image for Pound goes missing

Markets were spooked this afternoon after Mervyn King, governor of the Bank of England took 'the pound' out for lunch and forgot to put it back.

Brokers, some of them sober, were incensed that the pound could not be traded this afternoon and asked for its whereabouts.

Market-makers have vowed to punish the pound when the markets open again on Sunday evening in Tokyo.

King meanwhile, rudderless through the effects of alcohol and ketamine offered little comfort, intimating it may be in Mayfair, Bournemouth or even Monaco.

Bank of England sources launched a staunch defence, stating the pound had had a 'rough time of it' recently and deserved to make the most of the bank holiday.
