Dick Pound is “deleted” by mistake

The World Anti-deletion Agency has today charged Floyd Landis with the “unlawful erasure of Richard Pound.”

WADA claims their chairman was “wiped” by the American athlete. Landis countered by saying he was “just doing a bit of spring cleaning” when he “accidentally” deleted the Canadian lawyer.

Pound was due to have stood down as head of the anti-doping agency in November but he may now have to stay in position until he can be “digitally reconstructed.”

Data retrieval experts say this could take many months and take many billions of US dollars. A spokesman for WADA said:

“The expense will be worth it. It’s essential we de-delete Dick. Who else would ignore WADA rules and accuse athletes of doping before their hearing dates? Without Dick, we’re screwed.”
