicated his life to discovering the hidden Bladders and has to date dug 230,507 holes in the Desert in an effort to unearth the Oil.

Recently An Exploratory Oil Company announced the "discovery" of a Huge Oil Reserve off the South Eastern Shores of New Zealand. They say the reserve is in deep water off the coast and will be costly to retrieve.

Coincidently, we found an excited Fred Dag on a wet afternoon in a small pub in [name deleted for security reasons].

After swearing us to secrecy Fred informs us that he has been investigating the Oil Find, and has discovered in the deep reaches of ocean off the south Eastern shores off New Zealand what appears to be a large rubbery surface approximately 2 kilometres long, and 500 metres wide, 1/2 buried in the soft sands off the coast in about 1500 meters of water.

He is quite positive after carrying out seismic studies that the substance contained in the Bladder is Oil and has approached the New Zealand Government for the sole rights to recover the rubber Bladder and its contents.

"My rights will be first" says Fred, because "I registered my search for a large rubber bladder of Oil in 1974 and now I've found the bladder, its mine "

"We don't know how lucky we are ", says Fred, "We don't how lucky we are"

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