A local Luddite movement in Englandshire is up in non-mechanical arms this week, as one of their young brethrens attempt to do a good turn has taken a turn for the unpleasant, with name calling and even some physical gesticulating in the general direction of the young man in question.
It all started when local bright spark, Jethro Dull, was concerned with the debilitating effect that constantly hunting down and destroying machinery was having on his elderly parents "They are getting on a bit" stated the fresh faced youngster "and I only wanted to help, I didn't think anyone would mind, in fact I thought they would be really happy at being able to do away with more mechanical contrivances with a greater alacrity." continued the green behind the ears youth.
The head of the local Luddite movement, Sarah Connor, said "Doesn't he realise what he is doing? His contraption will be the undoing of us all" Sarah Connors son, John, who is a class mate of Jethro, said "He is always scribbling on bits of paper in class when he should be working. Last week he drew a design for a mechanical girlfriend that he called spinning Jenny"
According to young Jethro, his new contrabulous fabtraption can destroy twice as many machines, four times faster than six humans, and he surmises thusly "That's got to be a time saver for the technophobe in a hurry"
