Colonel Gaddafi’s grip on reality slipped even further last night after he threatened to use mustard gas against the African continent’s meerkat population.
The dictator claims the animals, of the genus Suricata, have been plotting against him from their stronghold in the Kalahari after he failed to secure a cheap deal on his car insurance.
Ali Abdul Akbari , Head of Libya’s Interior Ministry for the last six hours, said:
‘The Colonel has every right to be pissed off. Do you know the website doesn’t include ‘tank’ or ‘armoured vehicle’ as a drop-down option?’
Gaddafi was until recently believed to be of sound mind, following his recent beheading of the GoCompare singer.
