CAROTID - Barney Fyfe, Defense Minister of Teflondia, has announced that his country and Souvlakia have declared war on each other. At a press conference held here today in the capital of Teflondia, he said that troops were sent across the border to come to the aid of a German speaking community, who have lived there since the Middle Ages
"The German speaking community wants to become part of Teflondia, and we are protecting them from an envious enemy," he stated. He noted that the German speaking citizens enjoy a higher standard of living than their Latin speaking compatriots.
He gave assurances to NATO that Teflondic troops would leave Souvlakia once the safety of the enclave was secured. "We are going to set up polling stations, so they can vote on joining Teflondia," General Fyfe said. He noted that the territory in dispute is "about 100 square miles, and Souvlakia will not notice losing that land."
The primary industry in that part of Souvlakia is the manufacture of eyeglass frames.
