image for National Grid Cuts Price of Electricity Tonight

Following the shocking discovery that both Doctor Who and Britain's Got Talent finished its runs last week, the National Grid admits it has overstocked on domestic electricity.

The Grid has been required over previous weeks to provide extra capacity for kettles being turned on during commercial breaks and at the end of the BBC presentations; demand for the replacement shows this week has been predicted to be considerably lower for the final of crap dancing show So You Think You Can Dance and kids soda-stream classic Ice Age: The Meltdown.

The National Grid plans to rectify this by offering a flash sale between 7pm and 9pm this evening and all electricity providers will be able to get their supplies for distribution with 33% off.

Spokesman for National Grid, Karl Sparx said "we are worried, we can not store any more electricity so its either this, letting it go, or sticking Richard Hammond in a car in a big electricity sub station again! We do hope that electricity companies will pass on the savings"

Spokesman for the National Electricity Suppliers Association said "excellent, a few pennies saved will mean better champagne at the Christmas party; screw the customers"
