image for Dubai discovers new oil find
a delighted arab sometime this morning

Arab leaders in Dubai were cock-a-hoop with joy this morning over a large find of oil within the sand covered and debt ridden emirate.

The find was reported by Iranian Taxi Driver Abdul Mohammed Mohammed Bin Mohammed while beginning his shift at 7am this morning. Speaking to Dubai news reporter Ali Bin Ali, Mr. Mohammed confimed 'I was just about to pick up my first fare at the back of the Rattlesnake (a well known Dubai venue of ill-repute) when I noticed a large container placed close to the rear exit.

'I parked my vehicle, and upon investigation, I discovered a large drum of industrial strength baby oil. It goes without saying I was shocked and surprised at the nature of this discovery, Inshallah'.

This oil find comes at an opportune time for the emirate, which is reeling from the global downturn and collapse of the camel hair coat export market.

On hearing the news, His Royal Highness, Sheikh Ure Booty, pronounced a day of national celebration and the issue of free baby oil samples to delighted citizens.

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