Journal continues despite arrests

The International Journal of Nonsense will continue to publish despite its entire editorial team's being arrested, the owners have announced.

Speaking from a grassy knoll in Dallas, chairman of Man Mountain Enterprises, Mr Grave Consikwenses said: It is unfortunate that our entire editorial staff decided to put on balaclavas last night and break into the Bank of Sidings. It is even more unfortunate that they were caught. But an august journal like the International Journal of Nonsense is more than just a group of writers and researchers. It is also a dedicated team of advertisement sales personnel. 

Mr Consikwenses went on to explain that the IJN team are innocent until proven guilty and that he would stand behind them to the last. His decision, he explained, to replace them immediately was purely a matter of logistics. 

Speaking from his cell in Catford Sidings Police Station, former IJN editor Horse McBumblefluff said: We would have got away with it if it hadn't been for those pesky kids.

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

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.

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
