Tex, could you sticky this thread please?

Anyway, as a companion to the funny pictures thread I propose this thread on funny news articles or spoof stories (that is, stories that are not true but are based on something that is). No debate here, just a fun thread for our own childish amusement. To start, this one from "NewsThump", a spoof news website formerly known as NewsArse. Yesterday it was announced that the British Monarchy will have its own Facebook page that people can "like" and receive updates. Real story here. This is NewsThumps's take on the whole thing:

Queen already pestering her subjects for Farmville assistance

Just days after opening her Facebook account, the Queen is already said to be pestering her millions of subjects for help growing a virtual farm that absolutely nobody cares about.


The Monarchy Facebook page was meant to be a new way of communicating with the country, but has merely provided a gateway to the addictive underbelly of the world’s most popular social networking site.

A Buckingham Palace insider told us, “It started off as a bit of fun, the Queen said, ‘Oh, I have some real farms, this should be a laugh’.”

“Before we knew it she was waking up the staff at all hours insisting they help her build a virtual barn because she had to have it right that second.”

“What could we do? We’ve all tried defriending her, but she’s the Queen, I think she can still technically have us beheaded – which she actually threatened to do if I didn’t help her sell some non-existent bushels to her made-up neighbouring farms.”

Monarchy Facebook page

Royal family observers are already suggesting that the Queen has gone too far with her incessant poking of Royal households around the world.

Reginald Rotherhithe of the The Royal Correspondent said, “I heard that King Juan Carlos of Spain found it all highly amusing, but Emporer Akihito of Japan is frankly fed up of having his news feed filled with the Queen’s horoscopes and spammy quizzes she’s taken to determine how sexy she it.”

“Plus she keeps tagging people in embarrassing photos. She’s becoming something of a pest, unfortunately.”

Nice man wins Nobel prize for meeting job description

US President Barack Obama has been awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize for being an all-round nice guy, and pretty much adhering to his job description.

There were a record 205 nominations for this year’s peace prize. Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai and Chinese dissident Hu Jia had been among the favourites who do not have a powerful army at their disposal.

The Nobel Committee explained that President Obama was a deserving winner, despite being in post for just ten months.

Recognition

“Mr Obama has done extremely well in his short time in office.”

“He has managed to not invade any more sovereign states, and this obvious restraint deserves recognition.”

“Also, the civilian deaths caused by US troops around the world is waaay down on last year – another reason for celebration.”

“But best of all, he has agreed to reduce his haul of nuclear weapons to a level capable of destroying the planet just three times over – again a significant improvement on the last guy.”

“I mean, he could literally make one phone call and Iran would disappear off the face of the Earth, but he hasn’t made that call yet, and for that reason, we happily award him this nice big prize ahead of many lesser-known pacifists and human rights campaigners.”

The award has demonstrated a shift in the awarding criteria to favour those nominees who can prove they are definitely not George W Bush.

One former losing nominee derided the committee’s decision, saying, “So basically he’s got the award for not being as bad as the last guy in his job? Well the last guy who had my job used to piss in the customers soup, so why not give it me!”

Hawking has “ruined it for everyone” - God

Writing exclusively for today’s Times ahead of the serialisation of his new book, God has complained that “Stephen Hawking has ruined it for everyone”. I won’t link to the piece, because it is behind the Times paywall, meaning that its existence has to be taken on trust. But the essence of God’s argument is that his existence has always been about faith. Professor Hawking’s announcement of God’s non-existence has “forced Me to come out into the open to show that I really do exist,” God writes. “The problem with this is that My followers no longer require faith. That may mean they now stop following Me. Except maybe on Twitter.”

PR experts have questioned the wisdom of God’s move, arguing that he is only giving weight to Professor Hawking’s story, which had hitherto only been based on hearsay, the laws of physics and rational thought. Nevertheless, God believes His actions to be the right ones. “The three of Us talked about it and came to the conclusion that We had to do something,” he says.

