Prince William to work in Falkland Island gift shop for six weeks

I think this is a nice idea with a lot of potential. Right now it's too short for a Front Page or even a News in Brief. But thankfully there is so much that is intrinsically funny surrounding the Falklands. What would this shop sell? Fluffy rockhopper penguins, Margaret Thatcher and General Galtieri paperweights? Is it staffed by sheep on quiet afternoons? (feel free to nick these, but I'm sure you can do better yourself).
Go for it! (I also like the Ryanair pick n mix idea for off-the-wall-ness)
Lovely idea Lostlad - I'm with Sky on this one. Get cracking on a bit of expansion
Thanks for the encouragement folks,maybe something like this (although please feel free to edit/add stuff...anyone, please!)
...in an act of national defiance to recent Argentinan rumblings, Prince William will work as an assistant in a Port Stanley gift shop. This 'show of force' will see him selling a range of Falkland Island themed gifts to tourists and local schoolchildren alike. A Royal Navy Task Force has already been despatched from Portsmouth, earlier this week, destination classified, but widely rumoured in small circles, thought to be carrying an arsenal of souvenirs to the South Atlantic. Among the cargo is said to be in excess of 50,000 Lady Thatcher rubber, pen, pencil and ruler assortments, 500 union jack Thatcher-style handbags, 1000 'Guess Who' boardgames, featuring the members of the 1982 Tory cabinet, and 5 tonnes of specially commissioned, limited edition 'MrsT' mugs, Tea-pots and tea-towels.
These latest developments come less than a fortnight after it was revealed Prince Harry had been secretly working as a road crossing safety officer, more commonly known as a 'Lolly-Pop' man for the last six months on the Falkland Islands, before his cover was 'blown' by an 82 year old NewZealand Great-Grandma, who was stopping off during a round the world cruise. Prince Harry's official engagements had been carried out by an obscure, ginger, Australian actor called Greg McClure, who had enjoyed small parts in the popular Australian daytime soap, 'Home and away' in the late 90's, coincidentally playing a 'Lolly-Pop' man in episodes 5326 to 5472. The story is to be made into a BBC1 90 minute, Sunday night, docu-drama by the eminent military historian and friend of prince Charles, Sir Max Arthur, entitled 'I was Prince Harry's double', to be shown later this year as part of the Queen's 60th anniversary celebrations.
A spokesman from the palace also stated that Prince William will also be helping weigh the pick'n'mix.
Yeah, that's more like it! Nice rewrite...
Yep - barking mad
