Lip synching banned in Turkmenistan

The Turkmen President is a man of strong vision for his country and unwavering leadership; After tackeling the huge domestic issues of Opera and Ballet by banning them, the man is taking on his biggest challange yet: The scourge of lipsynching. He is banning it, from the whole country! Niyazov has ordered a ban on lip synching performances across the tightly controlled Central Asian nation, citing "a negative effect on the development of singing and musical art," the president's office said Tuesday. So I am guessing opening Kareoke bars over there may not be such a good investment after all. Britney Spears is reportedly is not amused by this at all: "But I like touring in Turkey", she exclaimed while pouting. She then proceeded to stuff her mouth with Spam, which she ate with a spoon from the can, like the white trash hoe that she is. Reps for Ashley Simpson still can not be reached for comment!
