The small Leicestershire town of Melton Mowbray issued a high court injunction "against the rest of the world", earlier today. The writ, believed to be a bid to downplay the often quoted concept that The Moon is made of cheese.
In a statement defending the decision, newly elected Russian speaking Mayor, Paul Kanpickle, said: "It took this town years of hard graft and some serious backhanders to forever be associated with the famous meaty snack. It seems to me that, the cheese industry has had The Moon handed to them on a plate."
In a spat that has become known as Snack Wars, Gordon Zola for the cheddar industry responded:" The world is a great big onion, fact. The moon is made of cheese, fact. It seems to me that Melton Mowbray, is trying to get itself a slice of the pie. Next thing you know they'll be claiming that the Cheddar Gorge Caves aren't made of cheese at all".
In an effort to settle the argument, once and for all, NASA (The National Associated Snack Assembly) has offered to send two celebrity chefs into space in a baguette shaped probe. Jamie Oliver responed:pucker whilst Gordon Ramsey responded in the negative.
