Julian Assange to Launch Social Network for Diplomats, Twofacebook™

LONDON (The Borowitz Report) -- Moments after being released on bail, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was already making plans for his next venture, a social network for diplomats called Twofacebook™.

Mr. Assange said he came up with the idea for the new site while combing through hundreds of thousands of pages of WikiLeaks documents: "I realized that diplomats didn't have a way to reconnect with old colleagues so they could lie to them."

Saying that he hopes to build the site into a "portal of deceit," Mr. Assange said, "this will be a must-visit destination on the Internet for sworn enemies to friend each other."

The WikiLeaks founder said that Twofacebook™ would also enable members of the diplomatic community to share information about music, movies and TV shows "that they say they like but actually detest."

Additionally, he said he had high hopes for the site's first online game, Harmville™, in which diplomats can kill or maim each other's sheep.

Elsewhere, President Obama said he was "delighted" by his new deal with Republicans, in which he agreed to give them his lunch money. More here.
