National Lampoon star Randy Quaid and his wife have sought asylum in Canada from 'the murderers of Hollywood'.Except accuse people of trying to whack you.
In a bizarre move the pair plan to apply for refugee status, saying they fear for their lives if they are forced to return to the U.S. where they are being 'persecuted'.
The move came after the couple were arrested in Vancouver on U.S. warrants related to vandalism charges resulting from their arrest last month on suspicion of illegally squatting at a home they previously owned.
Mrs Quaid begged a Canadian immigration adjudicator not to force her to return, saying friends, such as actors David Carradine and Heath Ledger, have been 'murdered' under mysterious circumstances.
'We feel our lives are in danger,' she said. 'Randy has known eight close friends murdered in odd, strange manners... We feel that we're next.'
During a break in the proceedings, the Quaids' lawyer, Brian Tsuji approached the media to read a single-sentence statement from the Quaids.
We are requesting asylum from Hollywood star whackers,' he read, declining further comment on the mental state of his clients.
Quaid, 60, said he had visited Canada to receive an award by a film critics group.
When questioned he denied he had a substance abuse problem.
'It's been a very welcoming nation to me,' he said. 'I would not do anything to besmirch my reputation.'"
