In response to the numerous disasters and scandals that plagued 2005, world leaders met and after an unanimous vote began a confirmation hearing for Baby New Year 2006. This unprecedented event resulted in the year 2005 being extended for one second. Sources indicate that a representative for the Times appeared and initiated a closed negotiation.
"I didn't say it was a rep for the Times, I said it was a rep for Time," a source told the Underground Reporter. "As in time time - calendars, clocks and all. The rep basically went in and told them to cut the crap or his boss' boss was gonna kick it up a notch next year."
This summit will also be remembered as the briefest global meeting in human history.
Baby New Year 2006 chose to forgo the traditional ceremonial diaper and opted for a tailored tux.
