Fiji: Beautigul but full of nutters

Crazed warlord Frank Bainimarama has decided to move Fiji's 4th armed coup to 2010, in an attempt to maximise sponsorship deals from TV and radio networks as well as other advertising media.

Sam Bainimarama, a spokesman for the current Fiji administration said: "To make the next coup the most successful ever we decided that the year was important. 2009 clashes with the European Championship, 2011 is the Rugby and Cricket World Cup, 2012 is the Summer Olympics, 2013 is the soccer world cup. So 2010 was the best choice, we then hope to continue the coups 4 yearly building the competition with each successive coup/festival"

The 2010 coup-fest will also include traditional Fijian music, dancing, as well as other traditional coup events such as burning down houses, intimidating rival party leaders with violence and locking up reporters. Tony Bainimarama chief organiser of coup-fest 2010 said: "Hopefully, with future coup-fests there will be the chance to turn it into an international event, inviting other coup-taking countries such as Libya, Pakistan and Myanmar."

Sharon Sharonson, a spokesperson for Ocean Satellite programming said: " With the advanced planning and organisation of the 2010 coup we should be able to maximise the viewership from current viewership of the pacific nations to world wide viewership. We are looking at suitable times for major events such as the Molotov cocktailing of general stores so that live coverage can be viewed at reasonable times by European coup fans"

Coup-fest 2010 has a tentative start date of the 5th of June 2010.
