Gold is melted down at local exchange

Interpol today confirmed that parts of looted Ancient Egyptian treasures have been literally "posted" to cash for gold style websites.

One satisfied customer said on a website:

"I knew that this burial mask was worth at least 4 million dollars. But these fellas gave me 17k, no questions asked!. All I had to do was hack it up with an axe; 'n' weigh it in. I may be Egyptian, but it doesn't mean I'm fik!"

The site in question refuted the claims. Masheded went to investigate. A precious metal company spokesman said:

"We got so much gold fella, (HA HA) we' gotta pick it up with a machine. You think we give a fuck about you? We got overheads ya' know! The locals bring this shit in all the time. Who the fucks are you's anyhow?"

"We ship this shit abroad, and it's got fuck all to do with you! Long live Obama"

Masheded was unavailable for comment.

For a change.

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