Residents of London woke this morning in partial darkness, as huge cloud of smug hung over the city. After initial confusion and some reports of panic, the source of the smug was finally discovered to have been a by-product of Conservative Party leader David Cameron's recent speech.
It was shortly after Mr Cameron declared that he was prepared to put his differences with Gordon Brown to one side and team up with the Prime Minister in a classic super hero/sidekick manner, that the thick smug started to build over the nation's capital city. "I am prepared to be the Batman to the Prime Minister's Robin, until this financial Joker is over" Mr Cameron later told the press.
Friends of the Earth have warned that the environmental consequences of so much smug over the city could be "catastrophic". Spokesperson Lilly Vegan called for action from the Friends of the Earth hovel in Battersea: "This is truly frightening amount of smug. We all saw the filthy smug over the Birds Nest Stadium at the Beijing Olympics earlier this year, but evidence is suggesting that David Cameron alone might produce up to 400 times the smug of that produced by the Chinese organisers of the Olympics."
When questioned about the dangers of his smug, Mr Cameron felt no need for a verbal response, but instead leaned back in his chair, folded his arms and smirked.
