And there's no 'F' in bus stop

Now that psychic paper has gone on sale at branches of Ryman's, NAUBCCPA, the National Association of Unrelenting Bloody Council Car Parking Attendants, has expressed concern that it may affect the effectiveness of their members in issuing motoring stealth tax invoices - or parking tickets as they are sometimes called - to motorists who park over their allotted ticket time.

Psychic paper, invented in the future around 2487, was brought back from the Artrean Supernova Galaxy by Dr Who who was on a visit to Metebelis Three sometime in the future. When shown to someone, it induces them to see whatever the user wishes them to see printed on it. A bit like a Labour Party election manifesto.

A spokesman for NAUBCCPA said:

"It is worrying that motorists will now be able to go up to the attendants of our bomb sites disguised cleverly as car parks, holding their psychic paper to dispute any ticketing of their vehicle should they park 20 seconds over their paid-for time.

"They will be able to pretend the time is wrong, or that they are on an important M15 stakeout, that they are an Arctic Monkey, Amy Winehouse or even that they are the President of a foreign country - except Zimbabwe of course, as not even the most hardline, hard-of-thinking Jihadist homicide bomber would admit that."

A spokesman for the RAC said:

"As long as motorists don't use psychic paper to pretend they are members of the RAC, well frankly, I don't give a bugger - stuff the councils and their car parks, and my thanks to Dr Who and Rymans."

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