A local misery was today questioning the traditional name for the Friday of the Easter holidays.

The day has been named 'Good Friday' since time immemorial and comes after 'Maundy Thursday' and before, simply, Saturday and Easter Sunday and Monday.

But Mr Oscar Hammerstein the Second, who says he is no relation to the celebrated lyricist famous for having hit shows such as South Pacific and The Sound Of Music with composer Richard Rodgers, of Khartoum Tarrace, says the name is a misnomer.

"What's bloody good about it?" He mithered this morning. "I had to go to work for 6.30 as normal while everyone else was still in bed. It was bloody freezing and when I got in the bloody software that is essential for my work had crashed.

"Of course, there's no bloody IT support because it's a bloody so-called public holiday. Everyone is a bastard!

"Like I said, what's 'Good' about it?"

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
