Read my beak: THE SKY IS FALLING!

In dramatic news today it was revealed that the sky that we all take for granted could be falling. Mr C Little sent an e-mail to the BBC's news desk suggesting that the sky could in fact be about to collapse.

Initially the BBC did not take the issue seriously, but a number of other sources began to back up the claim, and eventually the BBC announced that they were clearing the schedules to deal with what they thought could be an international emergency.

The impending catastrophe was the primary headline at 6 o' clock this evening, and dominated the BBC's News website for more than twelve hours.

NATO was put on full alert and around the world governments implemented their 'doomsday scenarios', withdrawing into bunkers and sending out their first-half nuclear weapons key sequences.

However, it seems that the panic is now over, and the BBC has gone back to its normal schedule of programmes and news coverage. Governments have relaxed back to orange alert status. It has now become apparent that Mr Little's claims were the result of thrown acorns by ITV executives looking for a way to push their problems off the front pages.

Make Roy Turse's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
