In a shock statement almost akin to Holocaust denials, Dr Duncan Biscuits of the Media Institute Cleckheaton stated yesterday that popular TV 1970s farce 'On the Buses' never existed.
'I am aware that many viewers of a certain age will claim that they recall the antics of Stan Butler (alias Reg Varney) and his sidekick Jack during the 1970s with their endless references to Birds, Crumpet and Clippies' said Dr Biscuits,but the fact of the matter is that this unfunny TV series never existed and is merely a product of mass television audience hysteria.
In an attempt to confirm or deny this statement, our correspondents tried to contact Reg Varney earlier today, Mr Varney, who is currently appearing in 'More sex we're British at the Oldham Hippodrome was unavailable for comment.
Contact was made with Stephen Lewis aka Blakey, now star of geriatric series 'Last of the Summer Wine'. Mr Lewis stated that now he thought about it, he was not sure whether On The Buses had just been a bad dream.
