The long suffering wife of internet satire site contributor, Martin Shuttlecock, was laughing her head off at about six am BST, Saturday morning, according to sources.
After working until ten pm the previous evening, Shuttlecock had apparently clonked long suffering wife, Anne, on the head with his elbow as he turned over in bed.
Never slow on the uptake, Anne quickly roused her errant significant other and advised him that he was going to be late for work.
Even though it was a Saturday, and Shuttlecock doesn't work Saturdays. (Unless it's overtime.)
A bewildered (nothing new there then - Ed) Shuttlecock, suddenly sat bolt upright, said: "Oh bollocks!" and started scrambling about for his work clothes.
Anne later revealed that she had to stifle a giggle, or several, before putting Shuttlecock out of his misery by informing him that it was a Saturday, and that he wasn't actually working.
So he could go back to sleep.
Which he promptly did. After almost suffering a coronary infarction.
"He really is a daft bastard," Anne told reporters. "And he deserves all he gets."
Shuttlecock has vowed to exact revenge for the incident.
"She's a fucking sadist is my Missus," he wept. "But she'll get hers. Don't you worry your head about that."
More as we get it.
