Horses take over radio station

BREAKING: Reports are coming in that horses have taken over the radio station in the Iriphaphan capital Biriyani. 

They are broadcasting the same message over and over in morse code. Experts tell us the message reads no more with the iron feet, suckers.

Tensions have been mounting in Iriphapha in recent weeks since it emerged that the government had armed its troops only with custard pies and a two types of chocolate trifle. Meanwhile, it appears that the country's horses have somehow got hold of F-22 Raptors, the latest generation of US stealth fighters and a range of armoured vehicles and tanks.

There are unconfirmed reports that many of these advanced weapon systems have been adapted for equine use by mercenary scrap merchants.

The US denied any involvement in the escalating situation.

Sure, we like horses, said US Under-secretary for Equestrianism Jim 'Cowboy' Kana, but we don't want to see them taking over countries in armed uprisings. That's a job for us humans. 

Speaking for the British Government, Foreign Secretary William Vague said he deplored the action of the Iriphaphan horses but there was no point in bolting the stable doors after they had taken over all communications links.

Mrs Tharg of Battersby Thungwack comments: It is about time there was a change of regime in Iriphapha. We shouldn't look a gift-coup in the mouth. 

Tom Gulltrunk of Delia Sidings says: I'm not surprised the government is in trouble. They've been flogging a dead trifle for years. 

Mr Fracking of Balcombe Worries says: You can take a horse to a radio station but you can't make it drink. 

We'll bring you more on this story as soon as we have it. IJN Chief Foreign Correspondent John Simpers is on his way to Biriyani and hopes to get the latest straight from the horse's mouth.

Aesthetic jam threat

The European Union wants to redesignate certain British jam as paint after it was found to contain mostly colouring and paint. The Aesthetic Jam Co says the only way to get jam to tone perfectly with people's kitchen colour schemes is to add quantities of paint.  People who demand beige jam to match their kitchen have to expect a little variation in the recipe, said Jim Spread of the Aesthetic Jam Co. The Aesthetic Jam Co admits jam made mostly from paint is likely to taste a little painty. Photo by KAL VISUALS on Unsplash

Duck for president bid fails

A last minute third-candidate bid for US President from Daffy Duck failed when it emerged he was born in Kenya. Ridicule is the burden of genius, Mr Duck commented. Can you imagine anything so ridiculous as majority rule? Meanwhile, Americans are left with a choice between the lesser of two evils. Polls have the voters balanced neck-and-neck between a president who is useless and a a president who is bonkers. American democracy is a beautiful thing, said one passer-by we latched on to in Washington DC. It just shows that anyone can become president who can raise a billion dollars in campaign funds. A spokesperson for the American Institute of Total Warfare which represents the arms industry said We haven't really made up our minds yet. We've been impressed by how much money President Obama has spent in warfare but we're wondering what we can achieve if we put a real looney in charge.   Photo by Kris Mikael Krister on Unsplash
