Indian Parliament bans lip-synching in Bollywood movies

Starting monday, the Indian Parliament passed a law banning hindi movies from containing any lip-synched songs. Henceforth, all songs would be sung by the actor or actress during filming, stated the bill, passed by a clear majority. This is a major step in the battle to keep all Bollywood operations transparent and free of Middle-Eastern influence.

No film industry professionals were available for comment, all being busy taking crash courses in singing.

Nah, I'm just kidding. Although a law did pass in Turkmenistan. Apparently, it will only affect no-talent Turkmen bathroom singers lip synching to their noisy neighbours.

You know he won't really believe anything unless Karl Rove tells him it's true.
