[April 1] Nadia Comaneci named Foreign Ministry; Karolyi is back!
Bucharest, London, and Langley-Virginia
   Bucharest/ Former Romanian gymnast Nadia Comaneci will be named as Foreign Ministry during next week, Romanian Prime Minister Tariceanu has announced today after an urgent meeting with Nadia Comaneci and former tennis players IIlie Nastase and Ion Tiriac.

  All members of Democratic Party, the main ruling party, were fired today from the Romanian Government and the (liberal) Prime Minister has to announce a new team by the end of next week.
   "It's a great honour and a great responsibility, but I'm confident I will succeed due to may last 10 years of experience gained around the World in different projects"
, said Nadia Comaneci for this morning. She will take her position next week, after the Laureus Sports awards ceremony.
   What about Nadia's little boy Dylan and her previous engagements around
the world? "The Romanian Government will provide me a (rented) Concord plane, to save time by shortening my overseas trips" (from 8-10 hours to only 4).
     Tiriac recently brought top European billionaires for a brainstorming meeting in Romania, to show them available investments and hunting oportunities, also. Between 2-300 wild boars were shot during the meetings, steering huge protests from local wildlife organizations, but this is a small price to pay for Romania's progress; as long as is paid by others-in this case, the animals- it's ok for some people.
       Top Romanian former athletes will be included in the new Romanian Government: Nadia Comaneci will be Romania's Foreign Ministry, former tennis player Ilie Nastase will head the Ministry of Education (after his success during "Amalia Program" to educate and prepare the young girls for joining earlier the European Union) and Ion Tiriac, another former tennis player and mogul recently included into the Forbe's Top of World's Billionaires, will be the new Finance Ministry; he is famous for his care on his own money so maybe that was the credential to that position.
     At Nadia's suggestions, to solve the crisis from Romanian gymnastics, Bela Karolyi has been offered the position of head coach of Romanian Gymnastics Team. He accepted and will arrive next week at Deva. He already gave first instructions over the phone and new locks and window bars will be mounted next days at girl's camp.
    "I have to use the Good Old System to bring Romania back on the First place, where she belongs", said Karolyi during a phone interview. "I'm on a hunting trip right now, need to kill more innocent deer first to be back in shape, but I will do whatever it takes to bring the Gold in Beijing Games". Yeah, we know, whatever it takes..." I will also bring back Andreea Raducan on the Romanian Gymnastics Team! I told her, if she wants to get from IOC a Gold medal, she has to won (another) one, in Beijing!"
  This news has caused some emotions in Deva, both positive and negative ones. The Romanian gymnastics team had their day off on Sunday and they were all gone to have one of their Last Trip to the cake shop. "We have to store & hide as much chocolate we can, it's our last chance before Karolyi's arrive" said team leader Sandra Izbasa. "Our coach Nicolae Forminte let us to buy what we want and have the mobile phones with us, but we need to re-learn those little things which helps nadia's generation to survive starvation and depressions-like chocolate and making plans to bring and hide chocolate."
       Octavian Belu was not available for comments, he is on a Honey Moon cruise after (finally!) marring Mariana Bitang in Las Vegas, Friday.    

  A Special April 1st . Story

[April2] The above story was just another Joke during April 1st, Fool's Day

*Real name was replaced with nickname upon CIA's requests
** "huge amounts were spend for my removal", said Belu during his resignation press conference
