Minister for Hats Skanda Yobgob announces the details of the new plan outside his office this afternoon.
Palace of the People, Revdona, 2 p.m. — Minister for Hats Skanda Yobgob addressed the reporter for StateTV1 and RadioKOS early this afternoon to announce the details of a new government hat austerity program.
“Due to the economic troubles in the captialist states, there has been a greater demand for warm winter woolen hats made in Koskovia. Therefore in the interest of friendly relations, the Ministry for Hats has authorized the sale of remaining stocks to the western nations. Therefore there shall be, for a limited time, a shortage of new hats in some parts of Koskovia, most likely your part. To alleviate some of the difficulties, I have ordered all members of the Ministry of Hats to reduce the size of their hats by 1 mm, as I myself have done as you can see.”
Minister Yobgob then dramatically pointed to his hat, which indeed looked smaller than usual.
“It is hoped that the ministers and civil service functionaries of other departments will adopt these measures.”
