The UN announced today that it has given up trying to raise money for the wet folk in Parkistarn*.
Commenting on the collapse of the UN effort General Secretary Wan-Ki-Ban-Ki Moon said "The appeal was going quite well, we had raised nearly half the money Parkistarn* needs, excluding our commission of course. Then Jonah McBroon spoke in support of our efforts and we knew we were screwed. So we gave up on the fund raising and gave ourselves a pay rise instead"
