SLAGTOWN - The economy of The SLAGLands has spiralled out of control today, as Minister of Foreign Finance Doned McIntyre discovered--while shopping at his neighbourhood convenience stores of SLAGWay--that he did not have enough money to buy a pack of Big League Chum bubble gum. The gum had been upped in price from the usual 0.89P (eighty-nine cents) to 0.99P.

"To say that I was aghast would be to undermine the matter at hand," said Minister McIntyre in a recent press conference. "To say that this is obviously indicative of the worldwide depression at hand is far, far more accurate."

Local SLAGWays have reported similar incidents of monetary shortage, as teenagers and secretaries alike are unable to acquire their daily dose of Big League Chum.

"This apparent lack of pocket change is creating chaos within The SLAGLandic economy," reports Minister of Commerce Maria Elsington. "Already, the United Nations has lowered its report on our economy from a hulking Powerhouse to a meager Thriving!"

Acting Prime Minister Bodyguard Barry has yet to comment on this crisis; however, the SLAGLandic Ministry of Finance is projecting a net loss in GDP of 383 kajillion percent--which will, of course, not at all hinder The SLAGLands' purchase of arms and small nations.
