Spanish Woman Declares Self Apollo (Ben)

A lovely Spanish women by the name of Angeles Duran is now the registered owner of the Sun.

It seems this woman has found a loophole:

There is an international agreement which states that no country may claim ownership of a planet or star, but it says nothing about individuals, she added.

"There was no snag, I backed my claim legally, I am not stupid, I know the law. I did it but anyone else could have done it, it simply occurred to me first."

Not stupid indeed. Before you congratulate her new aquisition you really should read the fine print.

Duran, who lives in the town of Salvaterra do Mino, said she now wants to slap a fee on everyone who uses the sun and give half of the proceeds to the Spanish government and 20 percent to the nation's pension fund.

She would dedicate another 10 percent to research, another 10 percent to ending world hunger -- and would keep the remaining 10 percent herself.

10%? Not too bad given todays economy. Hey, a crazy woman's gotta eat, right?
