Effin' June!

Torrential downpours across the country saw two months' rain fall in 24 hours yesterday.

And weather forecasters are warning that heavy showers will return by the end of the week.

The rain has caused chaos, with floods hitting various parts of England and Wales causing schools and roads to close.

Issuing severe weather warnings for London and the South East, Met Office forecasters said this wet start to the summer was just a foretaste of the rest of June.

"Yup, 'fraid so," said a spokesman. "Flaming June's going to be a wash-out again this year - they'll be lucky to get Wimbledon done in the two weeks."

Asked why we never seem to enjoy a 'Flaming' June these days, he added: "This is 'Flaming' June... that's what we call it in public. We're not allowed to say 'f***ing June' on the radio and TV so we came up with something softer."

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