IJN falls for evolution hoax

A story about some species evolving in a rapid burst yesterday has turned out to be a hoax. No fish turned into beavers, as we reported may happen last week.  We can only apologise to any readers who were inconvenienced.


It is impossible for animals to evolve from one species to another in a single day, according to Prof Mandem Pumpsweersinkin of the Drunkonian Institute of Biological Research in Yelping Sidmouth. I don't know how you could have been so stupid as to believe it.

The orginal information was provided by Dr May Dupnaim but this has turned out to be a pseudonym for IJN's arch-enemy Prof Jampants Porridgiaty.


It is very irresponsible feeding false stories to online publishing resources, said Horse McWisker editor of IJN. Imagine what would happen if it became commonplace for false information to appear on the internet.

Prof Porridgiaty was unavailable for comment, but his secretary said: Mwah ha ha ha ha.

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
