who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Wolfowitz "to sleep with all Bank staff". "Paul Wolfowitz has agreed to take extraordinary measures to quell criticism of his nomination as World Bank president, in particular claims of conflict of interest due to his romantic involvement with a World Bank employee," reports satirical site Iconoclast.

"Wolfowitz has been involved for some time with Shaha Ali Riza, who works in the World Bank's Middle East offices, and staff are concerned the relationship will make it impossible for him to treat all employees fairly and equally.

"However, this morning Wolfowitz held a press conference where he announced his plans to 'sleep with all World Bank staff once my nomination has been approved.' The current Deputy Secretary of Defense said he will sleep with all 10,000 World Bank employees, 'in alphabetical order,' in order that any accusations of favoritism towards his girlfriend be quieted.

"Asked by New York Times columnist Maureen Down how long it would take him to have sex with the 10,000 bank staffers, and whether he had the stamina, Wolfowitz took umbrage.

'I'm 61, not 81. And anyway, I didn't say it would be quality sex. I can do about three of them a day, in between my other duties, maybe four or five per day on weekends. If people are interested in threesomes, that may expedite things. You do the math.' "
