Pizza duel inconclusive

A duel between judges in the five best things ever awards ended inconclusively when the combatants ran out of pizza.

Lord Wellington challenged fellow judge Hugo Iurwaii to a pizza hurling duel to the death in a bid to settle the deadlock over the five best things.

Nightwear magnate Hugo Iurwaii remains adamant that jam, pyjamas, cheese, bees, and peas should be the five best things while Lord Wellington is entrenched in his view that dark horses, wellies, tall pies, quiche fights and grit should win. 

At dawn this morning, the two met on Catford Marshes and began throwing pizzas at each from a distance of 70 metres. After two hours neither had scored a hit but both had run out of pizzas.

Mr Iurwaii wants to declare the duel a draw while Lord Wellington believes it should resume tomorrow morning with fresh supplies of pizza. This started a new disagreement during which Lord Wellington challenged Mr Iurwaii to a second duel to settle how the first duel should be finished.

The matter has now been referred to the High Court in Bunting Houndsby where it will be decided whether either duel is legal, and if so whether the two duels should be held sequentially or concurrently.

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

Resorts send snow to skiers

Ski resorts have begun delivering snow by helicopter direct to skiers' homes in a move designed to protect the mountains from the environmental impacts of winter sports enthusiasts. Although it is a massive undertaking, say Sled Piler of the Alpine Resorts Institute, it works our more environmentally friendly to take the snow to each skier rather than flying all the skiers and their equipment to the mountains.  Former British downhill champion Barg Matipsonfire commented: It's great to have your own individual snow but my garden is completely flat and it appears to be too warm to keep the skiing surface in tip top condition.

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
