The beautiful Emporer Stag, photographed days ago in a stunning picture admired by millions, was killed on orders from the Queen.
'There's a Monarch in this country' she fumed' and that is me. We can't have an Emporer as well. I will not be undermined!'
'But mother, it was a Stag' explained a distraught Charles 'it was only called an Emporer because he was so handsome. Like they call Lions King of the Jungle'.
'No Charles none of your wet animal rights stuff with me. This threat to my throne had to be dealt with and Philip obliged with a blinding shot that eliminated the power mad animal.'
No amount of explanation could shift the Queen's feeling of justification. Nick Clegg quickly jumped in with support in the House of Commons. 'I realise that before the election we said we would always oppose the killing of Stags for Sport but this was different. The Emporer Stag could have been the beginning of the end for the Monarchy in this country. The Queen was right to have the animal put down. Prince Philip saved us all from tyranny.'
Her Majesty's Opposition, appreciating that they had to maintain their loyalty to the Queen, nodded in agreement.
