MADRID – Spain announced today that they have bought the sun, and will be charging for usage.
After billions of years the Sun finally has an owner — Spain. The President of the Government of Spain, Juan Luis Zapatero, registered the star with the United Nations. Our sun now belongs to Spain.
Zapatero told the popular daily Spanish newspaper, El Mundo, that he decided to claim the sun after reading about an American man who had registered himself as the owner of the moon and most planets in our solar system.
There was an international agreement which states that no country may claim ownership of a planet or star, but Zapatero feels that he has to do something to help his country out financially, so he has “purchased” the sun – for nothing..
The Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-Moon, issued a new international document declaring Spain to be the official “owner of the Sun, a star of spectral type G2, located in the centre of the solar system, located at an average distance from Earth of about 149,600,000 kilometers.”
Zapatero was thrilled that Ban Ki-Moon approved the purchase. “The Secretary General made the right decision. If Spain can become economically sound, it will help all of Europe and the rest of the world. This will really help the well-being of our citizens and make us a major player on the world stage now.”
Spain has not set a fee structure for usage of the sun. Zapatero said that he would not charge for “daily use” – meaning just for the sun rising every day, but “Spain will be charging a fee for all crops, all recreational activities and for a large fee for all tans.”
Florida, The Sunshine State, will have to pay a hefty fee to use the sun – as will California, Arizona and New Mexico.

Do they know that if they can actually own the sun, they are opening themselves up to lawsuits from people that have cancers that were caused by too much sun?
this is true if you own therefore you are responsible….heat stroke, sun burn, skin cancer…they'll pay more that they will make
Glad to see Spain buy the sun before China got their hands on it! Lets just hope they don't default on thier sovereign debt and sell it for a discount
good one, love ur comment 🙂
Not only that , all people in the world would claim " They dont want the sun rays and stop the rays reaching home OR pay the compensation.
Any new home owners would claim the roof expenses from them
Ha haaa , lunatics !
Yep, they made the purchase right after they bought Texas where they intend to charge tolls to use the roads that we have already paid for and built… Right on Spain!!!
Right… Whats the contact details. I want to Sue for damages. I got sun burn, the paint on my car is fading due to sun damage, my grass is dying and burning, i can sleep during the day cuz of light. I want $10 mill for dames and inconvieance as well as another $10 mill for future damage. Should the owner not remove her property from my garden further law suits will be filed.
I would also suggest to forum of our city that i have found the one responcible for the recent outbreak of runaway and feld fire in the country.
i think u should purchase the universe and have her pay for the using it since the sun is part of the universe. this article is a good laugh. lol
Has the world gone mad? How can you own a star millions of light years away? The sun is free for all to enjoy and we should be careful how we use it. I live in Spain and suntan every year and if you think I am ever going to pay for the privilege, you are joking!!! I thought most politicians were insane, but Zapatero takes the biscuit!!!
By the way, who owns God???
illuminati owns god in this stupid case -_-
I now hate Spain.
Who ever liked Spain?
I say those living in Spain.
Yeah! We have also bought the sun but we owe so much to everybody (thats what they say)
Hello Spain from Greece!
What thu f***! . I just thot of sumthing-why not buy the planet of Earth AND the Moon and get a toofer deal. Who was the owner before and dus this guy have a real estate license and yes everybody and their cusins can now start sending this guy all kinds of lawsuits for just about Any kind of damages; my skin cancer is about 10000 dollars for treatment, so where do I send my bill. The Sun is responsible for the computer and satellite disruptions for my cellfone, so now I can send my compaints too; and I really would like to have summer year-round, so how do I get him to turn up the sundial to keep my plants and landscaping projects from dying this winter– can I stop now?
This is fake. you know how I know? If you type Spain Buys the Sun into Google, the result from this site will have a caption reading "Satire". This whole thing is just ripping Spain.
What if we dont pay
do people actuakky believe this?
how can people be so stupid & ignorant! the sun and the universe is own by GOD..
now someone owns something that GOD had put up for us, wake up! and strat looking at things the right way as god's purpose.
Some people don't believe in God. And Spain, if they do believe in God, they may say that they are 'Borrowing or renting' it from God…
Myself, I'm Agnostic, so I don't deny there may be gods or deitys, but I don't believe in them.
wow, spain bought the sun and they are going to charge money for usage?? what about people that can't afford it? sure this will make a lot of people upset! I've heard that spaniards are continuing to build a human tower to get to heaven. will they buy heaven next?? and what next? are they going to charge admission to enter heaven?? this is crazy.. there should be laws against these kinds of things!!
I suppose Spain will have a lot of lawsuits now; sun cancer, sun burn, depletion of the atmosphere, etc…
I don't know whats funnier, this post or the people who think this is real
Ok, I accept this, now im filing a lawsuit stating that their property is a danger, since they own the sun I am blaming them for every single case of sunburn and most cases of skin cancer+ wrinckes+ sunspots. Thier star has been pouring DAAGEROUS radiation for over 4 billion years on Earth, If they are going to own the Sun, they better keep it under control!
Well the international agreement which states that no country may claim ownership of a planet or star is still in effect and so thus Spain cannot own it in any aspect. Its actually a woman named Angeles Duran, a 49-year-old woman from Galicia in Spain that claims that she bought the sun. Her reasoning being that just because nations cant own planet or stars it doesn't mean that a single person can't. Even if Spain would want to buy it the United Nations cant and wouldn't even sell it, because what Spain plans to do would cause tension between countries. In the support of Spain's actions the United Nations would just look hypocritical.
Not he who claimed the sun, but this random lady in a part of Spain did
Spanish president is called Jose Luis, not Juan Luis..
And how can people believe this? Spanish people we aren't that stupid 😉
