Iceland now on E-Bay. Going...Going...

Reykjavik, Iceland - The Icelandic parliament met this week in the capital of Reykjavik to discuss their financial predicament. The Icelandic Prime Minister, Geir Haarde, has gone over several options to fix the financial crises in Iceland.

One option was to declare war on either the U.K. or the United States. Then Iceland would surrender in a month just in time that both countries would pump ridiculous amounts of money into Iceland to fix their crisis, like they did in Iraq. Iceland could also start sending their unemployed to both countries. This appeared to have worked for many third world countries that both the United States and Britain have attacked. Both the United States and U.K., after occupation of third world countries, have had to deal with these countries then sending their unemployable citizens to both countries to be taken care of with taxpayer funds.

But then Icelandic lawmakers noticed that both the United States and Britain are facing their own economical crises so that option was tabled.

Then one lawmaker proposed the only last option that Iceland had to face their economical crises. So today Prime Minister Geir Haarde has decided to put the country of Iceland on eBay, the most popular auction site on the internet.

Iceland will be sold to the highest bidder. There is also a "buy now" option for 1 billion Icelandic kronas, or about 1000 euros.

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