Demise of Kalashnikov from the Top Slot

World newsreaders, competing for the prestigious Onomatopoeic Awards, have now said 'Barackobama' more than 700,000,000,000 times.

This tops the previous record of 687,384,107,226 times that the word 'Kalashnikov' has been uttered on air. A spokesperson for the AK-47 said he was "Dismayed!" but recognised that "We knew that we would be shot to pieces one day."

The word 'Architect' now falls out of the top 10. The Royal Institute of British Architects announced "We are very pleased because we had been campaigning for it to be removed anyway!" citing that the unauthorised misuse of the Professional title was in contravention of their professional code of conduct. "ARB have even tried taking several newsreaders to Court."

"George Bush was NOT the ''Architect' of the Gulf War'." they said, "He can't even hold a pencil, let alone draw a line in the sand."

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