Gold! What the miners were digging up

As Martin Hernandez Gomez, the last of the Chilean miners to be brought to the surface has been forced back down the rescue hole.

Cameras were checked as Gomez came to the surface, and he had left the TV and all the lights on.

Gomez had persuaded the others that he would be the last up, as he was the thinnest and would require the least amount of help for getting into the capsule. However, what his compadres had completely forgotten was that Gomez is the most forgetful person on the planet.

"It was not a surprise to learn that Gomez had left the lights on," said fellow trapped miner, Richard Carlos de Antillies. "He was always forgetting to do stuff while we were down there, like refresh the air and flush the portaloo."

The rest of the miners were greeted by the president and their families, while when Gomez came out, he was met by the mine owner, who told him that he had to go back down and turn the lights and the TV off, and make sure that the cave was nice and tidy.

The news of the return of Gomez back into the cave came as welcome news to the news journalists gathered around the camp site, as it meant another five hours of TV they could record.

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