WTO MEETING - Narnia walks out of talks; says tired of EU, US 'bullying'
HONG KONG - The independent state of Narnia has walked out of trade negotiations here, citing pressure from the European Union and the US to enforce liberalization of its garment-related sector.

Narnian spokeswoman Susan Aslan said in a statement that delegates "were tired of bullying by EU and US delegations and would be returning immediately to their state capital at Cair Parvel."

Having said that, it's about as plausible as half the news announcements in Dubai this year - who remembers Rotating City? Or even Chess City, where you could in theory live in Pawn Tower?