God also defends Himself against allegations of “mind-tapping”. There is nothing illegal about listening to other people’s thoughts, he believes. “The fact that I have a record of everything everyone has ever said, thought or done and have announced My intention to use these records against them in future decision-making does not contravene any laws, including the data protection act,” God writes. “Anyway, Google does it.”

Funny news stories/Spoof news Empty Suicide Bombers To Go On Strike

Suicide Bombers To Go On Strike

Unknown
Nov. 22, 2010


Even journalists should be allowed a little time and room for frivolity. Here is a good spoof on a current concern in England.




Muslim suicide bombers in Britain are set to begin a three-day strike on Monday in a dispute over the number of virgins they are entitled to in the afterlife.

Emergency talks with Al Qaeda have so far failed to produce an agreement.

The unrest began last Tuesday when Al Qaeda announced that the number of virgins a suicide bomber would receive after his death will be cut by 25% this February, from 72 to only 60. The rationale for the cut was the increase in recent years of the number of suicide bombings and a subsequent shortage of virgins in the afterlife.

The suicide bomber's union, the British Organization of Occupational Martyrs (BOOM) responded with a statement that this was unacceptable to its members and immediately balloted for strike action. General Secretary Abdullah Amir told the press, "Our members are literally working themselves to death in the cause of Jihad. We don't ask for much in return, and to be treated like this is like a kick in the teeth."

Speaking from his shed in Tipton in the West Midlands, in which he currently resides, Al Qaeda chief executive Osama bin Laden explained, "We sympathize with our workers concerns, but Al Qaeda is simply not in a position to meet their demands. They are simply not accepting the realities of modern-day Jihad in a competitive marketplace.

Thanks to Western depravity there is now a chronic shortage of virgins in the afterlife. It's a straight choice between reducing expenditure and laying people off. I don't like cutting wages but I'd hate to have to tell 3,000 of my staff that they won't be able to blow themselves up."

Spokespersons for the Union in the north east of England, Ireland, Wales, and the entire Australian continent stated that the strike would not affect their operations, as "there are no virgins in their areas anyway."

Apparently the drop in the number of suicide bombings has been put down to the emergence of Scottish singing star Susan Boyle - now that Muslims know what an actual virgin looks like they are not so keen on going to paradise.

Kim Jong Il backs Sarah Palin presidential bid

Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin has today received the influential backing of North Korean leader Kim Jong Il in her potential campaign to run for President in 2012.


After hearing Palin tell a radio presenter that US should work more closely with its Allies in North Korea, Jong Il is said to have written a cheque in support of the Tea Party favourite.

He told the official North Korean newspaper, “She has shown just the sort of grasp of world affairs that would make her a keen ally to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.”

“We can guarantee her the votes of at least 30 million North Koreans, which I am told are about as valuable as votes cast in Florida in a US Presidential election.”

“This is the best thing anyone has said about North Korea since earlier this week when David Cameron said we had ‘mad skillz’. Yes he did, yes he did, yes he did.”

“Plus, if Sarah Palin becomes President there’ll be no more of those annoying nuclear inspections and stuff, because I’m pretty sure she’ll believe absolutely everything we tell her.”

Sarah Palin’s North Korea

When told of Kim Jong Il’s backing, Palin said she was delighted to receive his endorsement, claiming it was further evidence of her growing standing on the International stage.

She told reporters, “It shows yet again that the world is ready for a change, the sort of change only I can offer. At least Kim Jong Il can see it.”

“His endorsement means a lot to me, as I’ve always admired China, apart from when they bombed Pearl Harbour.”

The US Democrats were keen to see how this all plays out, with one member telling us, “You know what, we’re totally behind North Korea on this. Please, please, PLEASE let Sarah Palin be the Republican presidential nominee.”

“Please.”

I’m so important I simply had to make this journey, insist stranded mid-level executive pricks

Hundreds of stranded mid-level executives have insisted that the ‘only travel if you absolutely must’ warnings do not apply to them because if they don’t get to the office, the quarterly figures will be a day late making negligible difference to anyone at all.

