Following the recent re-appearance of long dead Monarchs of the British Throne during the summer silly season (as reported earlier this year by two top Spoof News Reporters), there has been a sudden and dramatic twist in the story.
The Zombie Edward VII was due to be made king at a lavish ceremony in Westminster Abbey at the weekend. Meanwhile the zombie Edward II was due to become the undisputed monarch of Scotland after beheading Alex Salmond in Edinburgh last month.
Both ceremonies in Scotland and England were interrupted at approximately the same time by giant burnings orbs of superheated energy.
As the fire died down and panicked dignitaries fled from Westminster and the Scottish Parliament Building, a tall figure appeared wearing biker's leathers and sunglasses and toting an Uzi submachine gun in Westminster, while in Scotland a smaller man wearing an American policeman's outfit appeared before the frightened crowd.
The Westminster apparition said something like "I have been sent back from the future to kill the Zombie Edward VII and restore the space time continuum" in a heavy German accent before mowing down Edward VII in a hail of hot lead. He then suddenely vanished in much the same manner as he appeared.
In Scotland, the policeman stuck a metal spike like finger through the eye and into the brain of Edward II, then said "Does anyone know where John Connor is?" before promptly melting down into the stone floor tiles. His remains are know being used as glass window surrounds in Edinburgh's Main Cathedral.
Scientists are at a loss to explain all these phenomena as usual - however, peace has been restored and the Royal Family are back from self imposed cowardly retreat at Balmoral.
