THE small Swiss town of Davos was last night celebrating another successful year of A-grade horseshit and frenzied wanking.
As the World Economic Forum draws to a close, the organisers said they had established a new benchmark in meaningless exchanges and empty, ego-driven promises.
Bruno Schmerz, deputy chairman of the grandstanding committee, said: "We can still pull them in. Gates, Sting, that guy that used to hang around Downing Street thinking about trains.
"Even Gordon Brown turned up. Don't get me wrong, it was lovely to see him, but what the hell was he doing here?
"His country is going down Der Poopenschläft but he still finds time to hop over to the Alps for a couple of days.
"Mind you, he does love to sit down with old chums like Greenspan and Bono and have a right good wank."
The organisers said this year's event set a new record for the number of billionaires who arrived by helicopter to talk about the ghastliness of poverty.
Schmerz added: "Davos has once again fulfilled its key objective, which is to allow executives and academics to spend part of the year talking about how they are going to Davos and then spend the other part of the year talking about what Davos was like."
Next year's highlights will include Der ÜberWänk, when all the delegates will gather in the main hall for 20 minutes of frantic, communal self-abuse.
