GlueBarak!

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak failed to leave office last night because he has glued himself to a podium. The podium, which was so new that the glue up on it was still wet, fused itself to his legs as he stood up to announce his retirement from office. Now he has been forced to remain as president until a suitable solvent is found. Unable to announce this to his people for fear of becoming unpopular he changed his story at the last minute and said he was in fact staying until the next election.
