European News Network (ENN),"All the news, delivered with a European Flair, by a Eurobabe…"

(Sudekia) Reports are confirming in this African country of Bongolesia of the possible kidnappings of three prominent scientists by anti-govt. forces.
Professor Rudolf Von Reinhardt, Professor Art VanDeLay, and Doctor Nigel Percival Incubator-Jones,(All of Perverticus Industries), along with their driver, local native Goh'Speed R'aysur were reported overdue from a research trip into the Bongolesian Outback.
A search party found the bullet riddled jeep, along with the bullet riddled body of the late local native Goh'Speed R'aysur, but no sign of the scientists.
Speculation and rumor abounded of the fates of the scientists, until unofficial word was received that they were seen alive along with a large container with unknown contents near a BARF military encampent in Northwestern Bongolesia not too far from the border with the CBPR.
Government Officals in Bongolesia will not confirm nor deny that the scientists have been kidnapped by anti-govt. rebels.
His Excellency, President-For-Life P'hat Daddee B'wonah has scheduled a press conference concerning the situation later today. He has graciously allowed all European News Eurobabes to have front row seats.
More info on this evolving situation as we get it.
Now…back to our regularly scheduled program of "Dancing With The Homeless"…

I've heard IKEA is looking to open a store in Sudekia. Coincidence?

Man, I missed almost two minutes of Dancing With The Homeless for THAT!? Must be a slow news day!

p.s. to His Excellency, President-For-Life B'wonah….

Vladimir sends his apologies for the recent delay of your shipment of tanks. It seems there was an "incident" off the coast. Just so there are no hard feelings from such a valued customer, we'll throw in 200 RPG-7s with your next order.

Ummm… my mercenaries are wearing landsknecht costume. They might stand out in Bongolesia.

Although… they do have really big guns!

Oh, wait. You meant…

We don't talk about them.

(They're on the way, Murph. Notify Gargoyle Seven to activate the beacon.)

Cat Shannon's remains always start to vibrate at a time like this.

What kind of scientists were they – anthropologists? Geologists? Botanists? Statisticians?

Hard to get worked up about a party of missing anthropologists…

What, no pictures?

(Of the European News Eurobabes, of course. You think we stalwart frien… uh, allie… uh, "casual acquaintances with no serious ties" of Bongolesia care what a bunch of scientists look like?)

Eurobabes = Robert Palmer's backup band…..

Ohhhhh Yyyyyyyeahhhhhhh…….

I see the Special Action Detachment of the Royal Weiserian Marines will have to execute a suborbital raid and recover the scientists…and we do hope there's resistance…our ortillery gunners are so bored with just live fire exercises!