A large number of thoroughly unimportant people are now blocking major roads and even some motorways due to the fact they failed to recognise that what they do is completely inconsequential.

With road treatment suspended as a result, road conditions are deteriorating rapidly in some areas because someone in a low-end BMW was somehow convinced their role in a faceless corporation was worth risking the safety of other road users and emergency service workers.

Freezing executive Gary Williams told us, “I had no choice, I don’t think you understand what happens if the figures go into the system a bit late. It pushes everything back by a day. A WHOLE day!”

Another told us, “Look, I have a company Blackberry. Do you think they give Blackberry’s to employees whose role is not pivotal to the success of the business, and therefore the economy as a whole?”

“Yes my business card has executive at the end of it, why?”

Travellers stranded

Executive pricks have also warned against the example that they would be setting if they chose not to make the roads more dangerous for absolutely everybody else.

“What would my employees think?” continued Williams.

“Well, I guess I mean employee. Technically I share her with two other executives – and she only works Wednesdays and Fridays – but it’s still important I set the right example, even if she is from a temp agency.”

“Now if you don’t mind, I have to dial into a conference call during which I will contribute nothing useful whatsoever.”

Spare a thought for all those who’ve had their flight cancelled, say UK homeless

With the UK experiencing subzero temperatures, and the vulnerable faced with life-threatening conditions, the UK’s homeless have asked people to spare a thought for those facing long delays at the nation’s airports.

With some travellers forced to spend one whole night at Heathrow, the homeless have set up a charity that they hope will raise awareness of the plight currently being experienced by those eager to go on holiday over the Christmas period.

“Whilst the people that are homeless are genuinely real people, they can only try to imagine what it must be like to be faced with long delays for a flight to Antigua.” said a spokeshobo.

“I’ve heard stories that the W H Smith at Gatwick is running out of books, and all that’s left is an Alan Titchmarsh autobiography and a copy of The Da Vinci Code.”

“That sort of adversity is something that deserves 24×7 news coverage and the undivided attention of the nation.”

Flights cancelled due to snow

Miriam Chimpney-Waters has been at Heathrow for over 11 hours, and despite being stupid enough to think that her flight would be flying out as scheduled, is angry that she is suffering an inconvenience.

“It’s an outrage,” she blasted. “This has been an awful year for the middle classes, a real annus horribilis.”

“What’s even more frustrating is that I can’t blame Gordon Brown!”

The Met Office has warned of more snow and ice in many parts of the country, with one meteorologist comparing the chances of people getting their flights today with the liklihood of “Sue Pollard and Stephen Hawking taking the lead roles in a remake of Last Tango in Paris.”

Other tragic tales from over the weekend include:

* Emily and Gareth Worboys being faced with the real possibility that the Buzz Lightyear night light projector that they ordered for son Toby, may not arrive in time for Christmas.
* Margaret Frampton being unable to collect the goose she’s ordered from M&S for Christmas lunch, meaning she’d have to try again later in the week. Something she described as “A bit of a bloody pain actually”
* Roy Gardener not being able to play his usual round of golf on Sunday morning.

Have you been affected by the heavy snow and ice or have your travel plans been disrupted? Then please don’t get in touch as we literally could not give less of a shit.

"Terrible year". The Queen used the term some 15-20 years ago to describe one particular year. Of course, the problems experienced by her family in that year (I think 1992) was nothing compared to the problems everybody else went through during that recession. Public support for the royal family hit a low that year.

Is that it then? ask the nation’s spoiled children

As adults return to work following the festive period, children across the nation have today asked if a year of good behaviour was really worth a couple of days playing with toys they’re already bored with.

After a year of financial difficulty for many families, budgets have been stretched to give frankly ungrateful children a series of over-priced plastic novelty items that already been discarded for ever.

