image for Stephen Hawking - WD40 saved my life

Stephen Hawking has been speaking today about how doctors at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge managed to save his life by rushing to B&Q to buy WD40.

Professor Hawking was admitted at the weekend suffering from what is thought to be a form of corrosive disease, similar to common rust. "The doctors were at a loss until one of the porters suggested that a bit of lubrication may be what was needed," said Professor Hawking today. "The doctors immediately arranged for an ambulance to rush to B&Q and buy a can for £3.99. There was a slight delay in administering the remedy, as administrators tried to decide if WD40 was available freely on the NHS, but eventually it was applied to good effect."

A spokesman for the hospital defended the delay saying, "WD40 is in actual fact a Watford postcode, which confused us for a while due to our postcode prescribing regulations, but eventually good sense prevailed and it was applied successfully."

Doctors today said that Professor Hacking's condition was 'comfortable'.
