Residents of many villages on The Isle of Wight have been preparing for the end of the world, like many people worldwide.
Newby mayor, Arthur Askme (yes - he is STILL in office) told our intrepid female reporter that Newby residents have been preparing for this event since the 'beginning of Newby'.
"It is always a threat', said the mayor.
"How the hell can we take it seriously anymore? For Monty Python's sake, give us all a break.
We can't do a bloody thing about it if it DOES come about to be true, so, residents of Newby always live EVERY day to the full.
We 'prepare' for the end of the World as we know it by continuing to have BINGO nights over at the Community Centre.
We continue to welcome visitors to the Island, especially Spoof Writers.
Life goes on - until it ends.
Think about it.....EVERY DAY IS THE END OF THE WORLD FOR SOME POOR BUGGER!