Seven year old Tarquin Copson-James told us, “Santa has let me down, frankly. I don’t buy all this recession rubbish.”

“All year long my parents have told me that Santa was watching me to make sure I was well behaved, and I was.”

“Yet all I got was a PS3, a quad bike, a football goal, some transformers, a spiderman, remote control car and about a dozen other things I haven’t even opened yet, but they’ll be rubbish, I just know it.”

“I have to tell you, a year spent fighting my natural urge to behave like an out of control psychopathic shit really doesn’t seem worth it.”

Control

Parents groups have defended the commercialisation of the holiday, claiming the threat of Santa seeing them is the only thing stopping their broods turning every home into a modern reenactment of Lord of the Flies.

Concerned parent Sharon Foster said, “For the last few years my standard disciplinary technique has been to shout ‘Santa is taking notes you know’”

“But if the kids don’t appreciate the tat I buy them after the threats, where is my leverage? No, you don’t understand, my kids are evil, I am genuinely frightened where this will all end.”

One parent told us, “Next year I’m going to hire a hypnotist to make my kids think they’ve had all these great presents, and that they are already bored of them – it will be much, much cheaper.”

You’ve clearly had too many dinner parties with other Tories, public tells Warsi

Baroness Warsi’s claims that prejudice against Muslims has ‘passed the dinner-table test’ has prompted the public to tell her that she must have been attending too many dinner parties with other Tories.

Baroness Warsi will use her speech at Leicester University to say that anti-Muslim prejudice is now seen by many Britons as normal and uncontroversial, and she will use her position to fight an ‘ongoing battle against bigotry, unless it’s directed at homosexuals’.

People who have dinner parties have expressed surprise at the claims by the Co-Chairman of the Conservative Party and the most prominent Muslim MP in the country.

“I had a few friends over for dinner last night, and I can honestly say that the subject of Islam didn’t crop up.” revealed 28 year-old Kim Nolan.

“We did however have quite an interesting discussion about Baroness Warsi’s campaign leaflets in which she said that schools were promoting homosexuality and that lowering the age of consent for homosexuality from 18 to 16, allowed schoolchildren to be propositioned for homosexual relationships.”

“That and Eastenders. Oh, and Katie Price and Alex Reid.”

Baroness Warsi claims Islamophobia rife

Warsi will use her speech to warn that it is dangerous to separate moderate and extreme Muslims, leading to suggestions she’s happy for all Muslims to be lumped in with beliefs of Osama Bin Laden.

“Oh, I get it,” continued Nolan, “She’s trying to put the ‘fun’ back in Islamic Fundamentalist. Yeah, good luck with that.”

Christians have reacted angrily to claims by Baroness Warsi that prejudice against Muslims does not attract the social stigma attached to prejudice against other religious groups.

“That’s rubbish, we are always getting picked on for our beliefs encapsulating love, forgiveness and tolerance” said a Church of England spokesperson.

“Nice campaign leaflets on the sicko bummers, though.”

Cannabis use raises psychosis risk, claim Illuminati-backed psychedelic elephants

Using cannabis as a teenager or young adult increases the risk of psychosis according to the herd of psychedelic elephants that use your wardrobe as an HQ.

The elephants claim the study, which they published in the British Medical Journal who are also in on it, involved tracking 1900 people over a period of 10 years as they moved from bedroom to sofa to fridge and then back to the sofa.

The research was led by Professor Jim Van Os from Maastricht University and his friends in the Knights Templar, but if you rearrange the letters of his name it spells MJ So Vain which may or may not be significant.

Jasmine Orinoco , leader of the elephants, said, “Funding for the project came from generous members of the Illuminati who are a bit flush at the moment what with running the world’s banks, including Barclays.”

“They’re also the ones who put that pyramid with the strange eye on the dollar bill but I can’t tell you much more than that right now except it’s something to do with opening up your chakras.”

