Many thought England had a king!?

British readers across the United Kingdom were shocked this morning to hear that they had a King and that that King was advising them on economics.

Margaret Kennsington-Ahearn of Skinnyknees on Kudaheee told TheSpoof.com and the Guardian, two of England's leading trash depositories, "I went to bed with my dear Nigel and we'd a Queen...I woke up and there's news a a King! Nigel and I cuddled for safety for the first time in years!"

Viola Juliet Desdemona-Capulet of Verona by Genoa on Cardiff reported that it was not the King-Thing that shook her but rather the content of the royal warning: "Me and me mate, Petulis Clark-Alanis could give a fig about a queen, prince, king or duke of earl. But economics is our butter and bread and to hear that a royal cared enough to talk about something that mattered to the people...well, we perked up our nips and took a listen!"

Guardian, TheSpoof.com's partner in facts and fiction, cleared up the confusion later on in the day while spoof editors were still sleeping it off: "The Bank of England governor, Mervyn King, admitted yesterday that the economy might grind to a halt this year - but warned that the continuing risk of inflation made further interest rate cuts unlikely."
