The Hungarian Socialist Party claims ownership over both of the previous Prime Minisiter’s legs, pectorals and one of his testicles. The Democratic Coalition can take the rest – writes Hírcsárda, the satirical news site.
As it looks, the exit of Ferenc Gyurcsány from the Socialist Party goes less than smoothly. Although Gyurcsány announced previously that he would not wish to take along a single pin from the socialists, according to our information at least, he does plan to keep the pin factory that produces them.
Another interesting development is that the Socialists do not seem to agree that the Democratic Coalition simply takes Gyurcsány away from them. “We are the ones who raised him, we are the ones who made a fallen Prime Minister out of him, we do have a right to claim part of him for ourselves” – said Mr. Oszkár Tóth, member of the Socialist Party, who wished to remain anonymous. (26/b Mártírok útja, please ring long, as the button is faulty). The leadership of the party is in session even at these moments, and is debating about what of the former Prime Minister they should keep.
The first proposal was to split him up evenly, with one horizontal or vertical cut. But the alternative of quartering him was not yet rejected either. According to leaked information, as a compromise solution, they may wish to opt for his two legs, his pectorals, and one of his testicles. Eventually, they may agree to settle for his nose and his frontal lobe in exchange for one of his legs.
Speaking through his press spokesman, Gyurcsán merely remarked that following the foundation of his new party, he originally wanted to extend his right (left?) hand to the socialists as a friendly gesture, but given the situation, he will not do that, as they may not give it back.
