Porridge gangs quelled

Outbreaks of violence between gangs who illegally sell porridge were quelled by Catford Sidings police last night.

Tensions were thought to have been triggered by death of porridge don, Grumpo Porridgioni who ran most of the porridge rackets in the Catford Sidings area.

We cornered a number of individuals who had been throwing illicit porridge at about 1am this morning, said Chief Inspector Bungo Envelope. For a while it was getting sticky out there, but then we called in the milk cannon.  

But some say the violence resulted from mismanagement by the Catford Sidings authorities.

It's time we legalised porridge, said Dame Navinia Throatswetch of the League to Legalise Porridge. Thousands of people use it. If we got it all out in the open we wouldn't be prey to these gangs.  

Possession of porridge is illegal in Catford Sidings under bylaw 4126b which has banned anything Scots since 1984. That was the year that a number of caber tossers ruined the Catford Sidings Fete causing outrage among leading Sidingonians.

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

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
