In one of the biggest co-ordinated international police swoops in history, Disney Productions California was cordoned off and Julie Andrew was arrested in the early hours of this morning. An F.B.I source said, "We have a result".
The culmination of two years of surveillance and internet snooping have resulted in "Operation Medicine Spoon" being a success. "A lot of people will be going without sugar in their tea this morning!" a police diet enforcement officer (D.E.A.) told our health and safety reporter.
The operation was started two years ago in response to the Daily Mail revelations that sugar was bad for you.
A blatant reference to sugar was found in the song "A Spoonful of Sugar Helps the Medicine Go Down" in the Mary Poppins Movie. Dick Von Dyke was helping police with their inquiries after voluntarily attending his local precinct Police Department. The police swoop was timed to co-incide with and prevent the worldwide release of Blue-Ray versions of "Mary Poppins".
The crackdown follows recent tabloid articles linking "recreational" carbohydrates like sugar to black treacle addiction and the now illegal class "A" carbohydrate, brown sugar.
Mick Jaggre's house was searched last year after a live performance of the song, "Brown Sugar" was halted in Central Park. An emergency replacement for the Strolling Stones concert was quickly found when Eltan John stepped out of the audience and played "Crocodile Rock" on the keyboard.
Scientists were last night analysing the contents of several packets of Werthers Originals for illegal sugar content and deciding whether Seaside Rock or Crocodile Rock were illegal.
