London, England-- Scotland Yard is reporting tonight the discovery of 'thousands' of rotting corpses, scattered throughout Buckingham Palace. The horrific discovery comes after a skeleton was discovered only 100 yards from the palace back in March. Scotland Yard says some of the corpses go all the way back to the time of Queen Victoria. No foul play is suspected at this time, but Scotland Yard is still investigating.
Police on the scene describe the palace as "something out of an Edgar Allen Poe nightmare".
"We found rotting bodies stacked up like logs in the basement. We found dozens of heads inside refrigerators and freezers. We even found dead bodies cooking in ovens, it was just absolutely horrific!" said one inspector.
The dead bodies were of all ages and sexes, from infants to the elderly. No one knows how they ended up in Buckingham Palace, at least at this time.
Scotland Yard says the worst scene was in Queen Elizabeth's bedchamber. Dozens of dead bodies were found stuffed under her bed, rotting away. The stench was "unbelievable", according to one eyewitness.
When the queen was questioned about the grisly scene, she had a quick reply:
"Doesn't everybody have dead bodies under their beds??"
There was one bit of black humour to lighten the grisly scene. One of the dead bodies removed from the palace turned out to be alive.
"Hey, wait! I'm still alive!' said Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. "I really am still alive!"
