Exceedingly Good - Not so Cheap

A man diagnosed as "deeply sad" was said to be improving last night. Doctors say his condition was triggered by falling into a dilemma last Friday evening.

Ian Boddy, 37 of Granville Gardens, Luton was seen shopping in his local supermarket at around 8pm. Staff reported Mr Boddy hovering near Bread and Pastries, apparently hoping for some marked-down cakes.

Assistant Mike Cahill told TheSpoof "The pecan Danishes and croissants were already marked down to 25p but he didn't seem interested. He asked me when they were going down to 10p. I told him I was going to mark down them again at 8.30 and he then became agitated. He said he had to get back in time to watch Gardener's World but he also wanted the cakes at 10p. He was kind of frozen to the spot for about five minutes. We couldn't get the new bread delivery around him".

According to doctors what had compounded Mr Boddy's condition was that he had forgot his mobile otherwise he could have phoned his wife to video Gardener's World.

It was then that Mr Boddy was rushed out of the store to a nearby hospital where he was diagnosed as "deeply sad".
