The Office of Fair Trading has promised to investigate complaints that God's claim to have made the world in seven days may be a case of false accounting. The project, which was completed some time ago, was held up as a "flagship build" by God World Builders Ltd leading to their slogan "God made the earth in seven days flat".
"We are looking to trace the person that commissioned that job as we strongly suspect they may have been overcharged," a spokesman for the OFT explained. "We believe they were charged for seven days' labour but we've uncovered some written documentary evidence in a bible that suggests he completed the job in six, and did nothing on day seven. This kind of rip-off is not something one would tolerate from a mechanic," the spokesman continued "so if he thinks he can get away with it because he is God, he hasn't got a prayer"
If found guilty this will not be the first time God has fallen foul of the law on the project. Previous complaints have been upheld regarding the quality of the build. The first case was brought not long after the earth was handed over, when an earthquake revealed a crack in the surface of the earth. Further investigation showed these fault lines were all over the place and concluded it was all down to shoddy workmanship.
Defending the previous problems in court, the omnipotent one said: "I see why people wish to accuse me of trying to save labour by only having one man do the job, but I was more than capable. And to suggest the only reason large amounts of gas leak from the earth's core is because I am not corgi registered is ludicrous." Although God never went to jail for those offences, he was tagged and ordered not to build anything bigger than a continent for 3000 years.
Speaking about the current accusations, God claims doing such a thing would be immoral. "Fiddling the books is number eleven on my list of things I cannot stand. In fact, if there had been room on the tablet, the eleventh commandment would have been 'thou shalt not commit false accounting to blag an extra day's wage'. Well either that or 'thou shalt not covet my neighbour's conservatory, but get God to build me a new one instead'."
