It is reported that a jellyfish has been stung by a passing politician in the sea at Lanzarote. The Jellyfish was feeding close to the shore when it came into contact with the spineless creature (invertibrata politici) and is said to have suffered loss of self-respect and a feeling of contamination. It also lost its breakfast.
A spokesman for the Spanish tourism ministry said yesterday "Swimming politicians are a hazard here during the Summer months, and local wildlife is usually clever enough to keep out of the way."
The jellyfish was not available for comment.
