LONDON ( The Borowitz Report ) -- Moments after being released on bail, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was already making plans for his next venture, a social network for diplomats called Twofacebook™. Mr. Assange said he came up with the idea for the new site while combing through hundreds of thousands of pages of WikiLeaks documents: "I realized that diplomats didn't have a way to reconnect with old colleagues so they could lie to them." Saying that he hopes to build the site into a "portal of deceit," Mr. Assange said, "this will be a must-visit destination on the Internet for sworn enemies to friend each other." The WikiLeaks founder said that Twofacebook™ would also enable members of the diplomatic community to share information about music, movies and TV shows "that they say they like but actually detest."
