Gladys Knight, who is famous for her Pips, has decided to cancel her midnight train to Georgia.
At a tear-filled press conference earlier today, she said that given the recent trouble between Georgia and Russia, she felt she could no longer justify publicising the midnight train to Georgia in her song. Her agent, Benny Grabitz said:
"Miss Knight has been extremely troubled of late regarding the safety of passengers on the midnight train to Georgia, which connects Moscow to Tbilisi. She felt that given the recent unrest there, she could no longer sing about a service that could pose a danger to passengers.
"She has decided, therefore, to honour the UK as inventors of the train and rewrite the famous hit song, She has renamed it the "Delayed, Over-capacity, Cross Country Train to Newcastle" and the song will now concentrate on praising British commuters, who stand in the gangways and by the toilets for most of their journey, wishing them a better train experience.
"As they say on Cross Country, 'The onboard shop is now open, serving a range of completely over-priced and stale snacks past their sell-by-date. It's your own fault for not buying food at that supermarket on the way to the station'."
