Brest, Finisterre - (Retrograde Stuff): A massive 179,000-ton Panamanian tanker, the Hanjin Rizhao, has been in collision with the Turkish-registered YM Uranus, carrier of 7,000 tons of gasoline solvent called heavy pygas.

The accident, off Finisterre in Britanny, sparked fears of a gigantic explosion in the middle of the English Channel.

Coincidentally the prang occurred just as the ice gas planet Uranus became conjunct with the gas giant Jupiter in Pisces, the sign of the fishes.

As the YM Uranus began listing in the choppy French coastal waters there was another weird coincidence taking place when the damaged ship's international manager was revealed to be a Mr V. Ships.

In an interview with local French TV Mr Ships said he'd read in his horoscope that morning something about 'pouring oil on troubled waters'.

The Exxon Valdez sank on Prince William and Harry Sound, sparking fears of Princess Diana's suicide.

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