image for Shakespeare Originals Found At London Car Boot Sale
The books were found at a car boot sale in Tottenham

Reports today that genuine manuscripts of the plays of William Shakespeare are turning up with monotonous regularity at a car boot sale in Tottenham North London.

Police are baffled as to what the source of the literary forgeries is but they are continuing with their inquiries.

In the meantime, The Spoof can report on one theory that's 'surfacing' across the internet that goes something like this.

A Mr Big has gathered together an infinite number of monkeys and supplied them all with a typewriter and as they say...do the math yourself.

The monkeys are thought to be packed into a derelict kebab shop in London's Dalston in what are sure to be appalling conditions and Kate Humble is racing against the clock to find them before time runs out.

Well-known thespian Sir Ian McKellen has appealed for anybody who finds themselves in possession of one of the manuscripts to under no circumstances attempt to perform it.

"Shakespeare is bad enough in the hands of pro's but could well prove fatal for those whose only acting experience is having done a bit when they were kids at the Xmas nativity play. Say, maybe an inn-keeper or a star or something like that" said Gandalf as he leaned wearily on his staff before leaving to have a bit of a ruck with Sauron the Dark Lord
