You will watch it, and you will enjoy it.

Hipster Kevin Wilkes, who has just set up a business sewing mittens together, so that fully-grown adults can relive a tiny amount of their long-forgotten childhood, has had a busy week, for today he is also opening up the first Etch-a-sketch cafe.

Sketchers, in the High Street of Chutney on the Fritz, sells a full range of artisan coffees, tea blends, and craft beer, all drunk from jam-jars, as well as being fully equipped with more than fifty etch-a-sketches, so that people can relive the 1980s all over again.

'It has always been my dream,' said Wilkes, 'to open a refectory like this, where people can drink to their hearts' content, and relive the memories of their youth, of being able to draw a limited selection of shapes and ideas on a piece of plastic, that would then be shaken by an older angry sibling or a friend.'

'All of that work,' said Wilkes' close friend, Shagger, 'and nothing to show for it. It reminds me of my time at university.'

To have a similar experience, buy the most expensive coffee, tea and artisan beer you can, find an old etch-a-sketch in your loft, your neighbour's attic, or the local charity shop, and have the same under-whelming experience at home.

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