Cannabis causes psychosis

Orinoco, who just wouldn’t bloody shut up once he got started, went on:

“MJ or Michael Jackson knew too much that’s why he had to be silenced. And a friend of mine who worked on the set of the Thriller Video reckons they used real zombies which they smuggled in from Haiti.”

Professor Van Os, meanwhile, sought to play down his definite links with the Knights Templar, but did admit to receiving cash from the Illuminati, insisting they’re the ones who persuaded NASA to fake the Moon landings and are also to blame for the starter packs from Lloyds TSB being a bit shit.

He also said that stuff about cannabis making you more creative is probably a load of bollocks but it can help with your sciatica.

He added, “I’m just nipping out for a minute. Do you want another packet of Wagon Wheels ?”

I gained weight when I quit smoking cigs (also in 1989). I went from 165 to 180. I'm 240 now. All gut! ROFL This new job will bring me back down to around 200, which is where I was when I got laid off 2 years ago. Yes, being unemployed makes ya fat!

Apart from the 10lbs I gained in boot (all muscle), my weight never really varied until I hit my 40's, and even then, it was only after I quit practicing Tae Kwon Do that I started to put on some weight...

I never used any other drugs except pot. Probably a good thing, too.

I gained weight when I quit smoking cigs (also in 1989). I went from 165 to 180. I'm 240 now. All gut! ROFL This new job will bring me back down to around 200, which is where I was when I got laid off 2 years ago. Yes, being unemployed makes ya fat!

That's the difference between the 80's and the late-60's, early-70's... we were a little more experimental with the drugs... we're talking uppers, downers, coke, heroin (the one drug I never did), and of course LSD in all it's many forms... not to mention the black-opiated hash, the Thai sticks, the Acapulco Gold Gold Wrapper and Hawaiian sinsemilla...

I think the PM has the support of the whole country on this one...

David Cameron attacks 'annoying' Ed Balls

David Cameron dubbed shadow chancellor Ed Balls "the most annoying person in modern politics" during noisy Commons exchanges.

The PM had his dig at Mr Balls as he was trying to answer a question from Labour MP Joan Whalley.

"I wish the shadow chancellor would occasionally shut up and listen to the answer," said Mr Cameron.

He told a grinning Mr Balls: "I may be alone in thinking him the most annoying person in modern politics."

And - with MPs in uproar - he added a further jibe about Mr Balls' supposed party leadership ambitions, saying: "I've got a feeling the leader of the opposition will one day agree with me, but there we are."

'Good-natured'

The prime minister then got on with answering Mrs Whalley's call for an enterprise zone for her Staffordshire constituency.

According to Mr Balls' office, the shadow chancellor had been shouting across the chamber at the prime minister to accuse him of not answering MPs' questions. He had waved a glass of water at Mr Cameron to suggest he should "calm down".

"We are pretty surprised he snapped. It clearly touched a nerve," said Mr Balls's spokesman.

The weekly Commons clash had got off to a good-natured start, with Mr Cameron congratulating Labour leader Ed Miliband on his forthcoming marriage to partner Justine, and the two men swapping jokes about organising a stag night.

But it became increasingly ill-tempered, as Mr Cameron laid into Mr Miliband's speech to the TUC anti-cuts rally in London's Hyde Park on Saturday.

"Far from standing on the shoulders of the suffragettes - or whatever nonsense we heard at the weekend - the fact is the right honourable gentleman is sitting in a great big pool of debt that was his creation and he's got absolutely no idea what to do about it," said Mr Cameron to loud Conservative cheers.

Then Mr Cameron brushed off a question from Labour's Chris Williamson by saying he had "no idea" who the MP was.

The Derby North MP had called for a personal apology from Mr Cameron, who he said had accused him of misleading people on an election leaflet over winter fuel payments.

"I can't believe I accused him of anything because I had absolutely no idea who he was," said Mr Cameron, adding that the government had kept the winter fuel payments as it had promised.

Mr Cameron's comments about Mr Balls came near the end of what was the last Prime Minister's Questions session for four weeks because of the Easter break.
