In news described as ‘uplifting’ by the Retired Dictators Welfare Association, former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has been granted a reprieve by the Pakistan Supreme Court.

“Although he completely screwed up the country,” said Chief Justice Chowdhary, “The economic interests of innocent producers are at stake. Hence we will delay his arrest till he completes this project. In this matter we are guided by our brothers in the Indian Supreme Court.”
