Brangelina buying island full of orphans

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolieface have bought a man-made island in the shape of Ethiopia that is part of an ambitious luxury development off the coast of Dubai.

Yeah well I told you that Dubai was gonna be the new hot spot months ago. Ya dig?

The couple's purchase is part of cluster of 300 islands, shaped like a world map, that is gradually surfacing in waters off the booming Gulf emirate.

Brangelina's 2-year-old daughter Zahara was born in Ethiopia so its only fitting that she be returned to a billion-dollar man-made luxury island sculpted in the shape of Ethiopia.

Moonwalker / SkyMall cover girl Richard Branson and my boy Rod Stewart are also reported to have bought plots on the island of orphans. Prices for the islands range from 6 to 36 million for a 5 bedroom island.

The bustling emirate of Dubai is busy positioning itself as a global leisure and finance hub through The World and several other mega-projects including the world's tallest tower.

Nakheel Properties (Arabic نخيل palms or palm trees) is the state-owned firm behind the development called "The World". But they declined to comment on just how many orphans are currently living on the isle.
